    Cons

    Good old boys club. If you're a minority, and a woman in this company. Good luck to you. I was constantly harassed and my management didn't do anything about it and neither did HR.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to train and be a team player and HUMAN.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Located in California. The work environment is pleasant and clean. People are nice and friendly. I met the nicest people there.

    Cons

    Traditionalist old company, absolute resistance to changes. Very difficult IT environment to work. I met some of the most obnoxious, rude, and ill-suited IT managers that I have ever worked with.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a new attitude make over.

    Pros

    Travel and money if you produce (or kiss butt of non producing old dogs).

    Cons

    Too much dead wood from CEO to all offices living off 35 years at company despite the fact they can't open PowerPoint.

    Advice to Management

    Fire CEO and 80% of the old dogs. You've lost too Uchenna young talent due to your arrogance and entitlement views the past 3 years.

    Pros

    Big projects. Nothing else but i must have twenty words here for acceptance.

    Cons

    Low salary. Low responsibility. No appreciation for people with strong experience AND strong educations. Intellect means nothing here. People in senior positions without basic understanding of finance, economic, and believe it or not, engineering. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Hire educated people AND keep them!

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

    Pros

    Large company, strong emphasis on procedures and practices, if you are in the right network, it can be very lucrative.

    Cons

    Extremely old school, run by people who grew up in 1950's and still think computers are the root cause of many inefficiencies.
    One example is that they still block you from accessing gmail from work. Which is in fact counter productive. Coz almost everyone now has smart phones so people use their mobile devices to surf, which actually takes longer, so if the management was smarter then would actually modify the IT policies.
    Also, there is no importance on real tech advancement, they tried developing an inhouse social network, to keep people engaged, but the systems are so antiquated that everything runs at a glacial pace.
    Fluor was one of the biggest companies lobbying to Microsoft to keep XP alive, even after Microsoft stopped support.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make relevant changes, just getting an inhouse social network doesnt make Fluor cool, you need to change at a much deeper level.
