Traffic Clerk (Former Employee), Mechanicsburg,PAAugust 28, 2013
Pros: good money
Cons: arrogant supervisors, no training
Mechanicsburg PA location is a joke. No training. Smug attitudes. You will find out after hire that you are surrounded with temps who will soon be let go. Be ready to beg for assistance and be greeted with condecending attitudes and rolling eyes. Enjoy sexist and homophobic "jokes" Mechanicsburg lead provided plenty...no training, but plenty of offensive – more... comments. HR?...useless. You will speak with eleven people in Philadelphia and New Jersey sending the same information time and again at your own expense. Easy to understand why the same jobs are repeatedly posted for this location. – less

mediocrity is par for the course.
product line (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 26, 2013
Pros: they are still growing
Cons: junior people in key decision making rolls
My 7 years with them I've seen mainly Engineers right from college
or Engineers from other industries come in. I know too few people
from other companies in the same Industry working there. I know
more Engineers and Designers, I respect, that have left than still
work there.

Real change to improve production or achieving quality in a timely
manner – more... is non existent. I do believe they strive for QUALITY but
1970's mentality does not cut it today. Meaning, tribal knowledge
kept by each department, almost non-existant process of
assemblies, assembly procedures written as a ritual, not intelligible.
Documents and Drawings are save as of a save as, to write or to
make drawings from inception is consider a waste of time. they do
not see the positive side of re-evaluating a product just because it is
modify.

unfortunately, they see great value having team-building events on
average twice a year even though they only deliver about 55 to 60%
of major products on time. FMC Technologies is the leader in
Subsea oil equipment but, they will not be, as they continue down
this path. – less

Service Technician (Former Employee), Odessa, TXAugust 21, 2013
Pros: very laid back work atmosphere.
Cons: none bad enough to mention.
A typical day at work consisted of assembling, repairing, and delivering wellhead equipment. Service work was plentiful and happened at all hours. This is where I learned my basic knowledge of wellheads and their application. The management and my co-workers were great. Very laid-back. There was nothing really difficult about the job. I enjoyed the – more... free time I had spending time with co-workers. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Odessa, TXAugust 20, 2013
Pros: free lunches, worked with my schedule and always a good atmosphere. also a well relaxed place to be at.
Cons: nothing at all
Typical day at work was always just making orders, taking orders and helping our clients. Management was always a great part of the company. Always helped and was willing to teach me new and improved things. My co-workers were always the biggest help at the begging of my days at FMC Technologies. Being at FMC, there was really never a hard part about – more... it. Really it was always enjoyable with such an organized and easy going company and co-workers as well. Learning from this company was always to keep a well organized desk, work and always a well presented look. – less

Development Scientist (Former Employee), Township of Ewing, NJAugust 20, 2013
The company is well run, and many people who work there have been there for over 2 decades and plan on staying until retirement. The company cares about its employees as well as its customers.

Hard labor, terrible break room, poor leadership, valuable oil and gas experience
Service Technician (Current Employee), Fort Lupton, COAugust 19, 2013
Pros: decent pay and benefits, 1 hour lunch
Cons: long hours, hard work, weather conditions, poor leadership, lazy workers
A typical day started off with inspecting all of our equipment and performing daily logs and tests. Then it was hard labor and cleaning and rebuilding our customer's frac iron. The process started off with recieving the iron, via serial numbers for each piece, by inputting the numbers in our database. Then after creating a scope of work for the pieces, – more... we can inspect, UT, MAG particle, rebuild, pressure test, paint, and final inspect the iron. I learned a lot about the frac industry and the major companies involved in it. I also learned a lot about hard work, dedication, and perserverence. My coworkers were easy to get along with, but not many like to work hard and earn a paycheck. The hardest part with my job was dissassembling trailers and units. Also dealing with the dissorganization of the shop, and the poor leadership at the shop. Our manager was never to be seen, and he had broken some of our companies policies that he was never dissaplined for. I think that lead to complacency of my coworkers and leadership. There aren't many things to enjoy about this job except the very rare barbeques we had. Most of the guys are jokers, so that made my days a little uplifted. – less

Pros: independance of running your own business from home/van
Cons: large territory with low person per sqr mile
Loved the customer interaction. Great Area to work in South Texas. Just did not have the customer density to keep an independant tech in that area and no other areas available when they discontinused the corporate service there.

Machinist (Current Employee), Stephenville, TXJune 19, 2013
Pros: pay
Cons: human resources
I work 12 hour days, 3 days a week. The company pays for the remaining 4 hours for the 40 hour pay. There are a lot of machines to run and many more parts to be assembled. People are friendly and constantly worried for their jobs because every couple of years the company has lay-offs.
