I worked at FMI Corporation full-time (Less than a year)
Beautiful Denver office environment and location, friendly and talented administrative team in Denver and Raleigh, sufficient new employee training, room and encouragement to expand responsibility and role. A variety of project management work (meeting/event planning, travel, project coordination, etc.) to basic administrative support. Management team exceptional to work for; professional. Small and personable office; quiet usually, unless they are hosting a fun in-house event. Overall, a quality place to work!
If I MUST offer Cons, they would be: Administrative staff complaints of communication struggles between office management and consultants. Favoritism and indirect communication. Administrative staff occupies small, open-style cubicles where little to no privacy. Admin staff required to rotate into receptionist duties.
Advice to Management
Create true administrator and project manager roles. Be competitive in the job market; continue to hire high quality, experienced professionals where they are compensated well for their contribution and experience, consider other methods of reward for admins; i.e., time off, bonus, stock, promotion, etc. Continue to find ways to promote and reward "we're all on the same team" mentality.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FMI Corporation.
On campus interview followed by a Superday. Great people, very friendly. A few brain teasers, a quantitative test and some financial/accounting questions. Met with an analyst on campus and several MDs at the office
