Good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at FM Global

ProsGreat work / life balance, support and training. Company stability and fairly good pay are additional pluses.

ConsNot many opportunities to advance as many employees are quite loyal but understandably so, as it is a good place to work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Company loves mediocrity

account engineer (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at FM Global full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt easy work and u can never really get fired. Not much stress. Good training grounds.

ConsNot much room for advancement even if your aengineer. Once u get out of the field, and become account engineer, you hit a ceiling. Company also only pays a very small amount for additional education. Overall annual compensation and benefits are very very low compared to industry!! The long timers are the people who were usually the B and C students in school and accepted mediocrity. Company is all about seniority rather than performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees better so they don't leave. And don't make promotion based on seniority!! Pay bonuses and raises based on performance and not on seniority.

Great stable company

Consultant (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at FM Global full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFM is a great place to work with excellent benefits and a very laid back work environment.

ConsI left due to lack of advancement opportunities. It could take decades to get your bosses job.. They weren’t too interested in having me work in other parts of the organization without taking a step down in positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide opporunities to the employees that seek them or they will leave.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

A good place to build your career but not fulfilling long term.

Senior Consultant Engineer (Former Employee)
Park Ridge, IL

I worked at FM Global full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood benefits, good work/life balance, great experience earning opportunity.

ConsCareer development opportunity, pay, raise/compensation structure doesn't promote hard work, lack of recognition for good work, not rewarding.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the structure and way that you evaluate employees. Better rewards for employees who perform well will raise the level of all field staff. Also, this will give a better sense of who your best options are for promotion. Currently, management doesn't do the best job of promoting the best talent - in part because of the system in place.
