    I worked at FMC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The plant is big enought that you can get involved in a lot of different things, or you can focus in on one specific process. The initial training was very in depth and they made sure you were on the right track

    Cons

    It was a little isolated from the world, and pretty cold in the winter. That's forgivable though as your also close to the country.

    I worked at FMC

    Pros

    They pay good, most of the people were great to work with, casual work environment (yes, we could wear jeans to work).

    Cons

    Lean staffing, long hours and little recognition for your efforts. No consistency with policies, annual performance reviews a joke, a majority of managers didn't even bother doing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement consistent policies,ensure the performance evaluations are mandatory for all employees, weed out inept managers, investigate complains of unethical manager behavior.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at FMC

    Pros

    Opportunities for career advancement. The senior management teams enables you to learn new technologies and attend regular training. You are strongly encouraged to move beyond your scope of responsibilities and experiment with new technologies and process to achieve greater efficiencies for the organization. The culture is one of accountability and the senior leadership team gives you the latitude to achieve your professional aspirations.

    Cons

    The compensation is not typically in line with your roles and responsibilities. HR needs to do a better job of aligning with job market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Try and improve the feedback/recognition loop and investigate alternate methods for comparing compensation with industry peers.
