    I worked at FMC full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, that's about it

    Cons

    Overall, there is just a bad, negative energy present in the corporate office. The company is poorly run and loaded with unethical managers who very clearly don't know what they are doing and blame everything on staff who are given poor leadership and direction. Most managers don't even bother to come into the office many days a week and "work from home." There also seems to be a consistent pattern of removing or driving out competent long time staff and replacing with incompetent new employees and managers, sometimes two and three individuals to do the job one competent person could do, yet somehow incompetent employees who shut up and just tow the line and keep their head down like the walking dead somehow retain their job despite contributing nothing beneficial other than taking up space. I am not sure how this company makes any money and honestly believe it will crumble or be bought out soon.

    Advice to Management

    Take some classes on management skills; listen to your employees; don't feel so threatened when someone challenges you. And show up to the office more than a few days a week to build your team.

    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.
