  5. A very good place to work if your local mgmt is visionary and hard-working

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very family-friendly employer... mgmt understands if you have to pick up sick child from school, etc, as long as you get your work done and are motivated. I work in product development on advanced powertrain designs, and the middle management is very hard-working, relatively visionary, and sensible. It's a very collaborative and helpful work environment. There are many experts whose friendly demeanor makes it easy to learn and grow. There is a strong "can-do" attitude where I work. Mgmt in my organization is open-minded to feedback and suggestions on how to improve procedures, designs, etc.

    Cons

    Cost drives every decision and many times seems to be the only factor when selecting components/designs. Product strategists can often be obtuse about advanced technology/ideas and squelch creativity, despite the executive management's stated commitments to innovation... it seems they want to be the first company to offer exciting new features (e.g., SYNC, aluminum F150, etc), but internally it seems many of strategists consider features only after the competition offers them... which resembles a "follower" attitude, not that of a leader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mgmt needs to welcome and foster innovation at all levels of the company, not simply in a specific organization. Good ideas can come from anywhere in a company. And before killing new feature development based on cost, understand that the customer may be willing to pay more for desirable features... so more customer clinics and data should be gathered first.

    Pros

    Good enterprise company. Good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Career advancement is not consistent within each department/organization. Some department would retain the staffs at all cost including blocking you for lateral moves. Upward mobility is difficult unless you are part of good old boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep staying in the right course!

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent challenges as Ford has recovered from the last downturn. Many new hires and new assignments. Decent pay and benefits. You get to focus on a few vehicles and the plants building them. New CEO is great, and the company is striving to keep abreast of all the latest technologies. General atmosphere is optimistic.

    Cons

    Sometimes long travel time working out at plant sites during new product launches. Work life balance can get tricky. Most growth is overseas, not in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify some of your products so they are less complex to build. Sometimes too much choice is not worth it.
