    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 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.
