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

    Pros

    Compensation , vacation time. Employees work together as a team. Takes pride in safety.

    Cons

    Management was not trained and those that have been at the company for years have to train new management on what to do. Inventory of supplies was limited or not available at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and not have employees with the potential to progress in the company train new hired upper management

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not a lot to say, in the position I was in. The facility they do contract work for the other company , is a mess.

    Cons

    Don't know , where to start. Very mismanaged, never saw the supervisor, maybe once out of the six months I was there.

    Before, I took the job, they must have gone through well over 2 dozen people, and the contract company I worked for ,warned me about them. And they were right.

    I believe the good comments on this company in my position, probably are unionize people. This job wasn't. Not saying all unions are good, but in this case with this facility they out weight the mismanagement here.

    Co-workers were pretty much never happy , a lot of narrow mind Hecks that worked there. A lot of the senior workers, wanted to quit , but couldn't because , they were too old. So, you can get the picture here. The company theY do work for , couldn't careless about the facility and mostly like are just stringing it along unlit they close it in 5ys. They also, couldn't care less for the safety around there either. (Fluor was too busy blaming their workers not themselves, which is BS)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to clean house with your management here & get rid of the Senior operators that don't want to be there.

    Pros

    Very good salary and the employees around the globe were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    There was too much politics that was factored into career progression especially in mid to senior management. Too many unqualified individuals ended up in management positions. A lot of these managers didn't understand how to lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business Line executive management needs to be flushed out and replaced with competent execs who care about their employees and the preserving the companies history and longevity rather than focusing on their own salaries and empires.

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

    Pros

    The salary and benefits were excellent.

    Cons

    The people were very much set in their own cliches. And it took time for people to work their ways into their decided circle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more attendtive to employees when they are struggling and begging for help.

    Pros

    They have incorporated great training program until they cut the budget. They do promote young professionals.

    Cons

    The management style needs tons of improvement, and they are way top heavy on officers in the Houston office.

    Management tends to forget where they came from and instead act as if they 'have arrived'. They quickly lose sight of important things in company progress like accountability, integrity, value, etc.

    They have programs for advancing the young professionals; however, much of their advancement, in a timely manner, is based on who they have as a mentor; and most of the time, that can be to the young professionals detriment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees do a 360 on management.

    Huge company, so you must put forth major effort to gain exposure and access to opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to groom the future leaders to prepare the company for all the boomers retiring which we are already seeing.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, always chaning directions for the betterment of the organization. Great benifits, off every other Friday, accumulated TOWP at a very fair rate, flexible with shcedules to meet the needs of employees and home life.

    Cons

    Lacking in communication effecting employees, too many click groups instead of team players. Growth depending on the department you work in. Stacking of team based on personal relationships instead of skill set and professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see management choose their leaders using a different criteria. Too many leaders say the right thing to their managers and do not follow through to the team. Would like to see upper management visit each department and get a true working knowledge of our daily activities.
