    Pros

    There is a union (UAW) if you are into that sort of thing. If you like lots of overtime it is there(and mandatory). The people are nice once you have been there for a couple (weeding out) weeks.

    Cons

    Not much family life due to long hours from mandatory overtime (5 days 10 hours a day). Shifts are only 6a or 6p so your whole day will be messed up. There is a huge pay gap between new workers and others ($8.00 or more) although you are doing the exact same jobs. Hard work that is hard on your body. No chance to move to a different plant or to a different area(production to IT).

    Advice to Management

    Less overtime please!!!!

    Pros

    Good health benefits and 5% 401K match. Ford also contributes a small amount to a retirement plan. Overtime is paid to salaried employees so long as you have pre-approval and work more than 50 hours in a given work week.

    Cons

    Demanding work hours. Must work 50 hours before being paid overtime for a given week. Poor management of people. You're treated as just another cog in the machine. Profit sharing for salaried workforce is pitiful compared to what the hourly workers receive every year.

    Advice to Management

    Work to find and encourage a better work-life balance in your employees.

    Pros

    Ford Motor is a 'family' business with an amazing story that dates back more than 110 years. Led by a terrific senior leadership team, the company is evolving to meet the consumer and employee demands of today and tomorrow.

    Since the company was created by Henry Ford, where he instituted the $5 minimum wage - unheard of at the time - the business has given its employees fair wages and provided hundreds of thousands of everyday people the means to become part of the middle class.

    Cons

    Given the numbers of years that Ford has been in the business, many of its facilities are outdated and do not align with the expectations of the new generation of employees. These settings can be a somewhat of a 'buzz-kill' and inhibit creative and innovative thinking the business wants.

    Although the executive leadership team is pushing for greater transparency, openness, and acceptance doing things differently, many middle manager are still stuck in there conservative habits of formality and non-transparency. This lack of acceptance is an impediment to the evolution of the company in this new era of 'mobility'.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate middle management (LL6/5) wherever possible to remove the barriers of collaboration and increase the agility of the overall company.

    Additionally, look to bring in new managers/directors from other businesses to work in the many supporting functional teams, such as IT and HR. These are areas where new strategies and energy could significantly help the company innovate some of its inefficient processes.
