    I have been working at FMC Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    work-life balance, core-job, opens door to subsea oil & gas field. Young workforce and hence everyone is enthusiastic and ambitious to learn and grow..

    Cons

    No consistent work- random spikes in work, working harder than the rest does not mean better growth, opportunities highly (very very highly) skewed in favour of a few departments. no career progression plan, seems that the whole organization is roaming around in the dark with no proper direction.

    Advice to Management

    there should be one.

    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.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time

    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.

    I worked at FMC Technologies for more than 3 years

    Pros

    7% matching 401k (3% vested after 3 years), 3 weeks vacation, Good work/life balance. Tons of project work in good times. Lots of opportunity to advance your career if you choose to do so (lots of sideways movement, only upward movement if you obtain an MBA). Layoff packages aren't so bad. Good management (they generally leave you alone if you're kicking butt...aka..providing on-time delivery so we look good in... the face of the customer and management gets their big bonuses).

    Show More

    Cons

    Lots of red tape. Good ol' boys club in management (don't get me wrong, most of them are good people, but you just have to be in their club to play at that level). Lower and middle management are tend to parrot orders from the top and are generally do not have the power to do anything but within the scope of their tiny circle of power.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing the best you can given the times.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good source of training. Some good people are left.

    Cons

    Middle management cronyism is disheartening. Bad actors are often preferred over solid, good performers. Political maneuvering and malevolent ambition is rewarded with promotions/ awards where other qualified, well respected and solid performers are overlooked, passed over or demoted. Short-sighted, wasteful, and reactionary management is the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Do you know who your employees are? Employees hired after the 1990's also matter and may even have more to contribute than the old standby.

    Pros

    Pay was good. Opportunity for promotion was good as long as you knew the right people. Safe work environment.

    Cons

    Benefits were not the best They will throw you our the door to reduce cost when in a down cycle with little severance package compared to other mayors.

    Pros

    good work/life balance, decent compensation.

    Cons

    Was a good place to work for but Engineering work is becoming boring and repetitive. engineering design review processes are becoming overburden some and don't increase product quality.

    Advice to Management

    value good engineers instead of forcing processes on workers. The best processes in the world will not prevent incompetent workers become negligent.
