    Pros

    - You are bound to get anything if you are a "CHATU". In other words, keep your team lead/manager engaged with you for all the irrelevant talks you might have from new cell phones to new data recharges and it is bound to give you benefits (a foreign tour or higher salary increment) - No one cares about you, what you do. All the higher management wants is billable hours and on time delivery. Its the other people in different locations (Houston/Singapore/Norway) who better deal with setting scopes and deadlines for projects. Why a pro? - you can set up deadlines according to your needs and managers in India will be happy to see you delivering projects at right time. - A good mix of talented freshers (mind you, the intake of fresh grads is drastically reducing from top tier colleges as FMC india is not able to fulfill the needs and retain people from IIT's). Anyhow, it has a good atmosphere with lot of young and chill people willing to put efforts to learn new things. - A better work-personal life balance. you will get time to enjoy your personal life provided you do proper planning of your tasks. This place is good for people having hometown in Hyderabad but for outsiders, you get way too less leaves to go to enjoy at some tourist spot without loss of pay. - international work ex - Yes, you might chance to visit and work at different locations (Houston/ Norway/ Laban/ Brazil / Etc. ) but it is getting increasingly rare (no thanks to oil market slump) but as mentioned earlier, if you are a CHATU you might see your name appearing in the VISA list quite often. - Learning - If you are new, you will be happy to learn the industry jargon's and few amazing drawings and animations of machines and other equipment's. But, mind you only PPT's and videos. Little or no hands on experience in FMC India. God knows, a testing lab exist which keeps running a particular test all year long , so nothing new to learn in it. If you are experienced, be ready for a surprise, the top management has no work experience in oil and gas sector. No one is going to teach you learn and knowledge transfer is only in words. You need to scroll through PPTs and videos to learn things yourself. - Supportive people - working people have a good team spirit and help each other quite often. people are approachable and are always ready to share their experiences and clear your doubts. A hands up to the young people out there who have energy and are willing to make a mark. But, again a catch, the motivation has been decreasing with all the good people leaving the company (attrition is around 30% on minimum conservative estimate)

    Cons

    - Big and Bigger talks - Don't get fooled by company's leadership status in the global market. They will try to sell you everything you want but, remember this is FMC India. You need to keep minimum expectations to not to get surprised by the fancy talks and no results - Irrelevant experiences of managers - all the managers are from a different background rather than oil and gas sector ( its my honor to tell you the reason behind it - FMC India cant afford quality managers with relevant work ex). so, don't get surprised when they don't understand what you are doing and what you want. - Waste of hardwork - No matter how much you work or spend 16 hours in office, no one is going to give you a reward for it. everyone gets a similar salary increment (except a few chatus which i mentioned earlier). It makes me bow my head down to say that if you work in this company for three years, you get an appreciation award of three thousand rupees! three thousand rupees - yes you heard it right. - feedback meetings - welcome to the world of the conductive environment of FMC india. you will be forced to attend all hands meetings, skip level meetings, some group surveys, brown bag meetings, and what not. The outcome - is again unsurprisingly - nothing. they take the inputs, put in a bag and throw it in the garbage. The management will make promises but as it is said, keep showing the carrot, the donkey will keep running. - Facilities and Perks - straight answer to perks - nothing. Facilities - a coffee machine only. they started up a snack center which is a good initiative , but its a matter of time to see till it lasts. - Qualtiy of people - Managers as told dont have relevant work ex. there is a lot of favoritism and politics have played the role before even to get to know about it. Lot of experienced and quality people have left the company and others are on the same way. reasons are obvious - come here and get to know them all. - policies - anything that favors FMC India is used. The global policies are for namesake and again remember this is FMC India.
