    Flex Schedule. Good Benefits. Great people to work with for the most part.

    Former Employee - Employment Supervisor in Redwood Shores, CA

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Fluor for 13 years; if you pay attention and work as a team player, it exceeds the other top EPC firms for which I worked in terms of learning curve on project execution, employee relations and employee/management loyalty. If you don't know how to work as a team player, our division quickly got rid of you through separation or transfer, and some of the personality with whom you work do not make "team work" easy.

    Cons

    Fluor pays near the top, but not at the top of major US EPC firms. Some of its technical experts are lifers who prefer to talk only with each other, sometimes at the expense of project operations. The Construction side out of Greenville and bean-counters in Sugar Land have sometimes had oversize influence on company performance and not in a good way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your rather talented HR staff; re-institute the Fluor Constructors HR folks onsite to ensure your employees are well cared for.

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is great. You get paid weekly. If you know someone you don't have to work hard and you get to sit on your butt.

    Cons

    I don't perform oral favors to keep a job..but if you do Congratulations you will have a job for years and years to come. Also you have to know someone to get on the job instead of actually proving yourself and working hard. Go figure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide who works hard and keep these workers around instead of people who constantly butt and don't have a clue as to what is going
     on.

    Pros

    Successful company with true commitment to both ethics and safety.

    Cons

    Fluor is a project-based company. Jobs last only until the project ends - often after only a few months or a couple of years. If there is not another job available on a different project, employees are put on LOA without pay. This results in employees leaving the company for other firms or taking jobs in hardship areas to stay employed.
