    I worked at FMC full-time (More than 10 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.

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

    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.

    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.
