      Approves of CEO

      I worked at FMC for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Lots of great benefits as you might expect from a large corporation, everyone was very accommodating and the culture moves slowly.

      Cons

      Not a lot of team projects, a very isolating experience as far as internships go.

      I worked at FMC full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Beautiful building, some departments offer amazing work/life balance with working from home, flex hours (depends on manager). Room for growth. Education assistance available. Some departments feel like family.

      Cons

      Work/life balance is completely different based on which department you sit in. Seniority doesn't help when it comes to layoffs. CEO blatantly lies about strategy to employees during town halls - no wonder employees don't trust him.

      Advice to Management

      People used to stay their entire careers, that is no longer the case. Look internally to see all the issues leading to your retention problem.

      Pros

      Talented and knowledgeable group of people, good benefits, great location in Philadelphia with priceless views.

      Pros

      Philly office convenient to regional rail. Company offers free shuttle to patco. Building is new and modern with on site cafeteria.

      Challenging environment with integrating recent acquisitions and fragmented internal communication at times. Lots of internal silos and politics can be frustrating.

      I worked at FMC full-time for more than 20 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.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at FMC full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I received a decent bonus this year.

      Cons

      Too many meeting, overly concerned with hitting numbers, not driving the business or making sound business decisions. No concern for employees or positive moral in company.

      Advice to Management

      Look to the outside for hiring instead of constantly hiring from within, internal hires lack drive, decision making abilities, only interested in politics.
