    Plant Operator

    Plant Operator (Current Employee) Boulder, CO (US)

    ProsNot a lot to say, in the position I was in. The facility they do contract work for the other company , is a mess.

    ConsDon't know , where to start. Very mismanaged, never saw the supervisor, maybe once out of the six months I was there.

    Before, I took the job, they must have gone through well over 2 dozen people, and the contract company I worked for ,warned me about them. And they were right.

    I believe the good comments on this company in my position, probably are unionize people. This job wasn't. Not saying all unions are good, but in this case with this facility they out weight the mismanagement here.

    Co-workers were pretty much never happy , a lot of narrow mind Hecks that worked there. A lot of the senior workers, wanted to quit , but couldn't because , they were too old. So, you can get the picture here. The company theY do work for , couldn't careless about the facility and mostly like are just stringing it along unlit they close it in 5ys. They also, couldn't care less for the safety around there either. (Fluor was too busy blaming their workers not themselves, which is BS)

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to clean house with your management here & get rid of the Senior operators that don't want to be there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior Manager Information Technology

    Senior Manager Information Technology (Current Employee) Greenville, SC (US)

    ProsVery good salary and the employees around the globe were a pleasure to work with.

    ConsThere was too much politics that was factored into career progression especially in mid to senior management. Too many unqualified individuals ended up in management positions. A lot of these managers didn't understand how to lead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBusiness Line executive management needs to be flushed out and replaced with competent execs who care about their employees and the preserving the companies history and longevity rather than focusing on their own salaries and empires.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great career opportunities and great peers / management

    Construction Engineer (Current Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

    ProsHaving the ability to move between offices and business units and also job function (provided you have the skills needed)
    Being an EPC, ability to work on different major projects allows one the opportunity to learn quickly and advance career.
    Majority of senior management listen to their employees and genuinely care for them and their career path.
    Lots of interactive events and education programs available.
    Incredible amount of experience and knowledge available within the organization and shared between the 40+ offices using a knowledge share forum.
    There is always a drive by management for improvement within the Construction business line.
    Ethics in the workplace is highly valued.
    Time off with pay is very flexible and taking vacation or flex time is never an issue.

    ConsSalary is not industry leading or on the high end of the spectrum for EPCs, but there are a lot of factors such as great work environment, experienced peers and management which increases job satisfaction - something that you can't put a price on.

    While majority of facilities provided are nice, workstations in some places could use updating and a better layout is needed in some places (i.e. more offices) Occasionally there are managers / leads / directors sitting in cubicles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFurther invest not only in talent development, but also developing the company's ability to diverge into new markets and businesses. (via expanding overhead budget)
    Bonus structure should be implemented on a broader scale in order to stay competitive and attract talent - even if bonuses are minuscule to begin with.
