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

    Pros

    You can gain great knowledge, experience, and skills that can be used at a good company.

    Cons

    Stop letting accountants run the company. They are the biggest group of dishonest, corrupt, and unscrupulous employees that you can have. Let engineers with manufacturing experience run the company. Engineers are smart - great problem solvers. Accountants are only out to save their skins and will do anything to accomplish this goal.

    Advice to Management

    Sell out. Even Carl Icahn has dumped you. Not a good sign. Losers!

    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time

    Pros

    -Opportunities for advancement: It is not hard to move around within a facility, and just as easy to relocate. Federal-Mogul does try and keep their people within the company. Tuition re-imbursement and accredited apprenticeships (when available).
    -Okay work environment: Most other salary members work well together. Most hourly workers are good, honest and helpful people.
    -Merit: If you keep your nose to the grindstone and contribute to the team effort, there is no reason you will not advance well. I have had consistent merit increases over inflation for a number of years.
    -Work/Life balance: Be expected to work whatever hours are necessary at any time of the day/night. Management will flex with you to make it balance out, and without fuss. Most salary functions are cross trained enough to allow vacations, comp time and emergency situations occur without adding additional stress.

    Cons

    -Benefits are not on par. High premiums, not much company-match.
    -Culture: Staff level members have some the favoritism and eye-for-eye antics that is typical in the automotive world, but it is nothing like the very large corporations. The culture is 20 years behind, and not much credence is given to getting with the times.
    -Note that dead weight is still kept, too. Ineffective people are just moved to less significant roles. There doesn't seem to be an improvement initiative to get these people going. I frequently see duties or work handed off to others so it is completed, but no recourse for the bums. It is straight out of a Dilbert comic.
    -Senior management has no long term plan for this company. It would appear that they are too busy plugging holes.

    Advice to Management

    More resources (read: training) are needed to focus on efficiencies. The voids appear to filled with another warm body.
    Strategy: Where is Federal-Mogul headed? It feels like it is being driven off a cliff. This gives a sense of instability, which will drive people away from this company.
