Pros

This is a great place to work if you are not hung up on benefits of the monetary type. There were cookouts that catered to employees various dietary needs, plenty of time off, a full array of benefits, and at least twice a year there were giveaways of clothing or personal items (with the company logo)

Cons

Spectra has a strong accountability to their stockholders, that being said, profits are not shared with the employees. There are certain departments that are favored in the company, so much so that it creates an environment of 'haves & have-nots'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create parity among the departments, structure every department the same way, make all information public, and have strong central leadership that diffuses any and all differences between different departments.

    Pros

    FMC is a good place to work because they don't fire employees very often unless you fire yourself. I have not seen any layoffs. They will try and find a place for you to work if your facility shuts down or you are hurt.

    Cons

    It seems as management does not recognize or care about the common worker. There is a lot of back biting and politicing in upper management. Everyone has too many jobs and not enough time to complete the work. It is very unorganized at the lower level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to evaluate my upper-management team to let them know how they are doing without the thought of backlash. Some areas of the company would run smoother if some managers were held accountable to their management capabilities.

    Pros

    FMCNA has good benefits and is a stable company. It is generally easy to get time off for family matters, even on short notice. In my area there is a lot going on, which is good. Adequate training and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Communications from senior IT management is poor to non-existant. There doesn't appear to be any avenues for advancement if you don't work in the corporate office. Money is spent on projects that are not fully thought through before implementation starts, thus costing much more money than necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A hard look needs to be taken in the IT organization, starting at the top. One of the most effective ways to keep morale high is good communications. Any communications would be a great start.
