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

    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

    Work life balance us fantastic! Get your job done on your own terms. An almost free vehicle is a nice perk as well.

    Takes a while to be promoted and some people take up cherished positions for too long. Must move to be promotedd.

    Promote the best people and pay the people that get the job done. If somebody is willing to move to be promoted don't make them wait.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very positive work environment. Meaningful work, and educative experience. Coworkers very willing to offer aid and assistance with work. Ford creates fantastic products and has an environment of pride and progress.

    Cons

    I did not have a lot of negative experience, although I feel that in such a big company it was easy to get lost in the expansiveness thereof.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to interns and newer employees in order to understand what can be done to improve communication across departments.

    Pros

    Good pay, very interesting projects, fulfilling job experience, made many connections in the company that I will for sure keep in contact with throughout my career.

    It is Corporate America. I had to jump though many hoops to get all the things I needed to start on my project but once I had everything I needed the job was fun and rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really comes to mind keep up the good work and I like how free the supervisors and managers tend to be as long as you show results.
