    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time

    Pros

    Lots of employees that have employed there for decades. Great deal of knowledge for any one new coming in to learn from the senior employees.

    Cons

    Can be a cut throat arena. The senior employees are intimidated with anyone new coming in.
    The younger salary employees don't care who legs they cut off in order to get promoted. Very behind on LEAN and the understanding of it and how to really implement it. Management expects you to know everything when you come through the door

    Advice to Management

    Have proper training set up for anyone new coming in. Have a mentor set up for new employees

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to work. Benefits and salaries are competitive with industry standards. Definitely would recommend. Federal-Mogul is also fairly flexible.

    Cons

    Spurts of lay offs come from out of the blue. At times when open positions come up, everyone does not have a fair shot at the position.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend channeling in to employee's strengths that may help with in the company. Also more open discussions with employees regarding organizational changes.
