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

    Pros

    Stick with the company and see where they take you! There's so much work all over the world -- if you define yourself as a hard-working valuable team member, they will help you move to advance your career.

    Cons

    The unfortunate "buddy" system is evident as with many corporate organizations. If you know the right people, you will go even further. So, play the game and make friends with everyone you meet.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job, keep it up. Embrace change and the future will be even brighter.

    I worked at Fluor as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I received guidance and instruction whenever I needed it and everyone was very friendly. The managers all have an open-door policy so if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns they are happy to help.

    Cons

    One of the cons about Fluor is that you get paid for 40 hours a week even if you work more. This wasn't that big of a deal but it was frustrating at times.

    Individuals can make a fairly good living. Though their pay lags to its competitors.

    Take care of your people

    I worked at Fluor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a chemical engineer, I feel like I utilized my degree much more than any other process engineering job I will ever have. Advice to recent college graduates: This is a great place to gain a great understanding of process design but it is important to develop other in demand skills outside of this industry. I recommend a part time law program or coding boot camp so that you will always have a hedge against this cyclical industry.

    Cons

    The skill set developed in the process engineering role holds no value to any other industry. As much as I enjoyed the work I did, petrochemical manufacturers would not consider me for an experienced or even entry level position despite having 4 years of process engineering design experience. Be careful not to stay here too long, I had recruiters literally tell me that my experience here is worthless to chemical manufacturing/operations roles. Department managers are dishonest about layoffs and the company did not offer any kind of severance support. I begged for a field assignment opportunity to gain exposure to different job roles, but those opportunities were very rare and reserved for highly experienced individuals (10-15+ years).

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    People are great, experienced. The ability to work in different projects and move if you like is nice as well. Office culture is laid back, flexible time, 9 80's schedule.

    Cons

    Veey cyclical with oil and gas. Processes aren't great. Management clueless in their function many times because they are in the wrong role. Lack of accountability because of too much change.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be stubborn, hold yourself accountable, saving a few hours in design has cost you way way more in construction mistakes.
