    "Good work life balance, horrible management"

    I worked at FMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work life balance, decent vacation/benefits, nice people to work with (outside of management). Lower managers were supportive.

    Cons

    Upper Management is horrible. Either you're part of the clique or not....bonus structure for sales was based on things not in your control.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, be a leader, and let those who are leaders do what they do best, lead. Take advice from underlings.

    I worked at FMC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation, pension. I was always treated well and was able to have many opportunities.

    Cons

    Many different businesses are managed very differently. A gentle standard could provide consistency across bosses. The pay is below average, but a little offset with decent benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to MBA managers. Some are ok, but others live their lives bordering on harassment.
