​​​​Ayse's Story​​

​​I started at FMC Technologies in Kongsberg, Norway as an engineering trainee in 2006 after graduating from Buskerud University with a degree in Systems Engineering. FMC’s one-year training program gave me the opportunity to work in three different engineering departments. I gained experience in template/manifold systems, completion/workover systems and control systems. Working in each of these departments made it possible for me to create a personal network within FMC. My training also helped me choose the type of position I wanted to work in. Now, as a project engineer in the Controls Department, I am working in instrumentation and topside electronics on a lot of projects. My position is very challenging, with many growth possibilities. Every day I learn something new.


​​​​Derrick's Story​​

​​I began my career at FMC as a temporary employee working in the hi-bay and low-bay in 1997 and joined the company as a permanent employee in 2000 as the Service department’s first jumper, manifold and pipeline end termination (PLET) lead technician. Since then, I have worked on well over 30 completions in the Gulf of Mexico, and regularly travel overseas executing completions as a senior lead technician. I have been to Africa and I am currently working on a final completion in Trinidad. When that is finished, I’ll head to Brazil. I am proof that at FMC, if one is determined and willing to put forth the effort to be the best in what they do—whether in the office or in the field—the sky is the limit.


​​​​Jose's Story​​

FMC is a company with great career opportunities, and my personal experience is an example of that. I came to FMC as a mechanical engineering intern at the Venezuela plant, and after college, I joined the company as a Quality Assurance Manager. Later, I received a scholarship from the Venezuelan government to study in the U.S. where I earned a Master’s in manufacturing engineering and an MBA. After graduation, I re-joined FMC in Houston as a financial analyst. From there, I worked as manager of the subsea manufacturing shop; project manager for Mobil, Shell and BP Thunderhorse projects; Subsea materials manager; and SAP implementation manager. By moving through these different areas, I learned how different disciplines interact and affect each other within the company, and I pinpointed where I wanted my career to go. Today, I am manager of Subsea products and projects for the Asia Pacific region in Singapore, another great opportunity and learning experience by living and learning to do business in a different culture.

​​​​Randy's Story​​

FMC has provided me with a lot of opportunities over the course of my career. I started with the company in 1980 in Iowa and transferred to Houston a year later to work as a drafter and designer in research and development. For the next eight years, I went to night school to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, which was paid for by FMC. But even before I finished school, I started functioning in an engineering role. Just after I graduated, I moved to Brazil as a technical liaison with our facility in Rio de Janeiro, and I worked in various engineering management roles before assuming my current job as manager of Engineering and Technology. Within the engineering group at FMC, there are so many paths you can take—R&D, product applications, project engineering and engineering management, and over the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to do all those things.

    I have been working at FMC Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)


    Mammoth company so it offers the opportunity to work in multiple divisions / locations. Senior level management seems creative and ambitious and moving in a good direction. They are developing business strategies that encourage multiple departments to work together. Key employees are treated great. The people I work with are great, the management people here are still sometimes capable of making decisions based on human decency as opposed to strictly numbers. All in all a decent place to work, though I have colleagues who feel differently.


    Local management doesn't seem to have a real connection or commitment to the company as if a day of work is to wait for the timer to run out. They can be very unproductive. It affects everyone. There is no clearly established plan or organization in anything. Policies are also unclear until one is violated. The career path is a long road with heavy competition.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the field and personally evaluate the field workers. I think you would be surprised at who you see as a valuable employee compared to what you currently believe. Start an plan to get organized and quantify the repetitive processes that we do everyday. It only needs to be done one time then can be refined over time.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FMC Technologies.


    First interview was great. The guy who was to be my supervisor was happy with my credentials and my safety mind set. However upon my Second interview the Safety Director seemed to be more concerned with whatever she was doing on her phone than to listen to what I was saying.
