    Pros

    the pay is great ,you will aquire raises offen if you show you're degree of skill is worthy of a raise ,and they are very efficient in thier,and they are diligent about training the youth

    Cons

    thier parking on lot on jobs ,is my biggest pet peeve ,i think they should organise better times crews come in so u dont have to fight traffic to get in and out of work

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is did they should research and check people's skill level before they dictate a wage for that person because there are a lot of people that have more skills but get paid less than others and are way better at production

    I worked at Fluor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits with respectable 401K match. Project assignments are very lucrative (i.e. assignment provisions, uplifts, overtime, etc) but touch on family.

    Cons

    Changing of the guard - the new HR leadership has little if any project experience. They are completely out of touch when it comes to how things work in the field - Resulting in bad advice and direction. They continue to promote inexperienced people to leadership roles solely based on likability versus knowledge and know-how. Nepotism runs high within FLR - which is a disadvantage to the average worker or someone applying for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    1. Treat every project as if it is lump sum. Too many missed opportunities to improve inefficiencies and missed lessons learned (for future projects)- could be a lot more efficient. Recommend implementing six sigma processes.

    2. There is no incentive to correct inefficiencies on cost plus or cost reimbursable project as FLR get paid to correct their own errors and mistakes. I have experienced "clerical errors" which negative impacted either a Client or an employee and had to be run through several department with several touch points to be resolved - billing the Client man-hours along the way.

    3. Fluor needs to be good stewards of the Client's money - Just because the "Client signed-off on it" doesn't mean it should have been presented. The Client is signing-off in good-faith as we are supposed to be the subject matter experts.

    4. FLR should abide by its own policy and/or Procedure Manuals - I had been assigned to several projects where we knowingly didn't follow policy or notify the Client which resulted in over billing (i.e. of assignment provisions, double dipping, manhours, etc). After raising these concerns to the Project Management and/or Corporate Leadership nothing was done.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary and transparent pay grade system.
    Interesting and challenging projects.
    Well structured work processes and set of business procedures and standards.
    Reputable company with a large number of employees and decent project backlog. Diversifies in many different business branches, therefore relatively stable workload.

    Cons

    Talent development and training opportunities underfunded.
    Salary and career opportunities not linked to performance assessment system or links are not really transparent. Low amount of capital and overhead accounts. High fluctuation of workforce, very quickly adapts to workload (hire and fire).

    Advice to Management

    Invest into talent development and training.
    Improve transparency and efficiency of personal assessment and provide more direct links to career opportunities.

    Take care of your people
