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

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Because I am the "undesired" gender my pay lacked. Paid less than those I was supervising!

    Cons

    I was mommy tracked and treated HORRIBLY. I was almost fired for going to see my dying father - and only giving a weeks notice that I was making the trip. The issue was that I didn't ask for my internal client's permission - even though I was an exempt professional with over 6 months time off available. That's another thing, while the TOWP policy is good - don't dare try and use any of it.

    When I finally found my means of escape I was threatened with my job if I dare interview with anyone else and they find out. I had no contract. When I complained to HR they even admitted that "these guys need to learn we don't own people."

    Horrible horrible horrible abusive snide good ole boy company. AVOID!

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Perth, Western Australia (Australia)

    I worked at Fluor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    All the benefits to be expected with a Fortune 100 MNC around over 100 years: benefits, lateral moves, ability to shine in a niche

    Cons

    Too easy to be treated like a contractor, conflict of cultures between American headquarters and overseas post, lack of corporate oversight throughout roles and teams, no accountability for poor management and performance practices, too easy to specialize and loss ability for career placement due to over specialization (or when economy changes, you're culled from Fluor)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more career rotations to build rapport throughout organization, reduce conflicts of interest and improve career potentials, establish and follow multiple performance review system, encourage anonymous whistleblower program

    I have been working at Fluor full-time

    Pros

    Fluor provides exceptional training, cross-functional experience, diverse client portfolio, top class technical teams. Many Fluor employees have celebrated over 30 years of service to the company.

    Cons

    Fluor is a large organization, one of the largest EPCM companies in the world. With this, it is not as agile as some smaller competitors, and innovation and change can be harder to achieve.

    Pros

    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 ManagementAdvice

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