Ask our people about what they love about working at FCM and they’ll all say they love their team and the environment here. What makes it so great? Here’s just six of the many reasons why.
6 reasons why employees love our culture
It's in our DNA. For our teams and clients. Face-to-face meetings will always be part of working life, but that doesn’t mean forcing our team to be in the office 9-5 every day. In the Universum 2002 Top 100 Ideal Employer Rankings, students listed their top preference in an employer as an encouraging work-life balance, so it’s top priority in the workplace now. We trust you to work days at home to save on your commute, or to log off early if we’ll see you online later in the day. In that environment, there’s more time for creative thinking and flexibility to tackle any challenge and disruption that comes our way.
Management are not sat in their glass corner office. You'll see our leaders in the office all the time, interacting with the team and understanding business needs. Our flat management structure means everyone has access not just to their leader, but any leader in the company. Socialising with everyone and listening in on the pressing topics of the day.
You can be yourself
You should never feel you have to tone down “being you” at work. Our employees don’t have to put on a corporate face – they love that they can be themselves and share their true self with colleagues. From the way you talk to your dress sense and how you define yourself, we welcome you! You're in a safe space with us.
It’s all about social
It's not all work and no play. A big part of working at FCM is getting to know your team in and outside of the workplace. There's always a lot going on, from dinners and drinks on our team buzz nights, to team sailing trips and treasure hunts with our hotel suppliers. Don't worry that it will take away your free time; we do as much as we can during working hours, and nothing’s forced.
Travel lover? You're in the right place. We’re a company of travellers; our parent company’s vision is “To open up the world for those who want to see”.
We’ll make sure there’s an opportunity to get together. When border rules permit, there’s our flyaway summer parties in Hong Kong to Bali and Japan. And every year, we hold the ultimate travel party called Global Gathering. It's a gathering of thousands of high-performing Flighties (that’s what we call ourselves), flying out to celebrate our achievements. Locations have included Las Vegas, Berlin, Macau and Hawaii plus many more!
We saved the best for last. For the majority of our people, our favourite thing about the company is...each other. Our teams are diverse and welcoming. You'll really get to know your teammates here, not just the job they do and through the meetings you have. Work's more fun when your team are more your friends than coworkers.
Do you have a positive attitude and want to enjoy time with your team?
