    I worked at Federal-Mogul as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I had a great time during my internship at Federal-Mogul. I gain a ton of experience bouncing between departments. I really enjoyed working with the individual managers. I was also nice about once a week I would travel to the Southfield HQ to work there for the day. And because Federal-Mogul constantly has summer interns there were plenty of people my age to work with.

    Cons

    The end of the summer intern project presentation. Seemed a bit over the top for me. It was sort of cool to see what the engineering interns were doing but it didn't really hit a cord with me.

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job 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.

    Cons

    All 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 ManagementAdvice

    Instead 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?

    I worked at Federal-Mogul full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people here are fantastic although the bosses may worry about issues that they shouldn't. If you're getting paid salary, as long as the work is getting done and it is getting done right...I don't see the problem. Training is required but tends not to be helpful most of the time. Plenty of work to go around and plenty to learn. Management listens to the requests of the workers very well and applies the changes relatively quickly.

    Cons

    Management didn't seem to have direction for the engineers. Employee development was rather lacking. Some are getting treated unfairly due to favoritism on behalf of the management. Employee laziness and lack of enthusiasm can be seen among staff. Training needs to better done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at who is doing their job and who is not and spare the workplace of the non-sense politics.

    Pros

    Good products, engineering and marketing.

    Cons

    Manufacturing capabilities and quality vary considerably from plant to plant. Cost is most important as that is still the most important factor at the customer.
