I have been working at Fluor full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Large company, strong emphasis on procedures and practices, if you are in the right network, it can be very lucrative.

Cons

Extremely old school, run by people who grew up in 1950's and still think computers are the root cause of many inefficiencies.
One example is that they still block you from accessing gmail from work. Which is in fact counter productive. Coz almost everyone now has smart phones so people use their mobile devices to surf, which actually takes longer, so if the management was smarter then would actually modify the IT policies.
Also, there is no importance on real tech advancement, they tried developing an inhouse social network, to keep people engaged, but the systems are so antiquated that everything runs at a glacial pace.
Fluor was one of the biggest companies lobbying to Microsoft to keep XP alive, even after Microsoft stopped support.

Advice to Management

Need to make relevant changes, just getting an inhouse social network doesnt make Fluor cool, you need to change at a much deeper level.

    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 Management

    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'.
