    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 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.
