    retain expeirenced people, too many are being forced out the door to make room for new grad hires, working for less pay and much poorer benefits package

    Pros

    Ford is a fairly sound company from a financial standpoint.

    Cons

    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.


  10. No salary- Pay isn't consistent for salesmen.

    Pros

    Great health & dental insurance. You get what you put out. Money is based off of your effort.

    Cons

    Salesmen only make commission- Therefore, a slow season means no money for salesmen. This may not be an issue for dealerships in high traffic areas...but for more rural locations, a slow season can be lethal. Example: January and February are the worst. Everyone spends too much during Christmas, therefore no one is looking to buy a car right after the holidays. No one coming into the dealership means salesman aren't getting paychecks. The salesman who have enough clientele from years of working there might have a few 'repeat customers' come in to buy from them, but usually a slow season is bad for everyone. Also, the dealership doesn't drug test (at least the one I work at) they say they 'might' in the paperwork but they never do. This is a big problem when you out know management is doing drugs on the premises. Management at my particular dealership is crooked... That's not every dealership though. If sales stayed more consistent, I would have no reason to leave. But with a second child on the way, I need more consistency for my family... And this particular dealership doesn't pull in enough money for me to take care of my family properly.

    Advice to Management

    Ford needs to start making surprise visits to dealerships and do mandatory drug tests for all salesmen and management. Don't tip them off in time for them to flush their systems. My dealership is flooded with drugs. Management is doing them on the premises. This is not professional in my opinion.

    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)
