    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at FM Global full-time (More than 10 years)


    We've come through a few tough years which caused some of us to question and even sometimes have doubts about our company.

    The 2019 positive operating results were encouraging, lifted morale and dispelled those doubts.

    But the game-changer is the understanding and commitment from our CEO to all employees during the pandemic crisis. We haven't missed a beat thanks to our people and technology. While the lives and livelihoods of so many have been seriously impacted, the solidity of FM Global means we can remain strong for our families.


    None that would be meaningful in the context of what we're living through, and the great things our CEO and company are doing.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FM Global.


    I was approached by someone from their HR department at a university event. I then had 3 separate phone calls with this person before coming in for an in-person interview. During the first in-person interview I was shown a video and asked to write an essay describing what I saw. Later I was called back for another day of in-person interviews, 4 in total. Additionally I had to present to a board comprised of the various interviewers. In total it was 7 interviews, an essay, and a presentation for an undergraduate summer internship. This seemed like a ridiculously long and drawn out process to me.
