    Pros

    Good benefits, nice 401k match.

    Cons

    Big corporation who thinks they know everything about every industry. Bought out my former company and ran it into the ground. We were only numbers there, not people.

    I have been working at FMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salary is on par with the region.

    Cons

    Where does one begin...
    The executives are only interested in padding their pockets.
    They higher consultants for everything instead of listening to those in the trenches because it's all about greed and profit even if it takes an employee 3 times the amount of time to now do a task.
    The infrastructure is garbage... especially procurement.
    They reward bad behavior. It's okay to have affairs because the married president did. Or commit fraud on your expense report because a sales director does.
    You're guaranteed employment if you can fudge numbers or hide charges.
    Accounts Payable is given orders to delay processing payments at any given time so either the CEO can get his bonus or so quarterly reporting numbers look good.
    Many managers can't manage their way out of a paper bag.
    And they all think the employees don't know any of this...even down to the CEO walking into his glass door which required stitches. So much for the emphasis on safety and the bogus "safety shares" we have at every meeting.

    Advice to Management

    It's insulting to your employees when you pull this disgraceful behavior. Everyone talks about the years of poor communication at FMC. It's not an issue of some business teams or people being left in the dark. The management is untrustworthy. Straighten up your act, act like decent professionals and stop sticking your face in every magazine, news segment, interview and clean up your house! Your personal ratings are dismal.

    Pros

    Schedule, patients, co workers, benefits, career advancement

    Cons

    Pay, expectations, lack of flexibility, biohazards, losing patients

    Advice to Management

    More pay for technicians. The job is fast paced, high stress, and deserves more than a bank teller's salary.

    Philly office convenient to regional rail. Company offers free shuttle to patco. Building is new and modern with on site cafeteria.

    Challenging environment with integrating recent acquisitions and fragmented internal communication at times. Lots of internal silos and politics can be frustrating.

    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.
