    Alan Mulally's mindset has not filtered down to the shop floor.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The new CEO is a non automotive guy and that's a positive. Hopefully he can break the mold and the mindset that infects the automotive industry.

    Cons

    The old guard are still set in their ways. I guess they never received Mulally's memo about changing the way they operate on the floor.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Great work-life balance.
    2) People are quite helpful in general and a good focus is laid on development of the individual.
    3) Employees are reasonably protected from Ford's performance globally.
    4) Good senior management with an excellent drive.
    5) Initial growth is slow, but once you establish yourself and show potential, you move up really fast and exciting opportunities open up.

    Cons

    1) Too many mediocre people clogging up positions in middle management with no hope of ever going into top management. Shouldn't they move on?
    2) Excessive emphasis on positive morale makes you giggle when people get 'recognized' even while doing nothing significant. Disagreement is a strict no-no and constructive criticism is generally taken as challenging authority (although this would depend on the individual, my manager and director are cool people).
    3) Heavily bureaucratic on an average.
    4) The recruitment system needs a complete overhaul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul recruitment
    Up or out system
    We're in 2013, not in 1922.
