    Accounting/Finance

    Accounting Finance Manager (Current Employee) Southfield, MI

    ProsJob Security- Won't get rid of anyone in Finance due to them not being able to find anyone to fill all of their open positions.
    Its almost like working at a Bank where everyone is a VP. At FM everyone is a Manager, yet they do non manager type work.

    ConsAll you need to do is look at all of the job openings in Metro Detroit for this organization. You will see the same positions open for multiple months. If you don't believe me, look up non Director Level employees at company and see how many ex-employees left after staying less than 2 years and look where they went afterwards (GM, Chrysler, Ford, Magna, TRW, Bosch). On to bigger and better more stable companies.
    Medical benefits for family of 4 for high deductible plan around $450 and if you have more than 2 kids, you will be assessed an extra charge.
    Company in Business for over 100 years, yet they don't have policies, standards or procedures for the simplest of things. How can anyone explain this for a company of this size and age?

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of waiting for an employee to put in 2 weeks notice and then asking what can we do to keep you and offering to match salary and bonus, try figuring out which employees you need and or want to keep and ask them about concerns.
    I don't care what kind of desk or how much filing cabinet space I have in the new building, I want to know what the direction of division is and what my role is.
    Its been over a 18 months since VCS/PT split, and VCS still has no organizational charts. How can you not know what your employees roles are and how the company is going to function after all this time?

    Federal-Mogul...look further

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsBenefits 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Old company, old way of doing things

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Southfield, MI

    ProsThey 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.

    ConsEverybody 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 Senior ManagementGet 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good if you just want a job.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Smyrna, TN

    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 Senior ManagementNo comment. I'll stay posted on how the company does in the near future.

    Great learning environment!

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsA 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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue heading in the direction you're going now

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Plant left to die.

    Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) Avilla, IN

    ProsThe benefits and salary is fair. Since the plant is being moved to Juarez I am also learning that the severance package is also fair.

    ConsCorporate decided our plant was not a core business so they are moving the product line to Juarez so it can die (opinion). The plant has a 30-year history of dedicated / talented people, high quality products, advanced automation, and profitability. It seems so wasteful not to move new products into the facility to capitalize on all of the valuable talent and assets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMost times management does not take time to truly comprehend the capabilities and accomplishments of the people that actually make manufacturing happen...a condescending nod is not true respect. When people and their efforts are reduced to mere assets employment in corporate America is no longer something to be valued.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
