Featured Review
"Fluor is fair"May 8, 2022

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Fluor full-time

Pros

good benefits, medical and dental plan fair compensation offered alumni opportunities

Cons

I dealt with a terrible manager, but that could happen anywhere

"Nice"May 19, 2022

Current Employee - Senior Architect

I have been working at Jacobs full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A good place to work .

Cons

Office facility manager fosters an environment of fear and distrust.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the facilities manager’s authoritarian behavior. If you want to foster an office culture and a welcoming environment for employees to return to work you can’t have her running around... making people feel unwelcome.
