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

Pros

Great coworkers, opportunity for relocation, can work in a multitude of different positions and have varied experiences. Good company to have on your resume as a Fortune 10 company. Also good experience working with the 6-Sigma methodology

Cons

Politics, politics, politics. Since mass layoffs occurred in 2009 and again in 2011, opportunities have declined. We are operating at the same sales/receivable level with 2/3 of the former staff --- longer hours, more responsibility. Why a company that requires workers to work 60 hours a week to complete their job functions thinks they can cut staff by 2/3 and still remain sucessfull is beyond me. If you work hard and are a top performer, don't expect to get promoted --- that goes to the people who know the right managers. Seen plenty of people promoted to the top echelons just based on superficial attitudes and low quality work. This is not my personal complaint, this is discussed every day with coworkers from throughout the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Know what your employees are doing, look at their accomplishments and work quality. Listen and don't assume you know what is going on in your department.

    Pros

    Peoduct doing well in market

    Cons

    Focus is on hiring young / recent graduates or cheap labor outsourced from India. No value to heavily experienced lateral job seekers. Organization hierarchy takes decades to cross and reach management level in career.
