    I have been working at Fluor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management shares information on personnel esp on the staff side. Supports job movement. Company has high ethical standards. Key to success is to have a broad network to be able to move from project to project. Benefits are better than most competing company's.

    Cons

    HR processes and systems do not support employee recruitment or staffing of internal transfers. Project work can get very embroiled in office politics and mangers will stop project transfers regardless of employee desires. Employee development can suffer while on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Provide stronger HR systems to allow employees to stay with the company (transfer to other projects) rather than leave for external positions.

    Pros

    Great 401k match, good employees, nice location

    Cons

    HolIday/vacation/sick/greivance/ time. All is combined to bank time and the company is pretty stingy with employees acrual per pay period. Unstable work load and future, Not long after hiring on the company started off-shoring work. I think this hasn't set well with some clients and certainly not with employees. They're having a hard time winning contracts now.

    Advice to Management

    People are what make a company. Good experienced talent will be hard to keep and win back after they've been layed off if the employee feels maginalized by business decisions to keep a few bucks at the employee's expense.

    Pros

    Great facilities, networking groups, mentoring circles, numerous events, etc when economy is good. "OneFluor" is a great initiative if implemented properly.

    Cons

    Easy to become "just a number" here.

    "OneFluor" is all talk and no action. Engineering disciplines don't communicate on projects. Sales department can't win lump-sum projects because the "good old boy" system of management costs the company too much money.

    The company lays off productive employees to keep senior department leads happy by keeping around their relatives and yes-men. Department rankings work the same way.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure supervisors have some understanding of labor laws before promoting them. Promote people based on productivity instead of who their friends are. Make tougher budgeting decisions by forcing retirement and promoting from within.
