    Pros

    The products are exciting and most of the employees are passionate about the company and the automotive industry in general. The challenging work, strong benefits, flexible schedules, relaxed atmosphere, and friendly coworkers make Research & Advanced Engineering at Ford a great place to work.

    Cons

    The extremely large size of the company does lead to some amount of annoying bureaucracy; however, they seem to do a decent job with this in general. There is little turnover at the company (a positive that speaks to the quality of the organization); however, this also makes it difficult to move up quickly since there is always a large pool of talented people who have been with the company a long time.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see some more capital investment in our research facilities and office buildings as they have fallen behind and while functional are outdated and are not representative of the world class company that Ford is.

    Pros

    The company offers tuition reimbursement, flex time, and telecommuting options. Tuition reimbursement is available as soon as you start out, flex time and telecommuting need to be negotiated though. Depending on where in the company you work you can find many leading edge projects.

    Cons

    Very slow changing company culture that is outdated, the buildings are all cube farms, exercise facilities are offsite, and many buildings lack cafeterias.

    Advice to Management

    Take cues from the newer start up tech companies out there and try to design a work environment and culture closer to them. All the buildings should offer cafeteria's with decent food (try getting restaurants from the local area to come in and cook), buildings should offer a locker room at the very least. Bikes for employees to ride to the nearby restaurants would also be nice. Finally the more open areas a worksite offers the better the change of employees collaborating.

    Pros

    The finance professionals rotate to different areas of the company on a regular basis. It allows the employees to see and experience many different areas of the company.

    Cons

    The promotion process is very secretive and sometimes frustrating for those who want promotions.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency throughout the ranks is needed.

    Pros

    Finance rotational program for recent undergraduates and graduates. Young finance professionals are able to gain background in variety of fields within finance (i.e. product development, manufacturing, marketing, etc.).

    Daily interaction with other employees in different functions around the world.

    Cons

    In some roles, the work life balance can be difficult to manage.

    The work environment can be greatly improved. The buildings are very outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push hard on "One Ford" as this is a key strategy.

    Pros

    The pay is awesome co workers are nice! Cafeteria food was great!! Profit sharing is awesome. Have some really good union reps.

    Cons

    Hours may be too long for your family. Supervisor's and management are not the best. The facility needs to be shutdown and rehabilitated. Big roaches and rats that's the size of a pit bulls are in and out the building.
