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

    Pros

    Set-schedule, can learn new skills, ability to promote easily, fun work environment, organized, specialized training avail, great team work

    Cons

    Very hot during summer, very dirty work, some immoral employees with small town drama, some department leads not helpful at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, Federal Mogul has been my most favorite employer. Every place has its' Pro's & Con's but for me, FM has more positive than negative. Training is great, opportunity for employee growth and promotion is great, pay could be better but considering the small town and its' cost of living-not bad pay. Need to further crack down on random drug testing and immoral employee/lead/supervisor behavior. Also should accept re-hires after certain time-frame

    Pros

    A great place for an engineer to grow and learn. Very flexible hours if you work in engineering (salaried). Down to earth management team at Athens

    Hours can be long. (Most manufacturing environments are). No cons that I can think of right off the bat about working here.

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are more than fair compared to other companies

    Cons

    Depending on department and supervisor the opportunities to advance are still geared to who you know, hard working people are more than often passed up for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review all employees reviews and pay to insure that they are being fairly treated.

    The company uses several different databases which make it hard to work with someone from a different department that uses a different system.

    I worked at Federal-Mogul

    Pros

    Considering all the issues facing the automotive industry, Federal-Mogul, treated their employees best of all the companies I have worked for. In terms of benefits, compensation, as well as trying to be fair to long term employees who lost money when they filed bankruptcy. Many other companies who went thru the same did not offer any benefits to help make older employees/employees with long term service close to whole.

    Cons

    Due to its size and large number of acquisitions during short period of time prior to the auto industry downturn - a lot of systems and internal administration was redundant and inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to improve the business lines and streamline the internal administration. My experience as mid-level professional was very positive. I learned a great deal in a short amount of time and it continues to influence my work now. I would recommend working for Federal Mogul to anyone who is considering them as an employer.

    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.
