    Pros

    Good people to work with, lots of positive reinforcement and the company values the workers there

    Cons

    The company's top leadership appears to want to position the company for a buyout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle is a better system than SAP and who ever set up the SAP system made some major inter company system errors.

    Pros

    The plant is big enought that you can get involved in a lot of different things, or you can focus in on one specific process. The initial training was very in depth and they made sure you were on the right track

    Cons

    It was a little isolated from the world, and pretty cold in the winter. That's forgivable though as your also close to the country.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at FMC

    Pros

    Opportunities for career advancement. The senior management teams enables you to learn new technologies and attend regular training. You are strongly encouraged to move beyond your scope of responsibilities and experiment with new technologies and process to achieve greater efficiencies for the organization. The culture is one of accountability and the senior leadership team gives you the latitude to achieve your professional aspirations.

    Cons

    The compensation is not typically in line with your roles and responsibilities. HR needs to do a better job of aligning with job market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Try and improve the feedback/recognition loop and investigate alternate methods for comparing compensation with industry peers.
