    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. It appears you might be looking for FMC Technologies. FMC Corporation is a distinct company and has no location in Houston.

      I worked at FMC full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      When oil is up they throw away money like nothing. Willing to investigate any and all deviance of products. Support numerous investigative and prototype tests.

      Cons

      Do not support tenure or experience. Look to hire and engineer, burn him out, replace hind with a new hire.

      Advice to Management

      Support your current employees, if everyone leaves there is no retention.

      I worked at FMC full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good salary. Signing bonus and retention bonus to seal the deal. Only a two year contract and then you can leave and not pay relocation and bonus money back in full. You will realize that you want to leave in 6 months or less, if you have ever worked at some place that is good. The lone pro is the money. Everything else is a con. A consolation is that you only have to stay 2 years before you can leave without...

      Cons

      Micro management like you have never seen before! An absolutely horrible Union that runs the place and a management team with no managerial fortitude and zero leadership skills. The leadership is at there best when painting a story for corporate.

      Advice to Management

      FMC did well to sell at a premium. Tronox and Tom Casey bought a cash cow to save the TiO2 business, but the cow is very ill. Severe the FMC legacy and get a fresh start with a new management team with modern skills, strategies and techniques.

      Pros

      Lots of projects to work on in big plants. Great place to start out an engineering career. If you are ambitious there are lots of opportunities to climb the ladder. Company is always willing to pay for training.

      Cons

      Location, it is in the middle of nowhere. It's okay if you can keep yourself busy with outdoor hobbies.

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      If you are lazy and do not want to work, the management group at the Bessemer City site does not have enough sense to fire you. Pay and benefits are good, but they have to pay enough to try and keep people from leaving. Have a reasonable performance review program. There is some effort around training. They are generally nice, friendly people but unable to execute

      Cons

      Maybe it's changed since I left, but here's what I saw: Mechanical Integrity: piping is severely corroded, tanks develop holes, pumps are operated until the mounting bases rust away, building walls are cracked. In one instance, building steel rusted through and their process building started to fall onto the railroad tracks. Very depressing conditions. Safety: PHAs are very crude, multiple areas where employees...
