At Ford, we go further to make our cars better, our employees happier and our planet a better place to be.
A Foundation for Success
Ford is dedicated to building great products to strengthen our business and benefit our communities.
Ford is committed to developing great products for customers around the world. In 2014, we are introducing 23 new vehicles globally. Ford saw the largest percentage point gain in U.S. market share among automakers in 2013. In addition, Ford F-Series was the best-selling vehicle in the United States for the 32nd year in a row and Ford Focus was the best-selling nameplate in the world. With the freshest car portfolio in the industry and a commitment to deliver continuous improvement for fuel economy, Ford is well positioned in the global marketplace.
Great vehicles are great for drivers everywhere, and that’s the foundation of our business’s strength. To meet demand, Ford is in the midst of its most ambitious manufacturing expansion in 50 years. We’re increasing capacity in the United States and adding plants around the world.
We’re growing without sacrificing profits. In the past year, we’ve continued to fund our employee pension plans worldwide, delivered record profit-sharing contributions to our U.S. hourly employees and doubled our shareholder dividend.
Our work doesn’t stop with our products and our bottom line. An integral part of the Ford team’s DNA is ‘people serving people.’ That’s why our global brand promise is called Go Further – we go further so you can.
We’re helping to solve global challenges linked to economic development, energy security and environmental sustainability. In 2013, for example, Ford globally reduced the amount of water it used to produce each vehicle by 30 percent compared to a 2009 baseline, reaching its goal two years ahead of schedule. Plans are under way to set new long-term goals.
Community service is an important part of Ford’s heritage and always has been. The Ford Volunteer Corps will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2015. Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services has donated more than $1.5 billion in its 65-year history.
Within our Sustainability report, our Blueprint for Mobility envisions the future of transportation, in which vehicles communicate with each other and the world around them to make driving safer, easier and more efficient. Our Blueprint for Sustainability goes beyond improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions to define sustainability as a business model that creates value by preserving and enhancing environmental, social and financial capital.
When you work on the Ford team, you’re not just making quality automobiles; you’re building a future that’s as strong and attainable as our products.
At Ford, we're dedicated to providing continuous improvements to everyone associated with our business – our employees, customers and communities. When you join the Ford family, you become a part of this global transformation.
And no matter which career path you choose, you and your team will go further each day to deliver great products, build a strong business and contribute to a better world. Here are a few examples of how we go further at Ford:
The Ford Quality team travels the globe to train more than 20,000 employees on reliable processes that deliver great vehicles for customers to appreciate and enjoy.
The Cincinnati regional office team goes further for children in their community by supporting the One Way Farm, which provides love and support to thousands of homeless children. To prepare for the non-profit organization’s yearly Daylily Sale, the Cincinnati Ttam cultivated hundreds of plants.
The Ford Design team invited input from around the globe to make the new Fusion/Mondeo a world-class leader in driver comfort and convenience features, which compliment its EcoBoost engine, PowerShift and safety technologies. This collaboration has made “global design DNA” a reality at Ford.
People Helping People
The Ford Purchasing team came together with their suppliers to battle Thailand’s 50-year floods. The Ford team worked with Navy divers to minimize the impact on the business, rowing boats to pull tools out of the river, and getting those tools back into production quickly.
When you join Ford Motor Company, your journey begins. You become part of skilled and motivated teams making inspired products that create a better world. If that sounds extraordinary to you, you may have just reached the end of your career search.

Throughout the history of Ford Motor Company, inclusion has been as much a part of the company's success as the great products our diverse employee base has created.
Ford is a leader in diversity & inclusion, and both remain key Ford business strategies. You’ll find diversity at every level of the company, from the boardroom to the design studio, from the plant floors to the engineering centers. Ford’s senior executive leadership team fully endorses this model and takes great pride in celebrating our workforce that reflects the society in which we live and work. Our diversity makes us a better company, a stronger company, by bringing in fresh ideas, perspectives, experiences and life responsibilities, and by fostering a truly collaborative workplace.
When we say that Ford is a leader in diversity, this isn't just our opinion. We have received numerous awards in recent years from publications and organizations recognizing the value the company places on building a diverse and inclusive culture.

For more than two decades, our ERGs have provided support, outreach and development to all employees. Ford's current ERG's inlcude:

Ford's Proud History of Inlcusion
Ford Motor Company has a proud history of supporting the military, dating as far back as 1919, when Henry Ford began to hire disabled veterans returning from World War I. This philosophy of inclusion made the company one of the first to hire people with disabilities, adapting the work environment to their specific needs. Henry Ford also honored these veterans by organizing a caravan of 50 Model Ts to take them to a convention in San Francisco.
During World War II, Ford Motor Company shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all of its resources to Allied war efforts. After the war, Henry Ford’s grandson, Henry Ford II, made a practice of integrating returning veterans into the workplace, which is still a vital priority at Ford.
Today, Ford Motor Company continues to support our military, taking special care of those troops whom we employ. Here, veterans have the opportunity to bring their unique skills to such varied automotive industry sectors as information technology, product development, marketing and more.
It’s our privilege to invite veterans to develop their career aspirations to Ford, where we foster an inclusive culture - free of barriers - and all employees are included, respected and appreciated.

I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than a year)Pros
Excellent work/life balance, people are very exciting to work with, great opportunities to be involved in a wide range of divisions such as media, marketing, product development, etc. Willing to let you travel for work or work from home. Products are exciting.Cons
Pay isn't extremely compelling compared to others, often times different divisions silo tasks, way too many meetings, large lack of task accountability when it comes to next step so more meetings get created, because a lot of the engineering is supplier-based there is less hands-on engineering in product development BUT it is present in research and launch duties.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Tell the lower managers to take more direct responsibility for tasks so as to lessen the amount of meetings required to complete a task. Don't involve as many lower level engineers in meetings they don't need to be in.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
