    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 a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Everyone is very nice and helpful and works hard to make sure the work is done well and is complete. The group at the office is small and everyone works to be inclusive.

    Cons

    Not well integrated into the overall business. Management needs to complete integration of accounting and payroll systems to complete acquisition and integration.

    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.

    Pros

    Great quality philosophy
    Good products
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Lack of accountability from top-down
    Processes were created to follow quality guidelines but not followed
    Different original companies remained operating isolated. Little integration of processes and practices at global level

    Advice to Management

    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.

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

    Pros

    Friendly company with great new campus (built in late 2016). Going through a merger (early 2017) that should open opportunities.

    Friendly hours (people rarely work past 5 or 5:30)

    Cons

    Lots of inefficiencies and lack of leadership providing clear strategy. Failure to innovate because of "good ol' boy" type thinking

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to innovate and provide clear strategy. Too much idle time due to employees not knowing what direction the division/company is going.
