    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive. Management is flexible to different working arrangements (flexible scheduling, telecommuting). One can see their work in action is real products.

    Cons

    One must be prepared to drop everything to resolve assembly plant issues. Working in a global team requires extra care and attention to details and timing.

    Pros

    Health insurance, bonuses, pay is decent.

    Cons

    Hours are from 3-1130, so not much room for a social life. Constant micromanaging and complete disregard for hourly workers. I sometimes feel more like a worker than a employee.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely hot working conditions in the summer, horrible work/life balance, questionable co-workers, some with criminal pasts.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as human beings, not the metal machines on your plant floors. Sexual harassment is huge as certain plants, but the victim is penalized the same as the aggressor, a mandatory three days off. This is ridiculous for a company that states "we have zero tolerance for sexual harassment."

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and fair salary bands. Management are trying to do the right thing by employees but as with all large companies things move slowly.

    Cons

    Most departments are understaffed for the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ineffective LL6's that have been in their positions for over a decade or so, as there are plenty of excellent engineers with ambition and vision that could take their place. If you don't expect to loose many of these younger engineers to other more progressive companies.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people doing a fantastic job putting out great products. Dedicated to quality and a good bunch of people to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management get moved to often to other positions causing disruptions for subordinates just when subordinates understand a direction management is taking, another change occurs causing another disruption and the cycle starts all over again.

    Advice to Management

    Management could listen a little more to the people that actually perform the various tasks for better ways to perform a particular task smarter and not harder.
