Used to be a good place to work
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Johnston, RIMarch 20, 2019
There have been recent changes in the company that have left many people with low morale

My main issue with FM Global is that it promotes the idea that it treats its employees well, yet there are many managers that are ineffective and/or verbally abusive and HR is completely ineffective with helping.

In general, the managers stay and continue their behavior, and the employees either stay and are unhappy or leave. Internal promotions are rare, at least in my department. The company gives lip service to diversity but the ones in charge don't have diverse backgrounds and believe hiring women over men is all that needs to be done.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Abusive managers are tolerated

SENIOR ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Parsippany, NJAugust 27, 2018
FM Global is a great company to work for. They provide excellent benefits with a total reward package. They appreciate family first attitude and work with employees going through a difficult time. They even provide an outsource for mental and physical needs. They help with adoptions and such too.

Great Company - Poor Management
Client Processing Associate (Former Employee) –  Woodland Hills, CAAugust 21, 2018
Great company to work for. Unfortunately, not all locations are the same and I wasn't fortunate enough to work at a well balanced environment. Very competitive, toxic employees, and excessive micromanagement. If you like this line of business, I highly recommend the company because its benefits and career advancement. Good school for the business itself. However, the workplace environment is poor and hard to work with.
Pros
Great benefits and the opportunity of advancement
Cons
Toxic environment

Great benefits. No longer a secure company. Very poor, archaic management.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Johnston, RIJuly 23, 2018
They will get you interested with the great benefits package, but this company is no longer secure or a very good environment to work in. Management style is archaic, inept and the company is peppered with nepotism. They hired McKinsey to come in and get them ready for agile. The outcome was to layoff many employee's, even though there was no need to at all. Many were over 40 and are very good at what they do. This has negatively affected morale and productivity greatly. They put the entire IS department through a lot during the process. They eliminated over 150 jobs and made everyone re-apply for their old job, knowing very well who they were planning on letting go, regardless of the outcome of the interview. Yet, they kept nearly all the managers, many of which are quite inept. They laid off too many people for the work load and worse yet, they aren't ready for agile. It is clear management made these decisions too quickly and with no real plan surrounding resources in place. Managements expectations of IS are unrealistic. The open floor seating is horrible and makes it hard to concentrate. Zero privacy. No work from home policy. Things seem to be getting worse, not better. The pension isn't worth it. Sad that this is no longer the company it used to be.
Pros
Pension and 401K match are good. Vacation buy offered.
Cons
Archaic management style, inept management, too much nepotism, don't care about employees enough, poor raises, no work from home policy

FM Global is a great place to work for and they care about employees benefits and families
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Johnston, RIJune 22, 2018
A day at work can change from day to day in that there are daily jobs as well as weekly and monthly jobs that must be done. It is a highly diversified company where you are interacting with people within the companies in addition to external companies and required government reporting. This is a global company and there was always new things to learn. I enjoyed working for them where we all worked as a team.
Pros
great benefits and family friendly
Cons
long hours December through end of January every year

Large company with laid back culture
Consultant Engineer (Current Employee) –  Frisco, TXJune 5, 2018
FM Global is a good company to work for, and the benefits are excellent. Work hours are extremely flexible, and I am able to work from home a majority of the time. The company provides cars and all needed equipment to their field engineers, and they also cover all gas and toll road costs.
The company culture is relaxed overall, although the Dallas is office is more regimented than the company at large. The people working there are generally friendly. However, the job requires a lot of travel, so it can be difficult to make strong connections if you are not careful.
Pros
Great benefits, company car, very flexible work schedule, home office
Cons
Too much travel, lower pay than other engineering jobs in the area, difficult to make and maintain connections within the company

Awsome place to work
Senior Account Engineer (Current Employee) –  Norwood, MAApril 24, 2018
This is a place where I see more people committed to a company and wiliness to advance if the individual desires. A person can stay in a post for as long as they like, The training is key, the best I have had both in content and delivery.

It is not for all, hard work is expected and most of the time it is hard to leave since you want enjoy the work. The work culture is great.
Pros
Training, Travel, Benifits, and culture
Cons
long hours, travel, unexpected deadlines.

Ability to Work on Job to gain the experience to move forward
Lead Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Johnston, RI 02919April 5, 2018
As being a long term employee, I really had a good experience with the organization until I was forced into a situation based on reorg that was uncomfortable for me. Felt like I was being pushed out because of not gelling with new management. Then became ill so that was added and had issues with trying to get back on board after 30 years. Feel like it was a no win situation.
Pros
Benefits, Good working relationships for most part, ability to move up at points
Cons
Had to accept change even if a difficult situation of clashing personalities.

Good people
Slot Attendant (Former Employee) –  West Glocester, RIFebruary 15, 2018
Generally a good place to work. Interesting, challenging work with smart and thoughtful colleagues. Oddly manages to be highly bureaucratic and often poorly organized at the same time. System protection flows only one way, though; get a bad supervisor and you are virtually powerless. Strong respect for work/life balance and generally very good benefits, which make the mediocre salary stretch much farther.

Underwritting (Former Employee) –  Johnston, RIJanuary 18, 2018
Great company and great benefits. My experianance and opinion on management/advancement is that if you're not a bosses "favorite" you'll get no where no matter how hard you work.
