Pretty Good Place to Work

Engine Development Technician (Current Employee)
Auburn Hills, MI

I have been working at FEV, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFEV has a nice laid back atmosphere. The pay and benefits are very competitive. The projects are very diverse since work is not based on just a single manufacturer or supplier.

ConsBeing a smaller company, FEV can not afford to use cutting edge equipment at all times so you will be forced to work with equipment that is functional and accurate but not exactly modern.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe a little more transparent with lower level employees.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great introduction to an office environment

Engineering Assistant (Former Employee)
Auburn Hills, MI

I worked at FEV, Inc. as an intern for more than a year

ProsThis was my first internship, while I was studying at Kettering University. It was very easy to get used to the atmosphere and dynamics of the office. I felt appreciated and generally had enough to keep me busy. The guys in the shop area were also very welcoming and I really enjoyed learning from their years of expertise.

ConsAs this was my first internship, I expected to be guided and mentored. This was not the case all the time as I had to find things out the "hard way." Being so young it would have been nice to have a little more guidance, although the hand's off approach did prepare me for the future. Also the upper management was not very tactically or politically saavy. At one of the town hall meetings the CEO of North America stated, "There are thousands of people lining up to take your job, so if you want to leave there's the door." Much of this seemingly cold and unattached sentiment probably came from the sad state of the economy at the time.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere could have been a better plan in place for the internship progress. Also better communication and empathy for employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Looking for experience , this is the place

Engineering Assistant (Current Employee)
Auburn Hills, MI

I have been working at FEV, Inc. as an intern for less than a year

Proswhatever you do in FEV are Pros. It s very good learning experience and you will be give full responsibility of the project if you show you have the potential to handle it all on your own.

ConsVery less growth in the organization. Most of the work is done by intern and there is less chance to convert the intern to full-time as they always have students from Aachen University, Germany available at lower labor cost.

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

A great company to move through

Design & Release Engineer (Former Employee)
Auburn Hills, MI

I worked at FEV, Inc. as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThere is a chance to work with a very bright and diverse set of engineers. It is a great environment to develop new skill sets and establish networks with similar individuals

ConsAs this was a contract position, it was known to be a very temporary assignment, so networking was very important to keep my options open.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you plan to keep some high-value people on at the end of a contract, you need to be sure to have a concrete plan in place and clearly communicated to foster a sense of security and larger purpose.
