    Everyone felt unmotivated. They seem to hire secondary level workers.

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with small team. Started contributing right away. Boss wasn't always looking over my shoulder. Flexible work-time (aka can come in between 6:30 and 8:30). Pay was high for the job I was doing since it didn't feel like I needed a degree to do the work.

    Cons

    Too easy. Everyone seemed unmotivated. The company seemed to be in a slow period so occasionally we would have a week with almost no work. Did not feel like there was much room to move up in the company (hired externally). Watched a lot of employees leave during my summer there.

    The pay is low and management is more worried about their bonuses than they are the employees on the floor

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive but lots of turmoil in recent frequent changing of top / middle management.

    Cons

    Benefits are crazy expensive compared to other companies I have worked for. No jean / casual Fridays and stuffy atmosphere. No options to work from home...at least from my current leadership.

    Pros

    They hire all C- students who just don't want to work. No one is motivated to be good because everyone is average. The don't have any perks and pay a lot for insurance.

    Cons

    Everybody knows they don't have any rules on how to do any tasks. Everyone has been working their since Moses was a baby and don't want to change or do anything different. Even the office is old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the old-timers and get all new people. It shouldn't be too hard with all the people out of work in Detroit.
