This is a generic discussion thread to capture comments about potential FMC layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Aren't some TechnipFMC locations union? What union are they a part of? Surely unionizing would help. We lost our bonuses forever in exchange for a one time 3% raise. How much more of this can we take?

There were some rumors about August a while ago, but I haven't heard anything new in a while. Hopefully, that means that it turned out not to be true.
The very bo-m that bolstered the US's energy independence is now making its gas-price problem much, much worse. For much of the past decade, fracking gave the US energy sector a massive tailwind. In the so-called shale revolution, fields in New... — read more
Have there been any rumors?
Seen this on Technip's quarterly report dated 4/28/2022. " North America sales and profitability grew sequentially, driven by increased drilling and completion activity and an improved pricing environment. Outside of North America, we are investing... — read more
Nobody wants to be here and they're showing it by being horrible to everybody around them. This is true for middle management and employees. People I used to consider friends have turned into strangers I can't trust not to throw me under the bus if... — read more
Maybe it would be better for the top dogs to finally start behaving responsibly towards this company and stop blaming everybody else for all the bad things that happen. What do any of us get out of placing a blame on something or someone? I get the... — read more
These last few months have been rough in the Stephenville plant. Corporate has been holding at least one hiring event a week with barely a single applicant. The management here is running established employees out the door at an alarming rate. They... — read more
And all that in the span of two managers. That shows you how important it is to promote the right people and make sure to keep them here. My first manager was friendly, encouraging, helpful, and made sure never to call out anybody in front of their... — read more
Are the rumors true? Is something coming?
What is going on with the Erie Plant. We were told there was a lot of working coming; thus, they are trying to hire for a 2nd shift. Now we are told that they are going to farm things out because we are so backed up, btw there isn't much work on the... — read more
This used to be a great place to work. Great perks, lots of room to learn, great opportunities. Now the only thing that keeps me hanging on is the money, and to be honest, it is not that great compared to other companies around my area. SVP and VP... — read more
TechnipFMC has been going downhill since the merger and Doug Pfeiderhert was put in charge. The leadership at the top pay themselves outrageous salaries for poor results. They systematically forced out all the Technip people who knew what they... — read more
Since I started working here, the atmosphere has never been worse. Most people are waiting for layoffs or looking for a way to exit. No one seems to expect or hope for anything good to happen here anymore?
Post any information about potential or actual FMC layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
TechnipFMC wants to roll out a vaccine mandate soon. It starts with asking for you to voluntarily give them your vaccine status. Then they hope to mandate it. Would you stay or leave if TFMC mandates vaccines?
I don't hate FMC as much as some of you do. The pay and benefits are decent and I work with good people so those are not the reasons why I'm considering leaving. Being constantly expected to do the work of three people is. It wasn't always like this... — read more
Between the poor leadership & not being able to ship on time it seems as though management is actively working to close the doors. The number of workers who care about their job has dwindled to a handful and even they are burnt out with constantly... — read more
I have never been happier than the moment I gave notice here. I am especially happy to have got a new job when I have already lost hope and when I thought I would have to stay here for a while longer. What will I miss? Hardly anything. Maybe I will... — read more
I left a little over half a year ago and changed the industry. While it’s better than it was here, I didn’t make a good choice so I’m looking for a new job again. Has the situation at FMC changed for the better in the meantime or is this company... — read more
The more incompetent our superiors are, the more arrogant they are. The same applies to employees as well. It seems that it is not desirable to have knowledge and expertise, because mediocrities are respected the most here. Is there any room left... — read more
Just a word of advice from a former employee. If you are a young person looking for a career DO NOT consider TechnipFMC Stephenville. They will use you until they don’t need you anymore and throw you away like an empty McDonald’s happy meal box... — read more
This company treats engineering as a commodity. Outsourcing to cheap labor markets has destroyed the life blood of TechnipFMC. Senior engineers are being forced to train their counterparts (replacements) in “GECs”. The MBAs are in charge now. Now is... — read more
No wonder, what jury is going to find a former FMC employee guilty of bringing design documents with him, when affidavits showing pretty much the entire FMC subsea technical community signed affidavits saying this novel tree design was too risky, and... — read more
He’s not even very personable. I guess his great email writing compensates for that. Definitely taking the company down though... — read more
Things have been deteriorating here for a while and people are noticing. It's been affecting productivity - it feels like no one cares anymore. There is zero motivation to do anything. I really didn't expect to see things shift so fast but they did... — read more
Curious what the rest of this article says. Maybe nothing more than the title? “TechnipFMC cut 2,000 employees in 2020 prior to spinoff”
many previous layoffs have not been about overhead at all. They have been about getting rid of people that don’t go along with the status quo. They got rid of the people that think for themselves and truly desire what’s best for the company. They... — read more
