    Pros

    The company is constantly promoting from within, however you have to know the right people in order to get the opportunities.

    Cons

    The management does not embrace change specially using automation that could increase efficiency and decreased overall cost. They do not have standardized processes across their portfolios making it hard to see if their reports are accurate or if they have been modified.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to more people other than just your managers, some managers don't appreciate the fact automation can decrease the work load for your personnel. They don’t have to stay late in order to get all their work done if they are able to use tools designed to gather data and provide it into a report that provides information.

    Pros

    Good pay and a good chemical manufacturing company. Nice people great to work with makes work enjoyable. Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    No benefits for interns since interns are not on contract. It's an okay place if you are in IT. It being a chemical company the IT department is not given much attention. The company does not have much visibility.

    Pros

    Pay and good job security outlook.

    Cons

    Staffing is too lean and therefore, stressful. Do more with less people, unless you work at headquarters. Corporate policies/procedures not very balanced with what is needed at the production level. Safety is #1 but not listed in the job descriptions as #1 and goes from there. New CEO and his followers brought in over the past few years try to make this company just like the one they came from. Managers change every 2 years so there is no consistency

    Advice to Management

    Need to be less top heavy with staff on the global level. Not sure where their diversity talk is when they deal with staff at the production facilities level. If safety is #1 then every procedure and job description would start with safety.

    I worked at FMC

    Pros

    Loved the office that I worked at and the employees. If it wasn't for the owners and the upper management even thought about leaving the company.

    Cons

    Owners/Upper Management-poor overall. If it wasn't for the owners and the upper management even thought about leaving the company. Poor attitude, poor judgement.

    Advice to Management

    Quit

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. The company is doing well, so the risk of a layoff is low. They are active in their pursuit of ethical values. The tuition benefit has no limit, although it is taxed after the IRS limit. The company is also active in their pursuits.

    Cons

    They lack training in certain areas, like no one will give you formal training for the SAP system. It's all learn on the fly. If you have an issue, HR is not on your side, they clearly side with management. Two employees get retaliated against and fired, and the manager who was the harasser got off scot-free. Other than that, how you are treated and the opportunities you have all depend on the department you are in and who you work for. Some have it great and the sky is the limit for opportunities, others are not and filled with dead-end jobs. Not everyone has the opportunity to move up. Also, it is very dysfunctional, as different departments, divisions and subsidiaries function on their own and not in congruence with the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Train people better and offer them more opportunities to help the company. Listen and speak to them more. Be more proactive in using new technologies for the office staff and training people to get them up to speed. Teach them about all the other processes at the company, and make sure they feel connected to everything else that goes on. Also, come up with a better PTO system that is more fair to them employees.

    Cons

    Low focus in talent development, unclear or non-existent career plans
    High stress due to high expectations and under-performing lines

    Diversity should be fostered!
