    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It has plenty of project work.

    Cons

    My experience was that the current global procurement organizaton was promoting individuals based on their ethnicity. I can say it because I am of Asian descent. My husband was caucasian so he was told by his supervisor he did not the certain ethinic that the company was currently looking for. Also it seemed it was easier for a women to get accepted in the Global Business Leadership Team than a man. Again this was my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO needs to be inform of this.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    R&R bonuses and duration.
    Nothing else.

    Please note this applies only on Afghanistan section and not the Fluor in general.

    Cons

    Bad management who came on the position through "whom do you know rather than how qualified are you" method.
    Poor organization in general, lack of business support on the FOBs, poor training and development, poor safety culture and standards.
    No advancement opportunities... for OCNs especially.
    OCNs in general have less rights than expats: no cellphone, no computer, no gym, 3 times lower salary, general discrimination by management, etc.
    But most important... extremely low recruiting standards!
    Here's my experience: My recruiter on the interview asked me only two questions: "How was your trip?" and "Do you have any questions?". There were people who did not understood a simplest sentence in English and they were still hired! Only one guy who did not understood the question: "When were you born?" was rejected (1 out of 30). Also people who lied everything but their name in the resume were hired! How can former manual laborer with no English skills whatsoever and no work experience with computers can be hired as a Senior MCS?
    Recruiters hired low quality workforce for high demanding positions and that caused majority of the problems.
    The "open door" policy here means if you don't like it the doors are always open for you to leave!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign and take your recruiters with you. That's where all your problem started!
