    Pros

    The ability to put 2 thru 10,000 professional individuals together, across the globe, who have never even met, and manage the construction of multi-million to multi-billion dollar construction projects.
    Sound business plan and governance.
    The opportunity for growth utilizing the many mentors available and the Fluor University online learning center.
    The ability to go to different projects and perform in different roles because of the way Fluor utilizes their Project Procedures Manual, PPM, the Project Execution Plan, PEP and the Site Quality Manual.
    Diversity and Inclusion.
    The ability to "cross train" into different areas of expertise.
    Excellent Management programs give provides excellent opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but if you choose to work "in the field," you will spend your career traveling, both domestic and abroad.
    As we like to call ourselves, the "Traveling Band of Gypsies."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget that the least significant job on a project means the world to the person performing that job. To both their self esteem and that of their family.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Ability to work on projects around the globe.

    Cons

    Need to be mobile to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance and a formal program for mobile employees outside of IT would help us to compete better when recruiting vs. our competition. Would also increase more women at Fluor.

    Pros

    Big projects. Nothing else but i must have twenty words here for acceptance.

    Cons

    Low salary. Low responsibility. No appreciation for people with strong experience AND strong educations. Intellect means nothing here. People in senior positions without basic understanding of finance, economic, and believe it or not, engineering. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire educated people AND keep them!

    Pros

    Great pay and leave given on the contract. Also the travel pay was outstanding which helped a lot considering where in the world we were working.

    Cons

    Some (not all of course) of the senior level management within my department were a pain to work with. I can give some leeway to long working days 7 days a week, but they're the guiding light and need to keep it in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to get the feedback from your employees on management.

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

    Pros

    Having 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.

    Cons

    Salary 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 ManagementAdvice

    Further 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.

    Pros

    Compensation , vacation time. Employees work together as a team. Takes pride in safety.

    Cons

    Management was not trained and those that have been at the company for years have to train new management on what to do. Inventory of supplies was limited or not available at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and not have employees with the potential to progress in the company train new hired upper management
