Pros

Benefits, pay, experience, team oriented environment, sense of family

Long hours, occasionally tense work environment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage data-driven decision making by middle management. Too often, decisions are based on partial, inaccurate, or incomplete information, and have a tendency to be emotionally-driven.

    I have been working at Ford Motor

    Pros

    Every day brings new challenges. This allows one to grow professionally in ways that are not possible in companies that are in steady state. Management seems to understand what it takes to make it and have become more open to ideas wherever they come from.

    Cons

    The auto industry in the US is facing huge challenges. There may not be much left of it when all is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain course. It's the way to go. Do not let up in setting high goals and rewarding those who deliver or accept responsibility if they don't.

    I have been working at Ford Motor

    Pros

    Wonderful people. I developed trusting relationships with those in my department and others within my first few months of working here. Most people at all levels truly care about one another's success. Ford Motor Company leads the rebound of the automotive industry, and it's exciting to have a role in the turn-around.

    Cons

    Recent economic pressure has led some employees to fear for their jobs. When people are driven by fear, political jockeying and sharp elbows prevail. Some lower and mid level managers have adapted to having smaller teams by digging in and working alongside those who report to them, while others still feel it is only their job to "manage" and babysit, not to contribute in any meaningful way. Ford is still quite management heavy, leaving little opportunity for promotions or growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify and promote high performers. Test competencies of very long term employees whose skills may have dwindled. Have cross-functional teams rate other global members of the team, using evaluations such as, "on a scale of 1 to 5, would you want to work on a team with this person again" and "this person put team goals ahead of personal project interests."
