ConsI can not think of any.

It's a great company to work for if you don't mind regular travel and relocation

Zone Manager (Current Employee)
Dearborn, MI

I have been working at Ford Motor full-time for more than a year

ProsManagement and coworkers provide an environment of support and teamwork. As a whole, the company is increasing its market share which should lead to increased opportunities.

ConsAdvancement requires constant relocation, even when higher opportunities that are a logical next step up exist in the same region.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up more pathways for retaining and advancing your existing talent.

I worked at Ford Motor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPeople you work with are like family.

ConsPolitical and Male Dominated.. Lacks opportunity for female advancement and equal pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your designs to compete with the rest of the industry. Lower your prices, improve your gas mileage and quality. This is the feedback I get from neighbors and acquaintances. I can't sell your cars.

Just Ok

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Dearborn, MI

I have been working at Ford Motor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI think they provide a decent salary. I have looked at a job at a bank in Pittsburgh and top of the salary range was 30K less than I was making at the time.They have profit sharing. Management has the option to lease vehicles with unlimited mileage and includes insurance. The only other thing I can think of is that they allow you to telecommute one or two days a week and provide alternative work weeks such as 4 10 hour days with a day off.

ConsVery political. Not a lot of cooperation between groups. Really no career path. They seem to favor the systems engineers in distributed and server support. In twelve years only one mainframe engineer was promoted to a technical specialist. Lots and lots of bureaucracy and process. For example, to obtain a server, you have to go through 4 different processes, one of which, took a year to get approved. Lousy work environment. Very dirty. Probably the worst office area I ever worked in my 30+ years.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow that you value your senior employees. Eliminate the bureaucracy. Absolutely too much process and they keep on adding more. Over 12 months working on getting a server and still don't have it, just ridiculous.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
