    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. High pay to get employees in the door.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Different organizations not set up to work with each other. Old automotive culture and politics make it hard to work with other people. Everything moves slowly. Management isn't willing to change anything, including the crappy buildings and working conditions. If you are able to find a water fountain, you won't want to drink out of it.

    If you are young and want to work in a fast-paced, progressive atmosphere. This is not the place.

    Current Intern - Purchasing Intern in Dearborn, MI

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was exciting to see the new cars coming out. Working in a team and understanding the purchasing department at such a large company

    Cons

    It was hard to get answers for questions to complete my project. Make sure your supervisors are present and helping you when you need. Other employees were reluctant to help due to getting in trouble because they didn't know you etc. The project I was working on was very unplanned and difficult to complete due to lack of resources and a direct focus of what the project was to be about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more prepared for your interns and have their projects understood and easy to work with. Also don't have a supervisor be up for promotion and dump his intern half way through the summer

    Pros

    People you work with are like family.

    Cons

    Political and Male Dominated.. Lacks opportunity for female advancement and equal pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your designs to compete with the rest of the industry. Lower your prices, improve your gas mileage and quality. This is the feedback I get from neighbors and acquaintances. I can't sell your cars.

    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Dearborn, MI
    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Dearborn, MI

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

    Pros

    I think they provide a decent salary. I have looked at a job at a bank in Pittsburgh and top of the salary range was 30K less than I was making at the time.They have profit sharing. Management has the option to lease vehicles with unlimited mileage and includes insurance. The only other thing I can think of is that they allow you to telecommute one or two days a week and provide alternative work weeks such as 4 10 hour days with a day off.

    Cons

    Very political. Not a lot of cooperation between groups. Really no career path. They seem to favor the systems engineers in distributed and server support. In twelve years only one mainframe engineer was promoted to a technical specialist. Lots and lots of bureaucracy and process. For example, to obtain a server, you have to go through 4 different processes, one of which, took a year to get approved. Lousy work environment. Very dirty. Probably the worst office area I ever worked in my 30+ years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you value your senior employees. Eliminate the bureaucracy. Absolutely too much process and they keep on adding more. Over 12 months working on getting a server and still don't have it, just ridiculous.

    Pros

    High access to new development and innovation. Focus to goals. High opportunities to develop engineering skills applicable to broad areas.

    Need to become less bureaucratic and aim towards lean.
