    I have been working at Ford Motor Company as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are knowledgeable and are willing to help you with anything you might need. Great place to be if you like cars or manufacturing. There is a ton a job growth within this company and ways to move up into positions.

    Cons

    In the summertime the assembly plants get really hot, and its like walking around in a sauna at times.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and great people for the most part. Very challenging industry. All employees are very committed to embracing the Ford family and their vision for the company. A great corporate citizen.

    Cons

    Constantly requiring relocation if you want to advance and be promoted. On average I have had to relocate every 18 to 24 months. The relocation package is not competitive and employees have to bear a lot of the expense. Promotions seem to be based on managing up and not based on merit. Pretty boys and girls seem to get ahead even when they don't do their jobs well. It's all about the politics. You definitely need a "sponsor" to advanced. The company is not really interested in what you want to do or not do in relation to your career and family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to dramatically change the culture if they want the younger generation to be interested in a career here. Move some operations out of Michigan as it puts the company at a disadvantage because people don't want to live in metro Detroit unless you are from there. This is a major hurdle in attracting top tier new talent.
