    The Best Company I Have Worked For Throughout My Career, So Far

    Apr 8, 2022 - Consultant Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Note: Recent graduates and prospective employees should be aware that, just like every company and human being, FM Global has been coping with the impacts of the Coronavirus as best as they can. Every company I have reviewed has had a dip in ratings in the last two years. The stress is pervasive. This company is a fantastic place to start your career and retire with too, as the retirement benefits are head and shoulders above consulting firm standards. Just some of the pros: -Likeminded, good faith colleagues. -Unrivaled training and a wealth of information spanning more than a century to absorb, if you commit yourself to it. (Hint commit yourself to it and you won’t regret it). -Insurance industry is stable and recession resilient. FM Global is doubly as resilient. -You will travel, and be wined and dined like no engineer in your graduating class. -A good faith approach to business that asks for a high level of commitment in delivering a high standard of work (If you are the kind of person that doesn't floss every night you probably won't want to work here) -A great starting salary that doesn’t keep up with the competition over time but pre-COVID was more than compensated for with lower workloads and substantially more engineering training and support.

    Cons

    You've seen all the cons in the other reviews. Sadly they are all currently true, to varying degrees. But this is just a snapshot in time. The company will recover, it's been through worse, and there is no other company to my knowledge that will invest in you and develop you as thoroughly and extensively as this company will, at their own expense. If you value a good faith investment without strings, this company is for you. Four years ago my rating would have been 4.5/5. Four years from now I would bet money it will again be 4.5/5.

    Can't wait to leave

    Jul 22, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits, pay is okay, nothing really else

    Cons

    Work/life balance has gotten worse and worse over the last couple years. Working from home means more access to their employees at anytime during the day. Respect for working hours is diminishing. All while the company "promotes" taking mental health days and "advocates" for your overall well-being. We're encouraged to take off, but that means coming back to an even heavier workload. You can never get a straight answer from upper management. It's always "it depends," "this is tentative to change," etc. Things change daily and new systems are contantly added to make things more effecient, but ends up doing the opposite and is just additional work. Work has never been so inefficient, cumbersome, and with little training. Many employees quit without the company adding any new hires for certain positions until there's a clear training in place. Meanwhile exisiting employees are expected to pick up the extra work and still meet objectives. Many internal employees that I spoke to feel the same, yet all we here is how great everything is working. It's beyond frustrating and unmotivating.

    Pros

    Benefits are the reason for me staying

    Cons

    Career development is not available for all. Lack the proper tools to get the job done efficiently. Human Resources is no longer a resource for the employee, will not make a decision. Technology is lacking and the ability to service the existing.
