    Pros

    Great people to work with. The work life balance is good and the job is pretty interesting. Big company so more opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better. Other than pay not much negative things to say about the company. Overall good company to start at but lower pay for consultant.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay for consultants to keep good workers. Many people shuffle around to other companies even though they enjoy time at FM.

    I have been working at FM Global full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance for the first few years. Work from home or travel (0-10 nights a month). Kinda like the show "how stuff works", as you get to inspect a bunch of businesses. FM attracts established career oriented people, as well as mousy analytical types. People keep to themselves in a quiet office atmosphere. Most office talk is about the job or sports.

    Cons

    This is a large and old company, this is no start-up. Be prepared to navigate detailed bureaucratic processes.

    Pros

    Well defined process allows for great internship learning. Very hands on and active work. Very talented development team with aggressive goals that really pushes you to become better. Great pay as an intern. The Johnston office has a ridiculously nice cafeteria.

    Cons

    This place is stuffy; if you're young it is not the place for you. The pay is sub-par because the of the location.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen your tie!

    Pros

    You don't have to work that hard. Easy to stand out if you're somewhat exceptional.

    Cons

    No management candor. Low upward mobility. Drives me crazy - we are all the same side.
