Avoid this company at all costs.

Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSalary 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.

ConsProcedures 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 Senior ManagementManage. Talk to staff... Listen.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company to work for.

Process Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
Camberley, England

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than a year

ProsLarge 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.

ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementTry to bring in fresh thoughts and break up the old-fashioned heirarchical functioning.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great Company to work for

Project Information Manager (Current Employee)
Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England

I have been working at Fluor full-time for less than a 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

keep off

Technical Translator (Former Employee)
Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England

I worked at Fluor

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove 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.
