    I have been working at Federal-Mogul full-time

    Pros

    Good pay in comparison to similar jobs in the area. Plenty vacation, PTO, and you're able to take time off without complaint. Customers and coworkers friendly. Nice work environment.

    Cons

    Lower Management is disrespectful to employees, bully and intimidate them.Need to have more patience in training new hires It's a negative climate which engenders high turnover. Discouraging.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management need to take a good look at what's going on on the floor. This could be a great place to work. Be more in tune with the employees, not only management.

    Pros

    If you like travel, you will be given the opportunity to travel globally.

    Cons

    You are required to work a lot of hours with little or no rewards and no feeling of accomplishment or progress towards the company's goals. Also, the benefits are the worst in the industry.

    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.

    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.

    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.
