Great People

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Although I only worked there for about a year, the people were wonderful. Supervisor looked out for employees and the work was interesting. I left to find a career in another field.

Dysfunctional, frustrating

Non-existent processes, constantly shifting priorities, toxic from the top down. Going through a real identity crisis. This company used to be a good employer that had the advantages of mutual ownership - steady career, not beholden to shareholders or short-termism. Not fast-paced or exciting, but a solid employer. In the past 5 years or so that has shifted with the 'help' or the usual suspect consulting firms. You now have the downsides of the 'old' company (lagging salaries, slow to move, aversion to change) but the upsides have gone. Benefits are being eroded, workload is unrealistic, and job security non-existent.I'd struggle to think who this employer would now suit. If you want excitement, autonomy, money, job security, you'll find better elsewhere.

CEO is extraordinarily short sighted

Do not come to FM Global unless you enjoy slogging through poor systems that no one will admit were failures, do they will never be improved. Or unless you enjoy expressing your opinions and frustrations and having senior management ignore you and then punish you for speaking up. Or unless you need one thing, and enjoy having the company give you some other useless thing instead that isn't helpful at all. This company is not for smart people who want a rewarding career. Senior management has made sure that only people they know and like will move up the ladder. The occasional diversity hire will temporarily disguise the near total whiteness of this company. They love their talking points but don't deliver on any of them. It is non-diverse. It says it offers flexibility but does not deliver that promise to its employees. It is a mistake to trust this company with something as valuable as your future. Walk away.

Great Benefits but many poor decisions by new CEO

The company has excellent benefits... can' deny that. Plus ample time off. However, the new CEO has made very aggressive policy changes over the last few years moving FM to be comparable to what most other companies offer and the same level of job security.

Great place to have a long term career

Great place to work and develop long term. Work load can be a challenge and training program takes forever. A little too much micromanagement but otherwise a great company.

Great benefits and great people.

I had some really stellar managers through my career. Great place to work. Benefits were the best. Not so much anymore for new hires but still great for us older employees who’ve been around a while.

Individual tasks are enjoyable

Management self promotes. Always reasons given to not promote lower level employees. Billable hours objectives are based on unachievable ideas. oh and GET YOUR VACCINE OR ELSE

Good people and company

Everything was great until they decided to go down an agile path that put everyone into big open areas to "Foster collaboration" which Made it very difficult to concentrate on the coding without all the visual distractions.

Privileged Culture

Meet some wonderful people during my tenure at the company. Their company culture can be challenging, especially if you are not a middle aged white man with an engineering degree. Slow advancement and not much more for growth due to tenured employees. Definitely need’s diversity & equity.

Good place to work, not as great as it was

Great benefits and physical office space, travel is top notch. Great technology. Token equal opportunities -women miss out on projects and training needed to move up. Often management is afraid to make changes. Pay raises are limited even with outstanding reviews.

Old school, male driven typical insurance company with no work flexibility and acceptance for modern employee desires.

What is the best part of working at the company?They pay above average, but that is to make up for the lack of upward mobility and little to no individual development.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Lack of involvement of those performing the work in the key meetings where the decisions are made, leading to miscommunication and lots of rework.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Arrogant and stuffy. Management more concerned about people sitting in the office than quality of work.

Pay was okay. Benefits were good. Management used to respect employees views. Now they shove DEI training down everyone's throats while being ignorant the the intolerance for differing viewpoints. They refuse to allow remote work even though everyone worked remotely throughout the pandemic. Save yourself. Look elsewhere.

This is not a place that I recommend to my friends and network.

What is the best part of working at the company?Leader created a toxic environment, where groupthink was the norm. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Chief Diversity Officer lacked strategic planning and insight. Cared more about 'busy' projects than creating sustainable changeWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Outside of the Diversity group, it seemed to be a collaborative environment. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Stressed , reminded me of girls in junior high school

Sadly lost its way

After decades of success as a company employees enjoyed working for, it has lost its way. Too many changes in leadership has resulted in chronic changes and lack of direction. Leadership is plagued with inflated ego. Recent division leadership external hires only exacerbate the problems.


Travel and bonuses when the company is succesful


Chronic chaos in the past 5 years

Awful place to work

This is a company that doesn’t care about their employees. You are a number and nothing more. They bring in new employees and they are always payed more than the existing employees and the you are expected to train someone being paid more than you. No way to advance it’s a dead end job. They push and suck the life out of you and then throw you away!

Best people you could ever work with or for!

The only reason my review is not 5 stars is because FM Global is constantly changing and was heavily reorganizing when I left. I don’t deal well with change, but that’s my shortcoming, not the company’s.That said, your coworkers and managers are the best, but everyone is busy. You must learn the FM Global way of doing things, and they will teach you! You must be organized as your world revolves around Microsoft Teams and Outlook email/calendar events. Endless remote calls and virtual meetings. There has been a huge effort to do as much remotely as possible. This can be good and bad… or REALLY bad if you’re not organized/tech savvy. This company and your colleagues are the best and want to see you succeed because it helps everyone. Every job has shenanigans, but if you’re willing to work hard the sky is literally the limit. You will be hard pressed to find better benefits or culture anywhere!

Good company, used to be great.

Company needs to do a better job of valuing employees. We’re bleeding employees to competitors. Work-life balance is abysmal. Salaries are not competitive with industry competitors.

Worked to death.

Run by managers who expect the world and aren't willing to give back. Assignments come from an engineering genius who hasn' t time to explain how to do them.

Retired in 2017

When I was part of FM Global mine was an excellent experience and I have very little negative to say. Apparently things have changed but all I have are fond memories of interesting things to see and do, world travel, fun annual kickoff meetings in Baltimore, comprehensive training opportunities in Norwood, and many sleepless nights writing really long, detailed reports within 5 days. It was fun and I miss it.


A good group of people with the same objectives


Long reports due in the office in 5 days
