    I have been working at FMC full-time

    Pros

    Great to work at this financially well-performing Fortune 1000 company and have a real impact shaping its future. Although conservative the way many chemical companies are, there is genuine support for strategies and initiatives to generate shareholder value in ways beyond traditional financial measures.

    Cons

    Like it is at many U.S. publicly-traded companies, short-term financial performance reigns supreme. This can manifest in an all-hands-on-deck mentality to meet the quarter, even if it negatively impacts focus and investment into longer-term activities that could lead to greater growth and sustainability.

    Advice to Management

    Dedicate resources, both human and financial, that can't be touched to meet quarterly earning, to create short and long-term customer value beyond the intrinsic value of our products, to help manage volatility in cyclical markets and the commoditization of the core.

    I worked at FMC full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at FMC. They took an interest in developing their employees and always offered continuing education courses. You have the flexibility to take calculated risks without being penalized.

    Cons

    The time I worked for FMC was in the same business unit. It was very difficult to move between business units as they operated autonomously.

    I worked at FMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent Pay. Sign on bonuses available. New building coming in later 2016 which includes a cafe and nice facilities for working.

    Cons

    Operations should expect and demand better and effective corporate leadership. High turn over. Three women leaders have left the company in the last six months. Worker Safety is not going to get better if leaders keep lowering the goal in order to guarantee their bonuses.
