    Pros

    The finance professionals rotate to different areas of the company on a regular basis. It allows the employees to see and experience many different areas of the company.

    Cons

    The promotion process is very secretive and sometimes frustrating for those who want promotions.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency throughout the ranks is needed.

    Pros

    The pay is awesome co workers are nice! Cafeteria food was great!! Profit sharing is awesome. Have some really good union reps.

    Cons

    Hours may be too long for your family. Supervisor's and management are not the best. The facility needs to be shutdown and rehabilitated. Big roaches and rats that's the size of a pit bulls are in and out the building.

  6. Great company for young finance professionals looking for diverse experience

    Pros

    Finance rotational program for recent undergraduates and graduates. Young finance professionals are able to gain background in variety of fields within finance (i.e. product development, manufacturing, marketing, etc.).

    Daily interaction with other employees in different functions around the world.

    Cons

    In some roles, the work life balance can be difficult to manage.

    The work environment can be greatly improved. The buildings are very outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push hard on "One Ford" as this is a key strategy.

    Pros

    Good experience, you learn allot in a short period of time about allot of various mfg processes and the automotive industry. Hours are ridiculous and be prepared to be thrown into the fire. Great people on the PVT team.

    Cons

    -Little to no training, -terrible hours, -cut-throat environment, -lots of incompetent people embedded into positions that accomplish nothing and only seem to get in the way, -lots of red tape, -generally dishonesty (lying to management about quality targets and actions taken, allot of bsing between different departments) -ridiculous amount of daily report out or open forum style meetings (a day with 4 hours worth of meetings was not uncommon for me), -Bad union relationship, -disgusting work environment, -unclean bathrooms, -HVAC system didn't work right so it was usually about 90 in the summer, -fumes (apparently the safe type of chemical fumes, they had it checked out) from the paint shop blew into our windows so we couldn't open them when it got to hot and it was cooler outside than in the office, -Windows in the office were inexplicably painted over with white paint at some point in time, -Un-realistic targets

    -Extremely high levels of stress (one guy I worked with had a mental breakdown)

    Pros

    Great company for an engineer. Can really make an impact depending on projects you are assigned to work on.

    Cons

    It takes a while to get used to working with the union employees. After you develop a relationship with them they are really helpful.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was awesome. He provided great coaching and allowed me to make some mistakes, then let me learn from them.

  9. Great work life balance, but don't go in looking to get promoted easily and there's a lot of standby time.

    Pros

    Pay scale is pretty good.

    Cons

    Segmentation of the departments feel alienating. Contract employees are treated like third class citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate of your reporting employees, no one wants to hear you gripe about your 6 figures when they are barely making 5.
