    Pros

    Global Company, impressive brands, stable company, good people.

    Cons

    Poor ERP systems, outdated process, practices and principles. Systems and processes are are to fractured and dependent on individuals not would one would expect from a global company. Entirely too many levels of management with the middle layer being the worst. Health benefits are poor for salaried personnel.

    Advice to Management

    FMC needs to hire outside evaluation firm to come in and revamp process and procedures .

    Pros

    Ford is a fairly sound company from a financial standpoint.

    I was hired as a financial budget control analyst. I was simple an overpaid data entry clerk with out the ability to document and recommend process enhancements or changes.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees ti di what they were hired to do.

    Pros

    - Really nice people overall - Small teams with good structuring - Good name to have on the resume - Solid projects

    Cons

    - Not a lot of room for innovation or creativity - Very few perks (lunch, freebies, etc.) - Hard to feel the company vision because of how big it is

    Advice to Management

    I would focus on being a more fast-paced work environment where everyone feels involved in the same goal. It's easy to get lost in such a big place and it's a good feeling to know your work matters significantly and is having direct impact. Oftentimes for change to be implemented, there are so many bureaucratic hoops that stand in the way.

    Pros

    benefits are good for union workers. 4-10 hour days is nice. paid holidays. wage is ok, but not for this type of work.

    Cons

    DESTROYS your body. You are just a number. Profit over people. Literally physically working non-stop all day. Ask and wait to use restroom. No room to advance. Seniority based "priveleges" do not encourage hard work. Lazy/stupid people get better jobs than motivated/intelligent people.

    Advice to Management

    get on the line and try it out. lower the job load or line speed. move people around instead of trapping them on the same job.

    Pros

    Pay is decent. benifits keep getting less. The occasional good manager is great. Not enough of them.

    Cons

    Nepotism is big. Supervisors are willing to keep you from moving rather than train someone new. if you get a good manager, they are usually great. But too many self serving that are willing to sacrifice their direct reports for their own self promotion.

    Advice to Management

    See above. Many at the GSR level are leaving and this will get worse as economy picks up (even more so with defined contribution)
