    I have been working at Federal-Mogul as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with small team. Started contributing right away. Boss wasn't always looking over my shoulder. Flexible work-time (aka can come in between 6:30 and 8:30). Pay was high for the job I was doing since it didn't feel like I needed a degree to do the work.

    Cons

    Too easy. Everyone seemed unmotivated. The company seemed to be in a slow period so occasionally we would have a week with almost no work. Did not feel like there was much room to move up in the company (hired externally). Watched a lot of employees leave during my summer there.

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

    Pros

    I worked with some good people, but few appreciated the contribution of my colleagues and me. Federal-Mogul Powertrain is more stable and the CEO is a good guy, who is well liked.

    Cons

    Motorparts CEO is is Carl Icahn's guy. He'll probably be good for the business but will leave a wake of bodies. He is smart and could be likable if he cared about others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect.

    The pay is low and management is more worried about their bonuses than they are the employees on the floor

    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in Plymouth, MI

    I worked at Federal-Mogul as an intern (less than an 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.
