    Pros

    Really great benefits, good work life benefit, and you work with great people

    Cons

    It’s hard to understand why non management benefits are only evaluated once a year. If you want to go into management the company does a really good job providing opportunity for growth and salary development, but in my experience does a poor job of fairly compensating and developing non-management positions.

    Advice to Management

    People in management have little incentive for the long term delevlopment of the operations. They meet their objectives for a 3-5 year period and get promoted on. Take better care of the front line employees that are leaned on for the actual results. The fact that merit increases are only provided once a year while management level promotions are handed out year round (understandable and nit being critical of this) seems very one sided. In my 10 years with this company I’ve seen decisions and advancement take place more at the top level, while the employees who’s work processes have seen the biggest impact seem to have very little input in the process. This is having an impact on moral.

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits. That's about all I can say

    Cons

    If anyone thinks FM Global is a good place to work they are either in denial or just naïve. People stay here because of the benefits. Period. The salaries are too low, management does a poor job of communicating change, promotions and hiring are based on family or friends and not on actual qualifications or work. Promotions are based more on time in the position, rather than the work produced. If someone is doing the work of a senior person, they should be promoted no matter how long they have been in the position. I also find it very difficult to find another opportunity in the company even willing to relocate. In a company this large, they should consider internal candidates more often when filling open positions.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATE CHANGE better. Promote people instead of going outside the company. Pay higher salaries!
