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

Current Employee - Finance Manager in Dearborn, MI

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

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 ManagementAdvice

Walk the walk.

    reenforce the positives. team work. everybody has a major or minor role in the success of the company. remember constant success breeds dynasty.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large corporation that carries great benefits and salaries, is a global thinking, green conscience, and constantly changing company. I would love nothing better than to work for them again, stay there until I couldn't work anymore.

    Cons

    The only cons for Ford Motor Company is that they fluctuate due to the economy, this is something that they cannot control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving in the direction that you are, it is wonderful to see you coming back so strong after such a terrible downswing. I would love to see more good women advance in what has always been a "good ole boy" company.
