    Has to find a better balance between the people aspect and the accountability aspect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep putting the right people in key jobs....don't allow old school thinking or over-collaboration rule the day

    Pros

    Training. Teambuilding. Office facility. Travel. Good benefits & base compensation.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Disfunctional organizational structure. Compartmentalized groups. Only those who are willing to sacrafice family and home life can achieve here. High turnover. Very small bonus plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say. Empty words fill up volumes of literature to market core values and it is all just fluff. There is barely any kindness or human side here...only a machine made to achieve 15% growth for the shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes management does not always "walk the "walk. I can't stand dishonest upper level management -- not trying to generalize, but there are a few bad apples.

    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Market leading company in a growing area within the oil and gas/ energy industry. There are a lot of opportunities for those who know how to navigate the decision- making process. Best 401K program I've ever seen.

    Cons

    Innovation in technology is clear, but other functions clearly struggle with latent improvements and processes. HR, IT, Legal, Marketing, and Finance all need radical overhauls if the company is going to compete. Businesses are siloed and allowed to operate independently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make difficult management decisions and demand changes from employees. This company could take over if everyone worked together. Invest in the non- obvious - outsource IT, improve HR, and require all employees in Marketing meet basic skill sets in today's environment.

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time

    Pros

    No PROS anymore!!! I was so loyal I made myself ill over working hour after hours for them with no OT…. they do not care about the employee's!

    Cons

    Do not care about their employee's … do not know how to communicate with the employee's ! Promote only those with degree's that don't know anything but to say they have a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET RID OF AON HEWITT! GET people in HR that communicate with your employee's and try to help them rather than destroy them.
