    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England

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

    Pros

    Salary is good.I think that's it. Benefits are poor. 9 day fortnight is supposed to make your work/life balance perfect... But Managers expect you to work off Fridays.

    Cons

    Procedures driven. Managers are largely absent, but expectation that you will give your life to the company. Expected to arrive before 7am, and not leave until gone 7pm. Only expected to put 40 hours on timecard. All staff deemed Lazy and incompetent unless you are a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage. Talk to staff... Listen.

    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    What can I say, I really cannot think of anything good to say about this company at all. It was conveniently located close to my home so I was able to walk to work

    Cons

    Absence of communication from senior management. Company has appointed US expats to senior management positions with no concept of UK employment legislation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open and honest with employees.

    Former Employee - Process Engineering Manager in Camberley, England
    Former Employee - Process Engineering Manager in Camberley, England

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

    Pros

    Large and high calibre peer group. Provides access to a great amount of technical standards and guidelines. Technical support from various centres the world over is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Some of the senior staff are well-entrenched for years and seem to view new staff as threats. Group meetings of project staff are rarely held. Project work force tends to be too large and unwieldy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to bring in fresh thoughts and break up the old-fashioned heirarchical functioning.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Very process driven organisation - but thats not a bad thing in this case
     - Fairly flat management structure
     - A high focus on technical competence on employees and delivering that to clients

    Cons

    - Limit to how far/quickly you can grow if you are not an engineer
     - You may be stuck with a duff project and not be able to move on until the project is over, or you leave the company

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    Just salary, they really pay good rate for staff and contractors

    Cons

    For money you are paid they expect you to be below low profile and never show your abilities, experience of ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve control for Section heads, check up on people's personal profiles, you will find something really new about what is going on inside of your departments.

    Pros

    Friendly place to work. Colleagues are all ways helpfull and willing to share knowledge.

    Cons

    Over worked with little recognition for extra effort made to cope with tight proejct dealines. Poor to nonexistent communication from senior management since the company is growing far too fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication to your staff is vital for employee moral to to prevent alienation. Greater reward should be made to employees going the extra mile.

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

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect and generally do not micro-manage you. If you are assigned to a project the pay scale is great.

    Cons

    If you are a local hire you don't get some wonderful perks like employees on job assignment do. Medical Benifits are very expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to be more Pro Active instead of Re Active. Upper Management demands results and does not question how production results are obtained untill an incident occurs.
