    Good benefits and pay. Old style politics make this behemoth seem old fashioned. Cannot question the status quo.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive. Very high salary for some with limited experience. I work in Information Management now Global Data. They want to grow the departments and will pay quite a bit to keep you from going elsewhere. I recommend getting in good with your supervisor and manager. Be able to sell yourself even if you do not feel qualified. They will buy it, have strength in how you portray yourself. Focus on mirroring their style and you will go far.

    Cons

    Not many cons other than trying to keep up with the ever changing political landscape is scary. If you are no longer their favorite, you will feel it and possibly be ostracized. Group mobbing is prevalent and affects morale when you see good workers outed. My advice: stay on the in. You may not make real changes or innovate because questioning the status-quo is frowned upon, but you will stay in good standing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep paying good money to make up for the political culture and low morale. Consider changing long-standing methods that stifle team work and innovation.

    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.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Pros

    Health insurance/dental/vision 401k constant hours vacation time

    Cons

    You won't like everyone you work with but it's livable. The health insurance plan is a joke. Way to pricey.I got a better and more affordable plan on my own.

    Advice to Management

    I have loved management. They will take time to listen to you. They are flexible to any needs or life situations you may have.

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

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Adequate benefits. Flexible work schedule (with management approval) Can work from home on occasion (with management approval)

    Cons

    Few if any advancement opportunities for those over 40. Limited advancement opportunities for everyone else due to lean management structure. Advancement opportunities further limited because many management slots are "reserved" for rotations from other areas of Finance. Salaried bonuses that are 1/2 of GM's, 2/3 of FCA's, and 80% of the award earned by Ford UAW workers. Continued annual pay increases less than industry average.

    Advice to Management

    We continue to be the most profitable of the Big 3. Mark Fields got $18 million last year and the executive suite did very well, while the rest of us didn't even match what the hourly workers got. This kind of executive greed is causing a lot of people to rethink their employment prospects and go out and get better jobs. In my department, 2 have already left and I know of at least 6 that are in the process of looking for other work. We're having trouble finding replacements because the price you are willing to pay is about 80% of what wasn't enough to keep your present employees working for you. You can't continue to lead the market when you don't want to pay enough or provide career advancement opportunities to attract the best and brightest.

    Pros

    Pay and time off are very competitive for the industry. Promotes work - life balance. Great company, with long history.

    Cons

    C level management not aware of the extreme silo - mentality that exists even within departments. Departments ' fight each othet for business in a service-based model, which hugely negates the One Ford philosophy. A dept will not share ideas, etc with another, in hopes of winning dorf funding over other dept. Favoritism of 'the few' negatively affects the masses, this further degrades the One Ford philosophy of 'Own Working Together '

    Advice to Management

    To keep this great company great, take a look, a serious look at how current models are degrading the One Ford philosophies put in place by Alan Mullally.
