    Pros

    9/80 Schedule, Good Benefits, Flex Schedule.

    Cons

    Good old boys club. If you're a minority, and a woman in this company. Good luck to you. I was constantly harassed and my management didn't do anything about it and neither did HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to train and be a team player and HUMAN.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Located in California. The work environment is pleasant and clean. People are nice and friendly. I met the nicest people there.

    Cons

    Traditionalist old company, absolute resistance to changes. Very difficult IT environment to work. I met some of the most obnoxious, rude, and ill-suited IT managers that I have ever worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs a new attitude make over.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect and generally do not micro-manage you. If you are assigned to a project the pay scale is great.

    Cons

    If you are a local hire you don't get some wonderful perks like employees on job assignment do. Medical Benifits are very expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to be more Pro Active instead of Re Active. Upper Management demands results and does not question how production results are obtained untill an incident occurs.

    Former Employee - Employment Supervisor in Redwood Shores, CA
    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.
