    Pros

    High pay, compensates for travel

    Cons

    Too many models on their board, you have to keep the agent model relationship very strong, or you don't get work.

    Pros

    You will get lots of work if you are good at what you do.

    Cons

    You won't get a PENNY for all of your hard work. FORD DOES NOT PAY ITS PEOPLE.

    Advice to Management

    Please, if you are booking a model, photographer, hair and makeup artist, wardrobe stylist etc... PLEASE KNOW that these people who work so hard for you are getting their money STOLEN from these DIRTBAG LOSERS at Ford Model agency. They are despicable SCUM and play games with the people they 'represent'. The MIAMI location is absolutely the lowest of the low.

    Pros

    Great perks If you can stand the stereotypical, superficial atmosphere, the ability to earn a good salary down the road.

    Cons

    With a few minor exceptions, both models and agents live up to every stereotype you've heard of.

    Advice to Management

    Should control the way agents are allowed to act and treat people. Appalling behavior by some of them!

    Pros

    Ability to organize and finalize projects for multiple outlets / design platforms. Ease of management allowed individuals to create / promote / and prosper ideas from creation to evaluation with the rest of the Art Department designers.

    Cons

    Ability to funnel all Art Department work into a single organized location. Meaning, different offices would send assignments to different Emails, disrupting work-flow. Issue was resolved through Management and H.R. after an Art Department team meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciated their time and commitment to employees.

    Pros

    - Great way to learn the industry from long-time leaders
    - Company is willing to teach and take a chance on young employees and mentor them.

    Cons

    - Too much of the company is being run by young adults and there needs to be some leadership with experience.
    - Some leadership is too full of themselves to even care about company growth, only personal advancement.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't put all your eggs in one basket and listen to your employees knowledge on clients, markets, and talent.
