    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits is decent, but I'm confident I was underpaid
    There are nursing rooms available at Gears Rd.
    Gym with locker room is available at Gears Rd.
    Company culture is good
    Racially diverse workforce

    Cons

    Finding parking at Gears Rd is difficult if arriving after 9 am.
    Like every greedy corporation that is publicly traded, you are just a NUMBER and the number of years you've worked with company won't matter when there are workforce reductions.
    The severance package is TERRIBLE (at least for non-managerial roles)
    No transferable skills if working as project engineer in CDM

    Advice to Management

    Reduce wait time (18 months) for transitioning to another role.
    Provide more networking opportunities for employees to see what other departments/roles are like within the company.
    Increase maternal leave timeframe.
    Small teambuilding is better than department teambuilding.
    Why don't you put more focus on employee satisfaction? Less turnover, less need for mass hiring, and a lesser need for layoffs.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Great place to work.
    Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    The work loads were not always distributed equally across the functioning group.
    Not many cons...
