    I worked at Fluor as a contractor

    Pros

    Available training within company. Promotions possible. Travel available. Adequate and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Cliques can be roadblocks to personal growth and promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider yourself team members instead of disciplinarians and authoritarians. Upper management should be more aware of project managers' leadership styles on jobsites and do away with cliques, holier than thou attitudes, and tough guy mentalities. Fostering a team is much more valuable and fruitful than whipping the underlings. Fear of being judged harshly and reprimanded unjustly does not produce contented and dedicated employees. It was always very disappointing to witness a jobsite run according to these principles. With this being said, I must add that there are some very good managers with excellent skills, values and work ethics within the Fluor organization.

    Pros

    There is an incredible amount of freedom to work your specialty and contribute to teams that are focused on the customer's success.

    There are some sites where Fluor standards and values are not always conveyed effectively through local management.

    Consolidate and franchise every aspect of the Fluor experience t every site and help the teams develop and succeed. Never leave a site team without the proper supervision and leadership.

    Pros

    I really like Fluor because they are so much better than my first overseas contracting company KBR. As of now we can take leave every 45 days; We get Paid Per Diems; We get Excellent Bonuses; Excellent Travel Reimbursement; Single Room Occupancy when traveling in and out of Dubai. Most important they are a US based company that hires us as US employees unlike KBR. Also, they have sound management practices- Most important is their REAL commitment to SAFETY.

    Cons

    I have no challenges with Fluor, they are administering a tough contract in a hostile/warzone environment. Unfortunately this contract will be ending and/or changing-that's the name of the contracting business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do change your commitment to key Principles and Values and Excellence. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Pros

    This was a great first job out of college. They were able to provide good training and real life experience. The pay was very good for a first job.

    Cons

    The work comes and goes and when things are good they are very good and when they are bad you get laid off. You figure they pay you extra to compensate for the fact that they may get rid of you after your project is over.
