    Pros

    Lots of generous benefits, provides a lot of training and development opportunities, strong and stable company that really takes care of its people. Plenty of opportunity to try new things, get involved in projects and stretch yourself if you are willing to step outside your comfort zone. Lots of opportunity for travel. People who work here have a strong work ethic and work very hard, which is balanced by the work-life balance offered through benefits and flexibility etc..

    Cons

    Flatter structure can mean opportunities become available more frequently internationally than domestically.

    Advice to Management

    Great to see a strong focus on diversity in the last few years. Keep it up!

    Pros

    Family feel but global opportunities. Salaries are just above average but the overall package is top class and the defined benefit pension is a massive plus.

    Cons

    Flat structure means opportunities aren't as frequent as in other companies but if you are capable the company will give you a great career.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    Outstanding total employee benefits and rewards. Intelligent and collaborative colleagues. Sound business model in a mature business that still believes that employees are our greatest asset.

    Cons

    I wish I joined sooner. The company recognizes that there is a need to evolve. It is happening - with caution - to protect the heritage. Completely understandable.

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable company, flexible work arrangements

    Cons

    Hardly any room for career growth at lower level admin type positions. You will not get promoted unless you take the initiative yourself and hope someone retires from the position you want. People stay in the same position for years.

    I worked at FM Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and pension plan is good

    Cons

    No career advancement. It will take endless time to move into next level into the career. No proper communication from HR people after resign from the job. Management is micro level management. No work from home and no telecommuting options in work.
