    I worked at Fluor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Variety of projects, people, diversity, opportunities.

    Cons

    Small progress on the corporate ladder outside of the US if you're not American.

    Advice to Management

    Try retaining talent people (and compensate them well) instead of bringing in North American expats on higher rates.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fluor have a 9 day fortnight (every other Friday off) which promotes excellent work/life balance. Pay is every 4 weeks (rather than once a month). Worldwide opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    A large company that deals with projects; so luck and timing play a large part of what opportunities and work you'll be involved with. Can lead to feeling a little stagnant at times. The design opportunities are a little limited due to most things being sub-contracted out or given to a vendor.

    Advice to Management

    Look to break the mould a bit; this is a company that is constantly pushing innovation, but it's work execution is based largely on a 1950s style engineering company. Promote a few of the younger generation up into senior Innovation positions, and you'll be generating far more ideas/approaches.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fluor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    9 day fortnight. There really is no other pro. Salary is average.

    Cons

    Expected to give your life to the company. Expected to be at your desk before 7:00 am, and not leave until after 7:00 pm. Managers are not trained. And nepotism is rife.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job and manage. Give employees some responsibility. Micro managing everything is not productive.

    I worked at Fluor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good.I think that's it. Benefits are poor. 9 day fortnight is supposed to make your work/life balance perfect... But Managers expect you to work off Fridays.

    Cons

    Procedures driven. Managers are largely absent, but expectation that you will give your life to the company. Expected to arrive before 7am, and not leave until gone 7pm. Only expected to put 40 hours on timecard. All staff deemed Lazy and incompetent unless you are a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Talk to staff... Listen.
