    Pros

    Pay is reasonable to current market standards. Co-workers are friendly and really good people. Opportunities come up because of high turnover. Minimal politics.

    Cons

    Federal-Mogul is not the same company as when I started. Lack of direction. High turnover (especially in the last 12 months). Poor communication by management in several departments. The workload has increased drastically, which has resulted in many late nights for employees. Very poor work life balance. The benefits got drastically worse over the last two years. They are not up to par with benefits at most auto companies in the metro Detroit area.

    Advice to Management

    Communicated with your employees and address the current internal issues. If this is not done soon, expect to see more people leave the company for better opportunities.

    Pros

    The new CEO (Rainer Jueckstock) is giving business units more freedom to direct themselves. There are opportunities for advancement within the company. The company offers industry standard benefits.

    Cons

    The company is driven by shareholder value and as a result make sort term decisions that may not be in the best long term outcome. The company is an automotive company and is greatly effected by the market conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify

    Pros

    Allowed to do what was needed to correct problems as long as it was within a reasonable budget

    Cons

    Lack of respect. Management doesn't tend to listen very well.

    Advice to Management

    Quit letting a degree be the main reason that you hire and/or terminate your older more knowledgeable skill employees. Continue to get rid of your employees with expertise and you will end up with of under knowledged young professionals that can't lead.

    Pros

    Mostly Good co-workers, friendly, competent. There are many, many people on this plant that keep this plant productive and profitable dispite management. Compensations and benefits are average.

    Cons

    Management is horrid. Supervisors have been fired while having a track record of high production and good quality because they weren't writing enough reprimands. Plant manager does not have any plant meetings, does not welcome or want feedback from lower level employees on any subject. He only communicates with his hand picked yes men. He places managers in positions where they have no experience or knowledge of the process or employee tasks or skills. Competent managers, engineers and supervisors are over-ruled and not valued. Good BS slinging managers and engineers with a high-degree are in charge and no input or evaluation of past success rate is not part of who's opinion is respected. The doers do and the bullshitters rule. The people that can get things done are overloaded while the managers and bad engineers are in control of their work load. NEPOTISM is the best word for

    Advice to Management

    Get a caring, competent plant manager. Respect for the input and knowledge of all levels of employees is needed. Actually adhering to the corporate policies would be an improvement.

    Pros

    Steady work and that's about it

    Cons

    Possibility of working 7 days a week for months with no off time except if you use vacation, if you get hurt they blame it on you, not the equipment that is 15+ years old, HR doesn't care about you and they act like you are a bother to them. Overall don't do it.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.
