    I have been working at FMC full-time

    Pros

    Great to work at this financially well-performing Fortune 1000 company and have a real impact shaping its future. Although conservative the way many chemical companies are, there is genuine support for strategies and initiatives to generate shareholder value in ways beyond traditional financial measures.

    Cons

    Like it is at many U.S. publicly-traded companies, short-term financial performance reigns supreme. This can manifest in an all-hands-on-deck mentality to meet the quarter, even if it negatively impacts focus and investment into longer-term activities that could lead to greater growth and sustainability.

    Advice to Management

    Dedicate resources, both human and financial, that can't be touched to meet quarterly earning, to create short and long-term customer value beyond the intrinsic value of our products, to help manage volatility in cyclical markets and the commoditization of the core.
