    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good. Most of the people were nice.

    Cons

    The company focuses way too much on safety to the point of where it interferes with getting your job done. Some of the safety programs are so elementary and the company treats the employees with 5 year olds.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the elementary safey programs that are just waste of time. Putting a quota on the number of near misses and etc. just forces employees to make them up.

    Pros

    Great small town style company. Easy to talk to upper management whom were always at your disposal, wide spread industry influence and reputation, many divisions acrossed the country

    Cons

    bought out by FMC technologies, as a result wages were lowed and benefits decreased industry funding was also reduced

    Advice to Management

    Split off flowback division and become independent self sufficient entity

    I worked at FMC full-time

    Pros

    The old gang was a family and could do anything. I never thought I would say this but being let go was the BEST thing that could ever happen to me!

    Cons

    There is no more old gang left as they have been weeding out. Now they hire people who are yes men. God forbid you have an opinion keep it to yourself . or say good bye even if you had a 17+ years and had a great track record. If you are willing to do unethical stuff you will fit right in. If you speak up and your not playing their games you are fired. So if you are smart, stay away!

    Advice to Management

    One of your Strategy is to attract and retain the best talent. You should change your strategy to attract and retain yes men who are unethical.

    I have been working at FMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Due to the lousy location of the headquarters, there's flexibility with one's hours or working remotely. You'll want to take advantage of this because working with the upper management or executives is nauseating.

    Cons

    There's no level of professionalism at this company. If you're a middle-aged/elderly white male you could be golden, since it's an old boys' club. There's definitely an element of smoke and mirrors in everything the executive board does. Right now, they're trying to fool the DuPont folks who came over from a recent acquisition into thinking they have any control regarding their future and that of the business. The legacy FMC people know the "It's an exciting time" mantra is crap! All that means is more work will be dumped on you and only the top tier will get the bonuses to reflect your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying, stop cheating, stop getting into uncompromising situations that always accompany regional or large scale meetings. You're grown men, act like it. Stop assuming you're smarter than those others walking the halls, you're not. Everyone knows about the poor behavior.
