Pros

Excellent training programs for young engineers. As an Engineer, you will never get fired. Great starting pay for first job after college with a good sign on and relocation bonus. FMC gives you the tools and connections to get a very well paying job after 3-4 years at FMC.

Cons

The better you are at your job, the more work you end up having to do. If you are too good at your job, they will never let you leave that position. 10% of the people do 90% of the work because there is no accountability. Don't think you can change it because there are too many people in front of you that will take your actions as a play for their job and they will hold you back. Non-existent bonus structure. (Unless you are management where there are 3 more levels of bonuses that no one talks about!) Company provided health insurance is a joke. Better to opt out of it and go on Obama care.

Advice to Management

Chlorine needs to be put into the management pool. People who were not good enough to be recruited by customers and competitors are now in management positions because they have been at FMC for so long.

    Pros

    They have a great interest in training incoming graduates into the Rotation Program which allows you to spend stints in a variety of groups to find out where you fit best. The culture in the office is laid back and everyone is easy to talk to. They do no pile on too much work on the rotational engineers, so you never feel as if you are being thrown into a fire and have to fight it on your own.

    Cons

    The benefits are lacking notably with healthcare. There are no options for 9/80 work week.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the employees to learn which benefits they would like because right now no one is happy with the high deductible. Offer flexible work weeks.

    Pros

    This firm is constantly growing and has a lot of huge opportunities ahead. They are expanding their service offerings and constantly depeloping cutting edge solutions for problems common to oil well completions.

    Cons

    The Energy industry will always have it's ups and downs. This firm is no different. While mitigating the ebb and flow of the industry, sometimes work is scarse and sometimes it is overly abundant.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more defined and streamlined career paths outlined. It would be nice to have a goal in sight and know what I need to work on to achieve that next step in my career.
