    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time

    Pros

    FMC Technologies is overall a very good place to work. The employees were great. FMC has competitive salaries and a great 401k match. Management was as transparent as possible during downturn.

    Cons

    Personally I was not a fan of the health plans available, however the push for all high deductible plans is pretty wide spread.

    Advice to Management

    I hope management has continued to maintain the good working culture even with the merger to Technip.

    Benefits, schedule, people, opportunities, work life balance.

    Management structure, buddy systems, Unnecessary changes at any signs of adversity. retaining the worst talent to secure self during layoffs leaving the company at risk or in tight spots. letting go all of the knowledgeable people that helped mold the company into what it was.

    Advice to Management

    If there are to be any additional layoffs start with Management!

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

    Pros

    Since the merge with TechnipFMC, things have changed dramatically. I will speak to how FMC USED to be. The culture within FMC was always like a family. We all cared for each other and helped each other. We all had to wear numerous hats but we were happy. Pay was good. Work to pay ratio was good. Management valued all. I can say that FMC has a great payment package when they lay you off.

    Cons

    After the merger, FMC became expendable. It's a matter of time before the divisions that Technip didn't need will be gone. They could care less about the employees or how devastating it is.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training invested, Excellent people, opportunities to move around, Manufacture process from concept design to finished product all under one roof practically, Last to lay off during hard times

    Cons

    Pays lower than most other competitors on average, HR was given to much power to control advancement, pay raise, and position for individual employee rather than letting management. Will not fight to keep tenured employees. Good Ole Boy system was intact for a long, long, long time.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your good people or you will ultimately lose them.

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

    Pros

    learned a lot at FMC. made many contacts in Oil and Gas. could take what I've learned and get many different type jobs

    Cons

    Lots of bad attitude from management and co-workers. Employees were treated unfairly by leads but worked twice as hard. Management, supervisors and leads never listened to technicians.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time recognizing talents, and achievements as much as you do failures you might have not had to merge with Technip. Your employees gave up on you cause of their environment.

    Lack of accountability from top-down

    Good luck with the Technip merger. Make sure you do what you said you would do. Delegate some decision making to the people that report to you, they are great professionals.
