    Pros

    Weekly pay, location, and benifits. They have a lot of career opportunities because they fire people due to a ridiculous point system. So, I'm not sure if that's a pro or con.

    Cons

    Filthy, dangerous conditions, VERY low pay, lazy workers, horrible management, 5 minute breaks, favoritism, they don't value their employees... I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    You don't value anyone, yet you're very successful... and that's cool, but don't have expectations that everything should run how you intend to run it. Oh, and maybe the "Manager" shouldn't express that their workers could do better elsewhere... even though it's true.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for growth
    The industry began to consolidate very recently, so there is a lot of project opportunities on the marketting side
    No "always connected" culture. When you leave, you leave.
    Those above you will actually listen and consider your project proposals

    Cons

    Health insurance leaves much to be desired.
    Sitcom jabs at corporate workplaces now hits too close to home.
    Cubicle life, unless you're in upper management, IT or Digital Media.

    Advice to Management

    Look into better and more diverse health care options. As a young person, I can get much better ($150 vs. $1400 deductable), cheaper ($200 vs. $300) insurance from the marketplace than what the company offers.

    Pros

    Pay was on time and they were so poorly managed that they would let you take extra weeks off without pay as policy, because they did not know how to budget and always ran out of money at the end of the fiscal year.

    Cons

    They love to promote butt-kissing morons. The people that actually know their jobs are disrespected and kept down. Management does not care about employee safety, health, comfort or happiness. They only look at spreadsheets and try to get the biggest bonuses they can while taking everything they can from the little guys. They are the worst managed company I have ever worked at. They want salary to collect 40 hours pay for 60 or more hours a week. They call you in on vacations without comp. They rule by threats and bullying. Management is unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Do everyone a favor, load all the upper managers in a bus and head out to a human ethics seminar and run the bus off a cliff on the way.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay and good location

    Cons

    There is nothing good about this company. Absolute bottom of the barrel. Consider this company only if you have no other option

    Advice to Management

    Man, How can you turn this company around? Getting rid of the German guy in the south field office would be a good start...

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

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with a family environment. Everyone had one goal which was to get whatever task that was at hand done.

    Cons

    The only con was basically that it was a packaging warehouse which was extremely hot during the summer and had elderly and female employees that need a better working environment in order to be more productive.

    Pay is ok. Benfits are great. Can usually get all the overtime you want.

    Rethink how you treat your employees. You treat them with respect and show them and work with them they will return the favor
