    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.

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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

    I worked at FMC Technologies for almost 10yrs. FMC offered me a lot of opportunities to gain experience and sharpen my skillsets. They are unique in that they are a manufacturing company that serves the Oil & Gas industry. This allowed me to greatly broaden my skillsets, and strengthen my resume.

    Cons

    Very much the old school, "good 'ole boy" business mentality. Progression through the company greatly depended on what you could do for those above you, not so much what you could do for the company. This organization has a lot of great talent, but a lot of times seems to be misplaced and underutilized. Pay structure is based more on years of service and not credentials, very much a "put in the time" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Share with employees your vision for them. Show that you value your employees. Create an environment that promotes growth and progression for those who achieve success.

    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.
