I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than an year)

Pros

good technical experience, figuring out what the root cause of a problem was (this was around 2001) FCG program was a good experience.

Cons

management would not keep their promises. deadweight people. lack of priorities for the overall company. other engineers and mgmt like to blame the union workers for all quality problems. but they don't complain when they get all those vacation days! (i was not on the line or in the union)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hopefully you understand the technical parts of what your workers do. stop letting the accountants run the company.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, great people, challenging buy only if you want it to be. Room for advancement, especially if you know someone.

    Cons

    Terrible Union, they no longer put the employee rights or look to motivate good working employees, they continue to protect the employee that is unrulely and constently gets into trouble. Instead of working to get some of our benefits and perks back they spend all there time trying to get fired employees their job back. ( there is a reason they were fired ). Never seen a place of business that places people in management position that have no idea what there employees do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some people in management that have a clue what the people they supervise do.
