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

    Pros

    They love technology so always searching for effective ways to use tech. Great benefits and good environment

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the shuffle at such a big company, so really need to have a good manager to grow as an employee

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees as people rather than just resources.

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

    Pros

    Designers and Engineers great to work with. Has good benefits including getting paid for every hour worked beyond 40 hours....but paid less for each hour worked less than 40 hours. People are usually always eager to help.

    Cons

    Management (not including department managers, no complaints there) disconnected with how projects are executed. Many of the decision made by management don't make sense at the engineering level. If you want to go into management, drink the cool-aid or you're out.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the cool-aid and accept that you can be wrong. However Fluor is still a good place to work.

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

    Pros

    Starting pay is good,

    Cons

    Promotions are rare and employees are viewed as disposable after a project is completed.

    Management never asks employees advice or opinions on anything from my experience.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to travel and grow your career if you are flexible.

    Cons

    Had to leave the company five times when business got slow. Not much loyalty to the staff anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your veterans with experience. Not everyone wants to leave at 65. Not much incentive to stay.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time

    Pros

    Work in Afghanistan. Pay is okay. Not many other pros.

    Cons

    Fluor has fallen by the wayside in their treatment of employees. It's a bureaucratic mess and they can't get out of their own way. Management is incompetent and promotions are heavily biased because of favoritism and a 'yes man' mentality.

    Pros

    Travel opportunities state side and abroad, pay, training,
