    I worked at FMC full-time

    Pros

    Gratuitous pay. The environment was casual and very friendly as long as your the same yourself. A strong dedication to safety which is a big plus in the manufacturing setting. The things you can do are determined by you and approved by your mentor/supervisor.

    Cons

    Stay away from them passive aggressive ones.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Help your intern/co-op be prepared for the future.

    I worked at FMC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary. Signing bonus and retention bonus to seal the deal. Only a two year contract and then you can leave and not pay relocation and bonus money back in full. You will realize that you want to leave in 6 months or less, if you have ever worked at some place that is good.

    The lone pro is the money. Everything else is a con. A consolation is that you only have to stay 2 years before you can leave without having to pay back the up front money.

    Cons

    Micro management like you have never seen before! An absolutely horrible Union that runs the place and a management team with no managerial fortitude and zero leadership skills. The leadership is at there best when painting a story for corporate.

    Advice to Management

    FMC did well to sell at a premium. Tronox and Tom Casey bought a cash cow to save the TiO2 business, but the cow is very ill.

    Severe the FMC legacy and get a fresh start with a new management team with modern skills, strategies and techniques.

    Pros

    travel and training opportunities available

    Cons

    sexist, non diverse leadership. Not a healthy place if politics is not your middle name. Authentic, compassionate leadership does not last or exist for very long....

    I worked at FMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent Pay. Sign on bonuses available. New building coming in later 2016 which includes a cafe and nice facilities for working.

    Cons

    Operations should expect and demand better and effective corporate leadership. High turn over. Three women leaders have left the company in the last six months. Worker Safety is not going to get better if leaders keep lowering the goal in order to guarantee their bonuses.
