    Pros

    Knowledge on line, vast resources of knowledge, many opportunities to work in various places in the world, opportunities for diversity. All in all a great place to work.

    Cons

    Mired in bureaucratic procedures that stifle productivity and creativity that mire project staffs in doldrums. Management sometimes is out of touch with challenges of the working staff.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid placing new hires in positions that require extensive knowledge of Fluor Practices. Take a few weeks to train them offline, then inject them into a practicing organization. Train the employees for their specific client and project tasks - don't expect them to apply general (notwithstanding proven) procedures to each situation. Help clients help themselves.

    Pros

    Fluor treats their employees like a big family. I love the inclusive culture.

    Cons

    Cyclical just like any EPC.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to promote and develop top talent. The more recognition that is given to younger engineers for their hard work, the more motivated they will be.

    Pros

    Latest Management team is working to improve overall performance and work environment. Weekly Pay, Compensation is fair. Insurance is offered, but is expensive. 401K match is offered.

    Cons

    Difficult work environment, relationship with customer is adversarial, office conditions leave much to be desired, union workforce has a poor relationship with management, no training or workforce development offered, high turnover among management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve customer relations, improve employee relations, hire adequate staff to perform work functions, retain workforce, develop and train workforce, streamline work flow processes.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, large high profile projects, opportunity to travel to domestic & international jobs. Many locations to work from with offices worldwide.

    Cons

    No projects means no job. Large design offices don't support all business lines, so employees tend to get stuck in a "silo" working for different business lines, making it difficult to expand into new business.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to retain employees during slow periods. More focus should be placed on family-work balance beyond what the law requires.

    Pros

    There was nothing good. Don't bother looking for any of the good, there is none. There are none for women anyway.

    Cons

    I was not given the tools to do my job for one. I lugged my own printer, laptop and phone to jobs and they wouldn't even provide a token ID to get into the intranet! Cost a lousy $5 a month and said no. Mind you I was in a professional position, with required reports each month that required company intranet access. I was denied every bit of training I asked for as well. Now, you would think that I was a bump on the log, to fill a gender quota (that's how I was treated), but when I needed some time off to see my dying father it was -- "oh no, you can't take time off." I was almost fired when I basically said, "I have 10 weeks of vacation available, because you never let me take time off. I can get another job, I can't get another dad." The favoritism, the nepotism, the discrimination against those who are educated and ambitious are qualities that are embraced -- not rebuked in any way -- at Fluor. I hate what they did to my career and my life.
