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 ManagementAdvice

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

    As an intern in Ford's marketing program between my first and second years of business school, I found my role to be challenging and educational. The program was very well run and access to senior level management was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to pursue a career in marketing.

    Cons

    The company is very large, so things tend to move at a "big company" pace, but I did find the level of politics to be better (meaning much less) than other large corporations I have worked for.
