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

    Pros

    The upper managers in Waupun are never there so it's pretty flexible for the rest of us. Guess that's work life balance? Only by default...

    Cons

    The morale is terrible, it's a dead end job,
    People hate the managers
    HR has gone downhill.
    Nobody listens to the employees anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe start recognizing high potential people based on merit instead of who can schmooze the best with vendors.

    I worked at Federal-Mogul full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, some chances for promotions. Used to hold employee appreciation events, cookouts, company picnics, and Christmas parties.

    Cons

    Ownership went through several different hands until they finally decided it would be cheaper labor to send everything to Mexico. So 95 people lost their jobs.

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

    Pros

    Great people, interesting job, really enjoyed traveling to customer's business. Company Car & Gas card. Solving customer's problems and presenting Federal Mogul products was really a fun job.

    Cons

    Company smaller than you would think. Control really boils down to one man who holds a majority of Federal Mogul stock. They hire often but lay off just as often for no apparent reason.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great but they really have very little control over the way the company is run.
