    I worked at Fluor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a flexible schedule and have nice little office perks -- comped meals, bottled water in the kitchen, etc.

    Cons

    The corporate culture feels a lot like a high school; there is too much toxic, abusive behavior coming from middle management, to which upper management simply turns a blind eye. Mid-level managers are verbally abusive to employees and often text and email them outside of work hours to offer criticism. They micromanage, set people up to fail, and laugh about how they got people fired. Their behavior is far from professional and is damaging to the culture of what could be a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat good employees well. Say thank you. Reward good performance. Don't keep everyone in constant fear of losing their jobs. Be respectful and welcome new employees. When your employees do well, you do well, so don't make it impossible for them to thrive. And, some practical advice here, don't tell your employees to keep pushing their overtime hours to the next week. Compensate employees fairly for the work they do; aside from the fact that it's the law, it's just good business.

    Pros

    Very Large company to work for.
    Pay was average.

    Cons

    Seemingly "clique" type upper level management.
    Not very receptive to new to company personnel. High Horse types
    They do not attempt to place personnel upon project completion unless they are in the clique.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the dead branches at the top of the tree so the light can make it to the newer stronger branches below!
