Culture was considerably more supportive prior to 2013. Within the past few years, reduced staff levels and increased work loads have eroded the culture.
Support from management
Expectations are high, clearly communicated but may not maximize employees feedback in the decision making process
Generally good - colleagues interact honestly with each other.
Freedom to work independently
Varies depending on function- frequent meetings often change priorities.
FMC management communicates trends, results and direction on a regular basis but previous acquisitions have not delivered the returns expected.
There are equal opportunities for men and women.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The company favors younger employees for most staff level jobs.
Career development can be a challenge as it's a big company with high sometimes unrealistic expectations.
Overall compensation for your work
Company overall pays well.
Office / Work Environment
I understand that the new corporate building has many amenities however, working in close quarter cubicles may detract from certain tasks.
Company markets its Sustainability efforts well but most decisions are driven by profit potential.
Work life balance has suffered over the years.
I was more proud to work for this company before 2013.
There has been considerable restructuring and elimination of positions in the last few years which you need to keep in mind.
Not an issue meeting all handicapped requirements.
Workplace safety is paramount.
Work can be very challenging and you will learn a lot.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity is valued
