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

    Pros

    decent pay and alternate Friday's off

    Cons

    bloated management of buddies who take care of each other
    every year or two the company changes structure of business lines for no real reason and it makes me wonder if they're hiding poor performance or other issues
    horrible insurance and other "benefits"

    Advice to Management

    it's amazing how few leaders are technology aware. if they could, they'd still run the business with rotary phones and typewriters. the frat boy mentality of these overpaid loafers needs to end if this company wants to survive and be profitable.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, 401k match, work life balance can be ok if you force it

    Cons

    Poor management with no vision, aging workforce, only most senior executives get meaningful incentive compensation, good-ole-boy crony network is very strong

    Advice to Management

    Quite protecting and promoting sycophants, actually adhere to the "OneFluor" ideals you state

    Pros

    It's a job that's pays.

    Cons

    You get paid once a week and taxes are a little short at the end of the year. No pay raises at this site in over 5 years and the site manager is worried about his bonus

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

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Above market average. Nice campus and awesome coworkers who work together to handle enormous workloads while being understaffed.

    Cons

    Company current culture is profit over people. The current executives have created an environment where you are simply a number to be discarded in favor of shipping work overseas and increasing their own profits at the expense of employees and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about your people AND your clients instead of trying to trick them into paying more for less....before you run this once great company into the ground.

    Pros

    Ability to travel and network

    Cons

    It seems management is more concerned with frequent flyer miles and perks than they are with results.

    Advice to Management

    How much money did you spend this year to rent condos and attend the Masters? Why not use that money for employees instead of bar tabs and gold clubs.

    Pros

    Competitors seek talent from Fluor because they know how poorly they treat people, so there is life after Fluor.
    It's easy to shine since they are so behind the times.

    Cons

    A level of undeserved arrogance in so many long time employees who cover each others backs and cash checks with out delivering any value or results.
    Worst health insurance I've ever seen.
    Good talent is let go while the buddy system keeps the 30 year employees around even though they can't open a laptop without instructions.

    Advice to Management

    The Taj Mahal in Dallas has no clue. While traveling unnecessarily around the globe, take a few notes and make the right changes.
