    I have been working at UCI-FRAM Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, friendly operators, moneys decent

    Cons

    Training needs work, turnover rate is high

    Advice to Management

    Allow operators to be trained instead of just throwing them on a job

    I worked at UCI-FRAM Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    UCI Fram division medical and dental benefits and health care, 401K, prescription drug plan, typical two week vacation to start.

    Cons

    Poor vision and strategic plan. No leadership mentorship or employee development. No employee recognition program. No tuition assistance for employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Equipment capabilities, technical integration and teamwork drive customer satisfaction (internal and external). This is a corollary to product quality and Quality Management Systems.

    Pros

    Co-workers that did day today work were fantastic to work with. Lots of business growth potential.

    Cons

    Terrible senior leadership, Being owned by an equity firm - especially one that had no vehicular background was a disaster. Recent events (bankruptcy, separation of Champ & Fram) have borne out the incompetence of senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people at the day-to-day level that actually make the company move - in spite of all the self inflicted roadblocks you put in front of them. Don't even think of expanding internationally until you get the Fram brand perception straightened out - and that means stop sourcing crap from China!

    I have been working at UCI-FRAM Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, match 5% 401K. Feel supported by the company. My bosses are great and never overbearing. I feel trusted to do my job here.

    Cons

    It is a fairly traditional work environment. Not a lot of young people here besides me, but that's only because people tend to stick around. Not a ton of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advise. Keep up the good work and keep supporting your employees so they will do good work for the company.

    Pros

    Too many negatives when your a company on the verge of bankruptcy. The only thing pro would be stay clear of this company.

    Cons

    Too many Cons to list... Poor product, poor management, a follower culture, far from and never will be an innovator or leader. Management are low lifes at best, lie and back stab their employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your ride on the Titanic...
