    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the past Federal Mogul had great products, but with the milking of the business to artificially prop-up the bottom line, the portfolio is in a serious state of decline.

    Cons

    Incompetent, back-stabbing leadership has destroyed moral, severally damaged the portfolio, and continues reducing benefits and employment as a means to mask their extreme poor performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For both CEOs inclusive of their Staffs - Look in the mirror, acknowledge to yourself what a failure you are, and then resign to provide any hope that the company may be saved.

    Current Intern - Engineering Test Lab in Ann Arbor, MI

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul as an intern (less than a 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.
