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

    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.
