    Pros

    The pay is decent could be more. Management in Houston is very good. Great 401 K and benefits.

    Cons

    Base managers all over the country especially in Homer City Pa/ Waynesburg are absolutely terrible. Appalachian region management is bottom of the barrel.

    Get new management in Pennsylvania

    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.

    Pros

    You will have access to classes and training to advance and grow

    Cons

    Very narrow minded, quick to pass judgment because of knee jerk reactions instead of finding out the true facts first

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of your great talent will not be found from college graduates, stop and recognize you can’t always substitute experience and knowledge for a degree.

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

    Pros

    FMC will support their employees with EVERY tool in the toolbox. Whether you're working on a major project or maintaining an existing project, they are one-in-the-same. I've always had the support of my manager with any business or technical issue that arised with the customer.

    Cons

    I was the ONLY on staff person with the customer. I needed to be firm in my understanding of business procedures and protocols with the customer, yet diplomatic. Being physically separated from FMC offices, you ARE FMC'S representative. Imagine a customer walking into Kentucky Fried Chicken and demanding you serve him/her a Big Mac.

    Pros

    They have excellent benefits, 9% 401k match, good vacation.

    Cons

    FMC was a great place to give my career a boost, the only problem was getting to the next level. I'm not dumb, everywhere is a good ol boys club and evening knowing the good ol boys at FMC apparently doesn't do any good. If you want to do well at FMC you will get into the Subsea business and get to know the right people. HR is a complete joke, as mentioned in other reviews, so don't bother with them. Corporate is a no-mans land and you will never get out, so only go there knowing that. The bonus for lower level employees is awful, almost non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm still a shareholder, so keep underpaying people and making big oil pay top dollar for your stuff!

    If you can kiss up to your boss, you can come and go as you please.

    The good ole boys club needs to go.

    Pros

    Still reasonable work and life balance, reasonable salary range. It has a good name.

    Cons

    This company is quickly going down hill. I regret slightly for joining this company. It does not have the same benefit as it use to have. Turn-over rate will continue to go up. Depends on the department, you will either be over worked with high stresses or bored out of your mind. Lost days of vacation time, education benefits, and more when I switched over. I am not sure if FMC even try to retain their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management suppose to take stress away from your employees, NOT adding on to them. The pointing figure game is still going. Ever wonder why your people are leaving?
