    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good enterprise company. Good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Career advancement is not consistent within each department/organization. Some department would retain the staffs at all cost including blocking you for lateral moves. Upward mobility is difficult unless you are part of good old boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep staying in the right course!

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent challenges as Ford has recovered from the last downturn. Many new hires and new assignments. Decent pay and benefits. You get to focus on a few vehicles and the plants building them. New CEO is great, and the company is striving to keep abreast of all the latest technologies. General atmosphere is optimistic.

    Cons

    Sometimes long travel time working out at plant sites during new product launches. Work life balance can get tricky. Most growth is overseas, not in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify some of your products so they are less complex to build. Sometimes too much choice is not worth it.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company

    Pros

    Steady work, not really worried about a work shortage.

    Cons

    Most of the management and UAW employees aren't the best to deal with, difficult. It seems that everyone has an agenda which do not correspond with each other. Training of new employees (salary and union) and communication needs to improve.

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

    Pros

    Great group of people who are passionate about designing a better vehicle for the customer.
    The group that I work in are very very good at what they do, and are always willing to help out if you are struggling something.
    Its also great to be part of a great company at ford, the corporate culture encourages employees of different departments to work together, I won't deny there has been friction with working in other departments but compared to working at other automotive companies this place is better.
    The benefits are also great as well.
    ford is investing not only in new facilities, but they are also hiring new engineers.
    I also like a casual working environment, Ford is fine with you wearing jeans and a polo to work, they suggest if you are meeting with suppliers. Also Ford encourages its employees to telecommute once a week typically Friday, but it isn't required.

    Cons

    Unless you live in Dearborn, the commute to work is pretty bad, traffic on Southfield (M39) or 94 is pretty bad. I wish there were better cafeteria options for Food, usually you have to go out to eat if you don't pack, but one of the best Thai restaurants in the Metro Detroit area is 10 min from Ford's campus. Parking can be an issue if you work at EVB

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep yup the good work!!

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Diverse workforce
    - Global exposure
    - High level of responsibility
    - Exciting products
    - Good people

    Cons

    - Extremely political
    - Antiquated systems & buildings
    - Good ole boys club still strong
    - Get in line for promotions
    - Workload not evenly distributed
    - Moving into a different organizations almost impossible (Manufacturing, MP&L)
    - Employee satisfaction surveys are rigged and employees are coached how to respond because Directors have this as an objective
    - Training is non-existant
    - You only have the ability to move to Production Purchasing, Program Purchasing or Non-Production Purchasing without really gaining a new skill set

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Allow employees the opportunity to move into different organizations early on in their careers
    - Update your facilities
    - Rank and rate each position on level of difficulty and importance to the business (peer and management based)
    - Be more transparent on open positions
