    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    As a chemical engineer, I feel like I utilized my degree much more than any other process engineering job I will ever have. Advice to recent college graduates: This is a great place to gain a great understanding of process design but it is important to develop other in demand skills outside of this industry. I recommend a part time law program or coding boot camp so that you will always have a hedge against this cyclical industry.

    Cons

    The skill set developed in the process engineering role holds no value to any other industry. As much as I enjoyed the work I did, petrochemical manufacturers would not consider me for an experienced or even entry level position despite having 4 years of process engineering design experience. Be careful not to stay here too long, I had recruiters literally tell me that my experience here is worthless to chemical manufacturing/operations roles. Department managers are dishonest about layoffs and the company did not offer any kind of severance support. I begged for a field assignment opportunity to gain exposure to different job roles, but those opportunities were very rare and reserved for highly experienced individuals (10-15+ years).

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    People are great, experienced. The ability to work in different projects and move if you like is nice as well. Office culture is laid back, flexible time, 9 80's schedule.

    Cons

    Veey cyclical with oil and gas. Processes aren't great. Management clueless in their function many times because they are in the wrong role. Lack of accountability because of too much change.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be stubborn, hold yourself accountable, saving a few hours in design has cost you way way more in construction mistakes.

    Pros

    Good employee benefits, including medical benefits as well as on-campus training and dining options.

    Cons

    Risk-adverse to a fault (and potential detriment of the customer). Creativity and brainstorming to find resolutions to problems is not always encouraged. "The old way" always seems to still prevail, but the times they are a-changin'.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the nepotism.

    I worked at Fluor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fluor offers very competitive salaries and bonus structure for senior managers

    Cons

    On the Facility Management side of the business you could very easily find yourself without a position if the client requests a change. Unfortunately Fluor does not have a wide spread presence in the area which could present other opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget your site managers and site personnel, frequently share mission, goals, relationship information with the various teams. Upper management communications with the teams is key to maintaining the company culture.
