      Disapproves of CEO

      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.
