- Lot of learning opportunities if you get a site opportunity - Stakeholders(Houston, Norway, Dunfermline or Singapore) recognize your talent in no time and support with high level of responsibility and ready to give full ownership of projects - Young blood all around so good scope for lots of new ideas (although never utilized this opportunity)
- No control of Houston or other well established sites (Policies, Core values, Benefits, Promotions or anything). I believe they never care as well. So FMC India is independent body that can devise it's own policies and strategies - No interest in leadership development - Interested in Billing hours rather than quality of work - New Core values FMC India: Hard work never pays off,Leadership team shouldn't have technical/managerial knowledge, Never ask for increment or promotion, Never think of providing ideas to make it a better work place(It's Managers & Leads Duty only)6

There are many customers and stations to support, so you get a lot of direct help desk experience and lots of travel time. Taking time off is very flexible, given that you have enough days to take. You get course training so you have SOME opportunity/chances to advance when the time is right.
Work flow and schedule varies greatly; sometimes it's very slow, other times there's too much to do. You have to know more than what is expected of you (ie. you get little help from team members as they are focused in doing other work, on the field most of the time, or simply trying to satisfy their boss). Clients/customers expect too much from IT support (they expect that you know everything; whenever something breaks down, they blame it on you). Good course training is given to those that have more seniority (ie those that have been there longer but in the same position as you), which is not fair for those that have been there for a shorter time but also want to advance. From the stories that I have heard, IT staff have left for various reasons (mainly for a "better" position, "better" environment, didn't like the work that was given to them, wasn't given enough attention, etc.).

Very good place to begin working for mechanical engineers. Pure core job and fmc being leader in subsea with 70% market share, and the most innovative, means you really get challenging and pioneering tasks. You don't need any soft skills, or need to sell yourself. This being an oem, it relies only on good engineers. The issue in India office is people comparing their salaries with google and microsoft and not with companies like tata motors and mahindra and bajaj, which are mechanical. Initial package is normal but once you prove yourself, you get salary hikes of 20% and above and will reach six digit within 4-5 years. But very few have the zeal to first perform and then being rewarded, every one here wants the salary first.
Management is not really keen to ensure proper justice. It waits for the people who cry , shout and rewards them. The performers sit in a corner honestly working, without much hue and cry, but in the end the people who cry and have GOOD TERMS WITH management &PERCEIVED BEING AN EXPERT WITHOUT ACTUALLY BEING ONE, get almost the same treatment and opportunities ( in some teams much more) than actual stars. This is the biggest demoraliZing factor in an otherwise wonderful company. Also because the managers have lost touch with engineering and are not able to judge good from ordinary, hence are fooled by words.2
