    Pros

    FM is a very stable, very large company. They offer a lot of great big-company benefits - 401K match, pension plan, generous vacation time and other time off. There are many, many employees who have worked here for 25, 30, 40 or even longer - it's because this is a great place to work, with a lot of very decent people.

    Cons

    Year to year, raises are given, but they are never outrageous. This is not the place to work if you want to get rich quickly. Like many other large companies, there is a good bit of bureaucracy, and getting things done can sometimes take time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Most everyone I know who works here is happy and satisfied, and feels like they are contributing to the big picture.

    Pros

    Stable company; has an interesting niche in it's line of business.

    Cons

    Promotion and review process is an extremely subjective experience. If you like the security and steadiness of working for a State DMV then this is the place for you. Or if you are a younger worker, intend to stay for a short period of time then move on it's worth it.

    On the other hand if you are a senior level professional - and are looking to advance your career - and you are not offered a management spot - this is not the place to go to.

    By the way this review is based on the totality of time there. Circumstances did not allow me to leave earlier - once those changed I found other employment and left.

    One last note. While the business model of the company has stood the test of time - that is changing. Other larger competitors are starting to implement the same ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In no way intending to sound like sour grapes; management is insular and will not listen to communication going up the chain. Breaking that would be one large step.

    Pros

    If you are looking for IT experience , then FM Global is the place. In my position, I was given meaningful work and never had to grab anyone a coffee! Seriously though, my team and manager were very helpful and encouraging. The culture here is nothing I have seen. As everyone else has in their reviews, the food in the corporate cafe is great. Best job I have had so far.

    Cons

    Management loves Microsoft a little too much.
