    I worked at FMI Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good professional family. Lots of knowledge written down and in the heads of employees.

    Cons

    The folks who talk a lot and do not know a lot - sometimes succeed. Travel and the inherent eating out all the time takes its toll.

    I have been working at FMI Corporation part-time

    Pros

    This is an organization that knows how to develop its people FMI does a great job in getting to know your strengths and weaknesses and really tries to help you grow. In addition, FMI is really interested in leveraging you at the company no matter what your title is. Everyone gets to have a voice for the most part. They are diligent in practicing what they preach in that they are a company that always is focused on the why, and our vision. We are always giving feedback both positive and constructive to how to become better

    Cons

    FMI is really ambiguous about their promotion schedule or what it takes to get promoted. I was first told 3-6 months and then it changed to maybe a year. It makes it hard to know what's really going on. In addition, FMI does not give part-time employees benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more guidance and structure to how you are going to promote employees. Saying one thing and then changing it later can cause employees to loose trust in their employer. Be clear about what benefits are provided on your website

    I worked at FMI Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful Denver office environment and location, friendly and talented administrative team in Denver and Raleigh, sufficient new employee training, room and encouragement to expand responsibility and role. A variety of project management work (meeting/event planning, travel, project coordination, etc.) to basic administrative support. Management team exceptional to work for; professional. Small and personable office; quiet usually, unless they are hosting a fun in-house event. Overall, a quality place to work!

    Cons

    If I MUST offer Cons, they would be: Administrative staff complaints of communication struggles between office management and consultants. Favoritism and indirect communication. Administrative staff occupies small, open-style cubicles where little to no privacy. Admin staff required to rotate into receptionist duties.

    Advice to Management

    Create true administrator and project manager roles. Be competitive in the job market; continue to hire high quality, experienced professionals where they are compensated well for their contribution and experience, consider other methods of reward for admins; i.e., time off, bonus, stock, promotion, etc. Continue to find ways to promote and reward "we're all on the same team" mentality.

  8. "Exceptional Learning Exerience"

    Former Employee - Valuation Analyst in Denver, CO

    I worked at FMI Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working as an analyst, one is exposed to value-added work immediately, allowing one to learn in a fast-paced and challenging environment which is also supportive of one's development. Additionally, analysts work directly with managing directors which is beneficial to gain valuable industry insight and knowledge. This also helps one get noticed for exceptional performance. No day is ever the same as there are always different types of projects going on.

    Cons

    The office environment might not be for everyone. Due to the size of the Company and travel schedules, it can be quiet at times.

    "Opportunity to shape the E&C industry"

    I have been working at FMI Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to help shape an industry (engineering and construction) that is thirsty for innovation and progressive ways to engage and develop the workforce. Strong brand and reputation to stand on. Given the amount of transition of ownership and management, there is an endless amount of opportunity to take over business and client opportunities. Many feel that prior FMI leadership was "stale" but that is certainly changing, and new leadership is not willing to accept status quo. Many positive changes around marketing, data and analytics, internal collaboration and industry partnerships.

    Cons

    Of course the travel regimen is not easy for all. Also, some do not like or deal well with ambiguity. Being a small organization, people fill many roles, and if you're not the right cultural fit (and you need very prescriptive direction) then it could be hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the foot on the gas with regard to change; it's not always easy, but it's appreciated.

    Bridge the gap between the Partner level and the new consultants.
