    Pros

    Plenty of OT and salary is higher than most plants in area.

    Cons

    Previous Managers did not care about employees. 7 days a week, with little care for employees personal lives, and they played favorites. However, recently new management has come in where OT was reduced to 6 days a week, looking to reduce it further. Also they make effort to care for the employees and be fair to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on making the improvements that are being made.

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

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros about this company. Literally a worker got electrocuted at a machine and they made him keep working. Would not even let him go to the hospital. It is ridiculous.

    Cons

    7 days a week, you don't even have time to rest or function outside of this company. The conditions are dangerous, so if you care about yourself or your family, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Stop working people 7 days a week and let them have at least a little bit of a life! And actually try to care about your employee safety, safety is the #1 concern huh? Yeah right!

    Pros

    Coworkers make it a great place to be.

    Cons

    If you are a woman, you will not be promoted. This place is still the boys club. FMMP HR is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your talent to grow and flourish. Stop putting the people who can make a difference in a box.

    Pros

    The pay is good and the insurance is great. A lot of nice people and a few bad apples. You can work all the overtime you want and some you don’t want.

    Cons

    incredibly stressful work environment. No leadership. Management treats lower tier employees as though they are disposable. Little chance for advancement and no recognition for hard work. Too much emphasis on quantity and not quality.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter and you will see the morale skyrocket as well as a better quality product and an increase in productivity.
