    Pros

    Allows you feel that you can make an impact with the product during the design process and how it's assembled in the plant. You can truly see and understand your impact to the company's bottom line.

    Cons

    No real recognition for extraordinary efforts, it's treated as the expectation, so it's very difficult to be seen as a high achiever. Very limited lines for promotion. Constantly move from launch to launch without any real downtime, so your usually under constant stress

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase hiring, the current levels are not sufficient and we are losing people due to workload.

    Pros

    The coworkers are very helpful and willing to lead the company to better directions.

    Cons

    The benefits and compensations are not competitive. I had to leave this month after I found out the company shortchanged general salaried employees even though the company made a huge profit. The funny thing is the company gave an enormous amount of salary and bonus to CEO, in fact, even more than GM CEO, but the company gave less than 50% of annual bonuses to regular employees compared to GM. This company, I think, is unethical. Very. The company calls for "ONE FORD", but that is only when they slave-drive engineers. When it comes to sharing company profits, the ONE FORD disappears completely. It was late for me to leave the company, but I am glad now that I am working for a company who treats even regular employees equally.

    Pros

    The company provides a decent salary.

    Cons

    Every year the company increases the premiums for health insurance plans to salaried employees. Very very high premiums and very very high deductible amounts. If you have someone who is sick or baby coming, you better join other auto companies like GM. With the same amount of a salary, Ford will take out a lot of health insurance costs out of your paychecks.

    Pros

    Profit machine for the last 6 years along with hot selling F-150!!!

    Cons

    The problem is the profits are not shared with general salaried roll employees fairly. Only top dogs like CEO and VPs are getting most of it. GM generates similar profits every year with a more number of employees, but gives out more annual profit sharing bonuses to their general salaried employees. Overall, the employees' moral at Ford is so down. No one seems to take initiatives. We fear every March when the company announces annual bonuses because it is always 50% of what our GM counterparts are getting.

    Pros

    From outside this company looks ethical and awarded accordingly, but in reality it is not at all.

    Cons

    The company is not sharing profits with general salaried roll engineers. The annual bonus is the worst. The CEO was awarded 18.6 million dollars!

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment. You can enjoy working for this company if you are unambitious.

    Cons

    The ration between CEO annual bonus and general salary roll engineers' annual bonuses are the highest in the auto industry. Very unfair company. The company catchphrase is One Ford. Ya, right. What kind of One Ford treats so dramatically differently the CEO and engineers? Please look around and see how GM treats their engineers. GM CEO annual bonus was about 70% of Ford CEO, but GM's engineers got 170% of Ford engineers' annual bonuses at the same grade levels. Shame on the company who doesn't appreciate engineers' hard work and initiative. The company only seems to be interested in pleasing UAW workers and CEO, VPs, not engineers or general salaried roll employees.
