    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fluor only works on big projects, so you may be working on very interesting, complicated projects that have a TIC in the billions. Their internal website/forum: KOL is very useful and used by many employees.

    Cons

    Smaller offices suffer from little training, people development than the large campuses like Greenville, Houston, Irving, etc...
    The smaller offices generally have weak management. It's not necessarily the managers' fault but most of the managers are just very senior engineers with little training or interest in leading their groups.

    Training opportunities at the smaller offices are few as you are usually always working 100% on projects. If you aren't on a job, you aren't considered profitable for the company.

    Health care premiums, are covered at a lower percentage versus other companies.

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

    Pros

    Fluor is a very big company but there are opportunities to make a career at Fluor for one willing to put in the extra effort. Good training, varied projects and assignments. Oversees assignments also available if you let it known you are interested. Benefits are good - especially the TOWP (time off with pay). Generous TOWP and you get to keep it and roll over each year whatever is not used.

    Cons

    Negatives are also a result of being big. You must network with lots of people and get to know the management. Volunteer for assignments, charity events, etc. Opportunities sometimes require one being in the right place at the right time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on mid level employees who have 10-20 years at Fluor. They still have plenty of time to contribute and know more about managing than the 5-10 year young employees who are being shoved through to management positions before they are ready.

    When my project started on the downsizing phase, I would have liked more transition support.

    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Global name brand upon which to grow the business. Many people in place that are poised to perform; all that is needed is some organized direction.

    Cons

    There is a desperate need for senior management having real experience. Many meetings, initiatives and plane flights with little substance of effective management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ASAP, acquire people to fill key positions whom have real experience, not just time in the industry spent watching others work. There is a desperate need for people who have the ability and willingness to 'get their hands dirty'.

    Pros

    Very large paycheck. If you love the military hierarchy, you will love this company!

    Cons

    Work/life balance? 12 hour days, seven days a week, 45 minutes to vet to work, 45 minutes to get back from work, no paid lunch = ~8 hours a day to shower, sleep, eat, anything else you need to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually stand up for your employees that come to you with issues
