    I have been working at FM Global (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not the best pay however there are good benefits(401k-6%,pension plan, company car, decent vacation plan, ability to work from home)

    Cons

    Pay-Increasing the employees pay to at least industry average would be a good starting point. There is still a lot of politics in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Start to pay your field engineers what they are worth. You will be surprised how many will stay working in the field.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at FM Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of vacation time, shorter work day than most large insurance companies, stability, really hard to get fired

    Cons

    Management promoted based on tenure and not performance. Gossip and backstabbing encouraged. While some very nice people, other very mean spirited people who will throw you under to pass off their work. No upwards mobility. politics taken into consideration when applying to other positions more so than skills. It's all about who you know. Highly micromanaged and rigid practices.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like adults and not children. Focus on the work instead of babysitting and stop listening to the negativity and gossip.

    Pros

    The people who work at FM Global are great to work with!

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be a lot of cultural diversity. A lot of employees have been with the company forever and stay for 30+ years leaving not a lot of movement in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more women into more senior management roles

    I worked at FM Global full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed environment. Consistent work with usually a yearly bonus.

    Cons

    Raises are minimal. They have a rating system where the highest is basically unobtainable. Sometimes office politics are more important than actual work product.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and learn to trust them. Micromanagement doesn't always get the best work product.

    I worked at FM Global (Less than a year)

    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.
