    Pros

    Flex-Time, every other Friday off, great community relations program

    Cons

    Job Security is based on the current demand for primarily Oil & Gas, if demand goes down you might not have a project to work on....to me, that is kind of scary

    I have been working at Fluor full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fluor has provided a wide range of opportunities for me though out my career. For a large Fortune 500 company, Fluor has provided a flexible work-life balance environment and encourages personal growth. Any cons are outweighed by the pros.

    Cons

    Being a leader in our industry, Fluor takes on some of the biggest, most complexed projects in the world. If you are part of project execution, there are many challenging obstacles and the stress that is associated. However, I find myself never bored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent and do a better job retaining that talent.

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    Big projects. Nothing else but i must have twenty words here for acceptance.

    Cons

    Low salary. Low responsibility. No appreciation for people with strong experience AND strong educations. Intellect means nothing here. People in senior positions without basic understanding of finance, economic, and believe it or not, engineering. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire educated people AND keep them!

    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The best thing about working with Fluor is stability. I worked there for 14 years as a CONTRACTOR!

    Cons

    They used to have some perks available to contractors, but they quick that over 10 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back some perks for the Contractors. I used to love going to the July 4th celebration. You no longer invite the contractors who are a huge part of the success of the company.

    Current Employee - Engineering Technician I - Intern

    I have been working at Fluor as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    I have the best manager in the world. I should say it. He always give credits to my work. He neither keeps any restrictions nor force me to go in a particular direction.
    Good Pay.
    Endless Opportunities.
    Consider Interns for full time positions.

    Cons

    The background departments are really confusing. You need to contact at least 5 people if you had some issue regarding pay roll. etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be something like a Interns meet, so that they can share the knowledge they gained throughout the period.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    The ability to put 2 thru 10,000 professional individuals together, across the globe, who have never even met, and manage the construction of multi-million to multi-billion dollar construction projects.
    Sound business plan and governance.
    The opportunity for growth utilizing the many mentors available and the Fluor University online learning center.
    The ability to go to different projects and perform in different roles because of the way Fluor utilizes their Project Procedures Manual, PPM, the Project Execution Plan, PEP and the Site Quality Manual.
    Diversity and Inclusion.
    The ability to "cross train" into different areas of expertise.
    Excellent Management programs give provides excellent opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but if you choose to work "in the field," you will spend your career traveling, both domestic and abroad.
    As we like to call ourselves, the "Traveling Band of Gypsies."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget that the least significant job on a project means the world to the person performing that job. To both their self esteem and that of their family.
