Good people, good pay, very easy to fall off the advancement track without even noticing

Pros

Very big company, lots and lots and lots of opportunities in many different fields, you will like your colleagues. You will like more than half of your direct bosses. People who love cars will love working here, and people who are not car nuts will also love it.

Cons

A small number of your direct bosses will be evil backstabbing jerks. A small number of your direct bosses will be completely ignorant. It is not possible to avoid these people, as you will have a new boss every year or two. The hierarchy is immense and the in-fighting among executives and managers at all levels is simply unbelievable. Machiavelli would feel completely at home.

Advice to Management

Walk the walk.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, including new vehicles every year for senior management; great CEO (but most of his direct reports are weak); good growth opportunities for people that work hard

    Cons

    Multiple layers of management makes decision-making slow; preserve your job vs. risk-taking among senior management; crazy work hours due to endless meetings (they have meetings to prepare for meetings!)

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the management layers, so decisions can be made in a timely manner; empower employees; reduce the meetings!; implement HR policies to reduce the influence of individual managers in hiring/promotion decisions


  2. honor and privelege to work for ford. it's like getting a congressional medal of honor.
