    I have been working at FMC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Market-focused company with strong portfolio and geographical diversification due to recent acquisition should help company weather current market and currency downturns. Good ethical employees who work hard.

    Cons

    No significant Cons. FMC is currently focused a great deal on integrating the new acquired company into the Agricultural business as well as overcoming the current market and currency downturn, which means that there is less emphasis on its other business lines and people. Career progression is slow, but hard work and good results are recognized by the team and management.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear guidance to employees through difficult times is of the utmost importance to keep people focused on the work and reduce potential brain loss.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FMC for more than a year

    Pros

    The average age in the Corporate Legal department is approximately 48. Historically, employees have been loyal and satisfied as depicted in the extremely low turnover rate.

    Cons

    As with most corporations, major culture shifts have a negative impact on morale.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to work more as a team and not allow the minorities to control the direction of the company for the future.

    Pros

    Good ethical employees who work hard. Customer-focused company. Recent acquisition should lead to geographic diversity.

    Cons

    Lots of change in past 2-3 years leading to burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Now that the company is more of an agricultural business versus diversified employees feel less certain. Management needs to clarify the new direction.

        I have been working at FMC

        Pros

        Good pay and benefits that match the Philadelphia Job Market.

        Cons

        Lack of leadership, leaders aren't held accountable for their actions and instead pass the blame downwards, management clicks team up against one and other thus creating a soiled organization within the company and even departments

        Advice to Management

        Stop being so risky in your decision making process. Not everything will turn out like you envision. Listen to the people in the business units, not consultants.
