Varied but underwhelming

Reliability & Maintainability (Former Employee)
Livonia, MI

I worked at Ford Motor as an intern for less than a year

Pros-The different plant locations in the area provide different work opportunities
-Proximity to the headquarters assures company/business updates are recent and relevant
-Although bad, the economic downturn allows for significant, available project work to be completed as they (hopefully) start rebuilding

Cons-Determining project work/objectives was challenging through the bureaucracy
-On-boarding process was confusing, not straight-forward and poorly laid out
-Was hired under one manager, who was then transferred to Canada, and transition to new manager was stodgy
-Internally slow and lacking standard procedures for work, analysis, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe internship program should operate as a feeder into the full-time program, which was conferred to us but appears to be significantly lacking in operation. The project(s) were not fully laid out prior to my arrival, we scrambled my first week just trying to pull something together, and I was not given a proper exit interview/opportunity at the end of the summer. For a company that spoke of growing and expanding, that was less-than-evident in the facilities themselves.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Finance Internship

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Even a week would be helpful to give… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Busiest possible L3 Windows Admin environment

Senior Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
Dearborn, MI

I worked at Ford Motor for more than 10 years


Pros: Always something to do, rarely ever bored. Huge environment, application… Cons: Highly politicized environment. What is best for the company sometimes takes a back seat to internal politics,… Advice to Senior Management: Actively pursue communication with non-management personnel, both positive and negative,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
