    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.

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    Pros

    * You'll be working with diversity of people.
    * Great to learn some new skills.
    * A quick hiring company.

    Cons

    *The Federal Mogul in Tennessee pays $10.35hr tops.
    *You'll be working plenty of overtime. It's good if you need the money. But you won't have much time off to enjoy it.
    *The company has very, very limited benefit package which you just might benefit from it.
    *You can get terminated for almost any reason without being addressed the situation.
    *Your production is the key in staying gainfully employment. Yet the management pick and chooses who stays and who goes regardless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment. I'll stay posted on how the company does in the near future.

    Pros

    A great place for an engineer to grow and learn. Very flexible hours if you work in engineering (salaried). Down to earth management team at Athens

    Cons

    Hours can be long. (Most manufacturing environments are). No cons that I can think of right off the bat about working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue heading in the direction you're going now
