    Pros

    It's a good company with diverse culture, lots of colleague passionate about the goal of the company and striving to deliver the result. Learned a lot from people around me and everyone is wiling to help

    Cons

    As a 100+ year old company, Ford seems not to be as agile as some new companies that adopting the changing world very quickly. Lots of process to make a thing a happen...

    Advice to Management

    Adapting to the new world of rule and the fast changing business environment, simplify the process and spend more time on execution, looking at the business more broadly...

    Pros

    The organization is very flat. You can talk with supervisors, chiefs, directors and even with VPs about new ideas.

    Every project is a challenge. I learned a lot at Ford.

    Cons

    The processes lack a lot of efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in environment (new desks, new computers) and upgrade your processes.

    The Engineering processes are becoming obsolete and that is always an issue.
