Everyone at FM is busy, its pretty constant. They are very good at what they do and truly believe in their mission statement. Its a meeting culture there, you usually have at minimum 2 meetings a day. They are trying to drive away from that by turning the IS department into an Agile space. Its New, Its innovative and very much the way of the future. The open floor plan isn't productive for everyone but absolutely promotes team work. They are accommodating when it comes to family/personal time. Overall its a really great place to work.

Working for a such a knowledgeable company has its advantages and disadvantages. Lots to learn from and adapt to but individuals can get lost in the big machine. Advancement depends on the type of manager one has. Not all managers are equipped to coach or mentor so individuals need to take it upon themselves to advance their career.

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.
