I have been working at Ford Motor Company

Pros

Fairly compensated for job, great benefits, work life balance.

Cons

General salary roll employees are stuck in the middle between the Union and Management. While the Union takes more and more, and Management screws up the Company the little guys like us are left cleaning up the messes and doing all the work. And we are the ones losing our benefits, raises and bonuses year after year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Alan - your Managers still don't get ONE Ford - please bust the Union and teach managers to being such prima donnas and learn to roll model ONE Ford behaviors.

    Pros

    great job security, benefits are good, they are quality focused. They care about the customer and strive to do better.

    Cons

    Long hours are required, little advancement in this position. This is bottom level position that does not get much credit or respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to involve lower level to get insight to prevent manufacturing problems. Treat people with respect that build the vehicles, we are all working for a common goal of building the best vehicles for the world.

    Not bad for a big, old-line manufacturing company

    Pros

    The size and scope of Ford ensures that you can get a broad experience in a number of areas. Ford strongly believes in rotations, so you will see many aspects of the business. They are also very strong believers in work-life balance.

    In IT, you will have the opportunity to work with just about every platform imaginable, on a scale found few other places. Ford still does almost all of its IT internally, so very little is outsourced. Information Security is an especially strong area of Ford IT.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, things move slowly. Because many employees have been there for decades, new ideas have real difficulty penetrating. Recent changes in management have dramatically improved this, and Alan Mulally is creating a culture of change, but this culture has not made it to IT, where old rules still apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving the acceleration of change and recognition of the importance of the customer. An increased focus should be placed on the improvement of IT to support the business needs. IT process efficiency must also be addressed to reduce operational overhead costs.
