Former Employee - Zone Manager
Former Employee - Zone Manager

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

Pros

Great opportunity for recent grads especially the Ford College Graduate Program; good benefits/perks especially in the Marketing, Sales, and Service organization (sales car/work from home/management-level responsibility; quality training available in-house and through external programs; global company so opportunities exist for global placement; competitive salaries (MUST negotiate ALWAYS)

Cons

lack of "true" diversity in management(including lack of appreciation for diverse thought); Still very "good 'ol boy"/"frat boy" style mentality (golf & beer buddies rule and are advanced accordingly); no formal career development program (on paper/documented policy yet not utlized or implemented); local supervisors/managers not held accountable on performance reviews for genuine people development;

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to invest in all your employees instead of just your "golf buddies". If you keep the process fair and equitable, Ford will become what it fictiously presents itself to be: a truly diverse company that encourages and rewards innovation at all levels.
