    Pros

    Benefits. Casual Atmosphere. Travel. Potential for promotion.

    Cons

    Low Salary. Management lacks management process knowledge. Lack of training hinders employee development and company efficiency. Way to much paperwork at all levels slows productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees. Stop acting like you have all the answers, you don't, and your current position reflects that.

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great 401K structure and great HR

    Cons

    Horrible upper management that has an "Good ole boys" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify and become a solid company.

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of training. If you're new to the Oil & Gas industry, this is THE place to start. Lots of experienced engineers do not hesitate to train you and get you upto speed in a short amount of time. The database system; including SAP, part reports, teamcenter UG interface and overall Engineering infrastructure is one of the easiest to work with. When market share is in FMC's favor, workplace can be absolutely fun. You also have the freedom to travel to sites and learn as much as you desire. Also very customer oriented company.

    Cons

    Nepotism and cliquish behavior in certain departments (outside technical) that you'd rely on to get work done. Their managers too fall in the same category; if you dare say a word concerning that issue, you'd be seen as a trouble maker. Limited engineering resources in areas other than subsea. Surface tech could use a whole reboot with money and resources allocated to exceed in performance.

    Advice to Management

    Technical teams could argue that they could use more resources for newer innovation. Spend less times in meetings in which you talk about the next meetings so people can actually get their work done at 5 not at 8 pm. Avoid nepotism and hire people for their aptitudes related to the job or ability to learn rather than helping a "high school buddy" out with a job. There's nothing more infuriating than taking management advice from a product line manager who's a high school drop out. Gluck!

    I have been working at FMC Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company does a good job encouraging employee development and offering opportunities to move up in and around the company.

    Cons

    The company seems to be structured in a rather "shot gun" network where the hierarchy is nebulous, which makes it hard to navigate. Further, despite "collaboration" being a key value of the company's, this is discouraged both explicitly and implicitly. Overall, I have found the atmosphere unfriendly and unhelpful.

    Pros

    FMC made it a point to ensure I was happy in everything that I did. They gave me opportunities to explore my own career interests and utilize those new skills to assist the group.

    Cons

    Not many. Same as any other big company.

    Pros

    Good pay, decent perks, big company, but backwards and frustrating. Don't rock the boat or try too hard and you'll go far!

    Cons

    Management lacks any foresight, doesn't value employees or customers. High turnovef for a reason. Don't bother unless you are located at the business unit's main office.

    Advice to Management

    The "values" that you preach have to actually be more than lip service

    Pros

    I received most of all my Oil and Gas experience here and also all the right training to work in the oil and gas industry.

    It takes to long to move from one department to another.

    Need to help Internal people to move to better positions and not bring new people in that have not had the experience that a internal employee has.
