Pros

Ford Motor Company has a good salary structure, excellent health plan, a strong union, a challenging work environment, wonderful retirement benefits, plus opportunities for additional education. The team concept is always promoting quality control in order to produce the highest level of product possible.

Cons

Because of the changing work environment, a two-tiered pay structure was implemented a few years ago. Having a significant portion of the work force doing similar jobs for less pay holds the potential for morale problems. In addition, the pressure to produce target numbers can cause management to sometimes make what appear to be unreasonable demands on their employees.

Advice to Management

Solicit more input from the line workers. They are the first line of defense for the company to guard against producing an inferior product.

    Pros

    Making a great product. Good tools to work with. They have a pretty consistent way of doing business with established rules, patterns and written guidelines. You can take personal pride/ ownership in the product you are building.

    Cons

    You've got to be willing to work long hours at a hard job. Production runs 24x7 and so does it's support. Requires lots of flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    There is no organized long term plan for employees.. no job progression, no special education required for advancement. You have a job, if you get lucky you get another job. Not a great way to think about the long term future of the company.
