    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time

    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

    Cons

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

    I worked at Federal-Mogul full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Recognizable name and the automotive industry experience is nice.
    Provided training to employees

    Cons

    Management doesn't believe in a work/life balance. I was constantly getting pressure to come in eariler and work weekends.
    Machinery was old and the entire facility was filthy. I would be covered in dirt by the end of the day.
    The last straw was a passive aggressive email, I received from HR because I would take a 45 minute lunch break instead of a 30 minute lunch. SERIOUSLY!.I stay an hour over everyday & come in early and I still get this nonsense.

    Pros

    Management is wonderful to work with

    Cons

    Union shop - was told not to upset the stewards... what kind of place is this? It is a company that makes a product regardless of 'feelings'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time

    Pros

    * You'll be working with diversity of people.
    * Great to learn some new skills.
    * A quick hiring company.

    Cons

    *The Federal Mogul in Tennessee pays $10.35hr tops.
    *You'll be working plenty of overtime. It's good if you need the money. But you won't have much time off to enjoy it.
    *The company has very, very limited benefit package which you just might benefit from it.
    *You can get terminated for almost any reason without being addressed the situation.
    *Your production is the key in staying gainfully employment. Yet the management pick and chooses who stays and who goes regardless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment. I'll stay posted on how the company does in the near future.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Avilla, IN

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

    Pros

    The benefits and salary is fair. Since the plant is being moved to Juarez I am also learning that the severance package is also fair.

    Cons

    Corporate decided our plant was not a core business so they are moving the product line to Juarez so it can die (opinion). The plant has a 30-year history of dedicated / talented people, high quality products, advanced automation, and profitability. It seems so wasteful not to move new products into the facility to capitalize on all of the valuable talent and assets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most times management does not take time to truly comprehend the capabilities and accomplishments of the people that actually make manufacturing happen...a condescending nod is not true respect. When people and their efforts are reduced to mere assets employment in corporate America is no longer something to be valued.

    I worked at Federal-Mogul full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the workers are nice and there for U.

    Cons

    There is really nothing great to say about this company. They work U 7 days a week. All the time.....I was a third party supervisor and went into the company for more money and now I regret it. FM in Blacksburg, Va. Scraps so much its not even funny. They hire young people to be operators and they dont even know what they are doing. When I worked for PIC as third party we went by GM's rules and regulations. It was great. I knew what was bad and what was good. When U went into the company from a third party, the supervisor would do anything in her power to not let U make your 90 days probation period. She tried to get all the other workers to set u up and its like working for a huge hugh school so MUCH DRAMA!!!!! If they would rotate their people that have been there so long people would get days off. I have never worked for a place that was so unorganized or didnt care about their employees. But the money was good! U had to work all the time 7 days a week U had NO LIFE!
