    I have been working at FMC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people to work with, lots of positive reinforcement and the company values the workers there

    Cons

    The company's top leadership appears to want to position the company for a buyout.

    Advice to Management

    Oracle is a better system than SAP and who ever set up the SAP system made some major inter company system errors.

    Do what you say you're going to do for both FMC and its employees.

    Clearly decide the mission of the organization, communicate it to everyone, and give feedback on both successes and failures. Us technology to bring plants leaders together, Have open meeting discussions so successes and failures can be shared and questions discussed between plants.

    I worked at FMC

    Pros

    They pay good, most of the people were great to work with, casual work environment (yes, we could wear jeans to work).

    Cons

    Lean staffing, long hours and little recognition for your efforts. No consistency with policies, annual performance reviews a joke, a majority of managers didn't even bother doing them.

    Advice to Management

    Implement consistent policies,ensure the performance evaluations are mandatory for all employees, weed out inept managers, investigate complains of unethical manager behavior.
