    Former Employee - DESIGNER III in Houston, TX

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Of all the companies I've worked for in Houston FMC Technologies is at the top of the list. Expect some reviews to be off putting. They recruit straight from the universities. The kids complain about not being managers fast enough. I came to FMC with 6yrs experience and let me say; the training, the team building, the charity events, the goal oriented views. All of these are gifts which most companies do not offer their employees.

    Cons

    Lack of product knowledge. We created designs without knowing what the system actually did!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing forward. And in meetings try to give the group as much info as possible

    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Houston, TX

    I worked at FMC Technologies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked as a Business Analyst while pursuing my MBA. I have an engineering degree and the company prefers to hire people with engineering background but I had classmates who did not have engineering background and were hired with the same benefits/salary as mine. My experience at FMC was like no other place!
    My boss and colleagues were an outstanding support. The team welcome me in a friendly manner and everyone was open to my recommendations.
    Work/Life balance was perfect!
    HR has been improving employees' benefits and perks (such as having a Starbucks with 50% discount in the offices, Gym for employees, etc) so it was a great place to work.
    The Cafeteria (Houston location) has a many options for lunch and is very affordable (the company subsidies it)

    Cons

    None. I personally love everything about this company.

    Pros

    good market position, most folks are nice.

    Cons

    So many there is not time.. But for a few. Management is disconnected, they move costs around the business to penalize some and benifit others ( ie: you will never get a bonus of anything remotely competative ) Its an old boy network with not the brightest rising to the top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over. - Live your core values just dont make print material

    Pros

    I work for FMC becasue the industry they are a part of and my education.

    Cons

    They are inconsistent and could care less about anything, even customers, but padding their bottom line (MONEY for Executives)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself and move onto to another industry like mortgage fraud or ponzi schemes.

    Former Employee - Corporate Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Corporate Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Progressive company with strong technical orientation. Compensation is average, promotions and benefits are ordinary. One of the few companies with a retirement program. Number one, for several years, in the Oil & Gas Service Industry

    Cons

    Although Technology is their strength, FMC needs to be more progressive in employee retention. Their core values are excellent, but enforcement of those core values are not always consistent. Leadership, within the company is excellent, but only in certain pockets of the organization. Promotions and advancement opportunities for certain ethnic groups are substandard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the pulse of the entire organization; not just certain segments. FMC Technologies has excellent potential; however, in order to achieve success, you must create a successful environment. All levels of management needs to be evaluated on the effectiveness of the so called "Core Values".
