    I worked at FMC Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some excellent people. Friendly culture. Ethical. Trying to be customer focused.

    Cons

    A lot of talk about collaboration but not many people really demonstrating it. Still too many traditional organisational barriers. Difficult to drive any change forward. There always seem to be multiple reasons for not doing something. Too many who want to keep doing things the same way, even though it is not working any more. Very complex processes, no-one really understands how they all fit together, or where...

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the processes. Accountability includes supporting people who are trying to take ownership, giving them the tools and resources they need, not just telling them they are accountable.

    I have been working at FMC Technologies

    Pros

    Colleagues very helpful; management work hard at getting things right though don't always succeed; HR are good despite other review, always supportive and sometimes deliverers of bad news; benefits are competitive, let's hope the new merge company keeps it that way.

    Cons

    Local site often taken for granted, we do good things but don't shout about it, it's what we are all paid to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the personal touch, do what is the right thing in the new culture.

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

    Pros

    Good experience, core values, attempts to be ethically and culturally aware. Reasonable work life balance but that depends on function and location

    Cons

    All change when the chips are down. Lack of any planning has got everyone that can protecting their own position (and their stock options) at the expense of others. HR have way too much power for what is only a support function

    Advice to Management

    Try looking after the people that matter and not just your friends. Stop letting HR walk all over you and set an example in proper open leadership - you all talk a good game, or is that all it is - just talk?
