Though there are advantages to working at a large company - salary and security are not two of them.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fluor full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are many location possibilities with the global reach of the company.

ConsWith the global reach, you have to be mobile to have any hope of security. If you have a family, this can be difficult because you will either have to relocate them (sometimes assistance is provided, depending on your level) or work away from your family.

Though there are often jobs posted on the internal brass ring, these jobs are generally already prepared for a particular person. Your work does not stand on it's own. Promotions only come from who you know.

Once you have entered this company, there is very little opportunity for a raise. You may get a new title, but do not expect the compensation to match.

Advice to Senior ManagementThough there have been attempts to become more interactive, quarterly webinars just don't allow the interaction that employees desire. Maybe it would be advantageous to poll your base and see if they have any ideas for changes that could benefit the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
