    Pros

    Well organized company where people is valued and plenty of opportunity to progress is given to all employees.

    Too big of a company with conflicts between regions.

    I worked at FMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work life balance, decent vacation/benefits, nice people to work with (outside of management). Lower managers were supportive.

    Cons

    Upper Management is horrible. Either you're part of the clique or not....bonus structure for sales was based on things not in your control.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, be a leader, and let those who are leaders do what they do best, lead. Take advice from underlings.

    I worked at FMC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Should be a great place to work with great camaraderie, commitment to innovation and delivering great results. Below the top, good people who are committed and loyal to a fault.

    Cons

    Exclusive boys' club at the top; short term focus only on stock price to generate more wealth for the executives and board. No vision or strategy for employees to get behind and work towards. wouldn't be surprised if it was bought or split up again in the near future, but there is a big tower with the name on it - so there's that.

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation, pension. I was always treated well and was able to have many opportunities.

    Cons

    Many different businesses are managed very differently. A gentle standard could provide consistency across bosses. The pay is below average, but a little offset with decent benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to MBA managers. Some are ok, but others live their lives bordering on harassment.

    Cons

    None what so ever. Thank you.
