    I have been working at FMC Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. sometimes good opportunities 2. friendly work place 3. good platform to switch to a better job 4. if you work then your value is appreciated globally (but here no one cares)

    Cons

    1. you have to prove yourself over and over again. 2. upper management is horrible and changes every year. in my opinion managers and team leads don't have the required knowledge and technical skills for their positions. 3. some engineers get good opportunities again and again while other hardworking engineers never get any. Hence, the company motivates the later engineers to look for better opportunities outside... this company either by switching or by going for higher education.

    Advice to Management

    please hire better managers and team leads and they need to be transparent and earn trust of employees; focus on the employee growth by providing good projects, work environment and impartiality towards employees.

    Former Employee - Tender Project Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fast paced management of manufacturing for large subsea oil and gas products. Great co-workers. Good support from technical teams.

    Cons

    Company is matrix organization. Role had all the responsibility of engineering and manufacturing product from proposal, to design, to delivery (good challenge), but no direct control over personnel/groups working on your project. Upper management would re-prioritize projects, delaying the work, after you had negotiated delivery dates with client. Very frustrating!

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance at FMC is very good, I was able to negotiate extra PTO and could use it at my own discretion. There are a great group of folks working there and all understand the hurdles you face working at FMC.

    Cons

    Turnover is ridiculous, especially at the operational level at the field locations. As soon as you build re pore with someone, poof they are gone. FMC Can't seem to retain the strong, smart, and sociable employees. I think it is honestly due to the fact that upper management has done a pretty awful job of providing guidance on how to navigate in the industry today. Every couple of months there is a new... re-organization of the division and new managers, it provides a pretty unstable culture which creates fear within the employees to even want to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop promoting folks that come of as "team players,NICE, go getters" and start promoting individuals based off their work performance and reviews from managers that have worked with them through projects. There are way too many people that were cut that would've helped whether the storm going on in the industry. Instead, there are a ton of folks still employed at FMC that only made it by the way of brown... nosing.... therefore your ship is sinking.

    Pros

    The people, your peers across the globe are very easy to work with. You do get an opportunity to keep moving up and travel depending on your role.

    Cons

    New upper management is making vey questionable decisions that has affected hundreds of employees. Just because you are good at what you do, does not guarantee that you will be working there tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and get to know them first before you make tough decisions. A lot of good people have been let go that should still be there.

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

    Pros

    Gave me the opportunity to grow and develop lots of technical experience. Will always be grateful! Wonderful people and end users to work with.

    Cons

    To much politics, self obsession, ignorance, selfishness, untrust worthy, unorganized upper management (above managers) i.e. CIO and Directors within IT organization. They are completely disconnected from the business and they are really hurting the business without realizing. They are more concerned with FMC Technologies Inc. being bought "Merger" with Technip.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to question CIO and DIrector's motives. And Upper management (above managers) need to stop being dishonest with their employees working for and reporting to them. They need to work with Business closely and listen to employee's constructive criticism as they are working more close with business every day than they are.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to move around in the company and experience the many facets of FMC Technologies. Great internal training program that is working to get employees better training and development in their fields.

    Cons

    Office tensions are high, due to unforeseen future. Lack of motivation among employees. Seems as though upper management is not doing anything to boost morale.

    Advice to Management

    Help improve morale. It is hard to stay focused when their really is not anything to keep people motivated. Valuing People is not a core value that is being felt right now at all.

    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company used to offer 1. Great Training 2. Opportunity for advancement 3. Ability to seek exciting opportunities once you have made it to a certain level

    Cons

    Very typically of companies that have gotten too big with no reason for checks and balances they became "who you know" not "what you know". I was witness to a manager hiring people he had previously met at a bar. Saw many clicques form and many people with experience began leaving or being let go due to the failing economic client. There was a terribly high emphasis on change but no real direction. Upper management... was being driven by recent college students to make changes, this made very little sense because they are the managers...

    Advice to Management

    Don't play games with peoples careers, please place emphasis on actually manufacturing and R&D and not processes so you can report your accomplishments up the chain. Listen to your employees.
