    Former Employee - KVS Profile in Manitowoc, WI

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

    Pros

    They worked with my ever changing school schedule. Every 4 months i had a somewhat different schedule. The ability to be flexible.

    Cons

    Hard to switch departments. When learning a new department getting signed off takes forever. The training is spotty, depending on who you have and what department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to learn the new machines with your charges.

    Pros

    Federal Mogul still has a core of proud brands and remains an important player in the automotive parts industry. Manufacturing and product design remain strong.

    Cons

    Much of the core competency of this organization lies with the people and their expertise. This is largely unappreciated and rapidly being discarded by short-sighted management. Extremely bleak work environment with low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eventually you will realize, probably too late, that the strength of this company is in the people and the culture around the automotive industry. Unfortunately most of those people will be long gone by then.

    I worked at Federal-Mogul full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    To most employees the Company will appear organized as many somewhat autonomous manufacturing sites in distant orbits around the world headquarters in Southfield, Michigan. In the communities where these sites are based, F-M still provides relatively well-paying manufacturing jobs. That's a good thing. Nice that they haven't solely concentrated all their operations in the traditional rust-belt states of Ohio and Michigan. Enjoyed my time there. Room for professional advancement - but you had to seek it out.

    Cons

    No cons. In the end I just didn't find auto-parts interesting anymore so I left the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps make more of an effort to educate workers about all the other part of the corporation: fuel pumps, bearings, seals, filters, etc. and operations in many parts of the world. Create a program of internal ambassadors to visit other product line sites and report back to their home communities.
