    Pros

    It seems the direction taken is well chosen, but engineers are not well recognized sometimes. Opinions are ignored many times.. .

    Cons

    Annual bonus the company is giving out to salaried employees are humiliating compared to other OEMs around town. GM is the best. FCA is the second. Ford gives about 8k dollars less than GM to salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    You do not care, so keep doing what you are doing until all the good engineers leave for GM.

    Pros

    Initially the benefit was competitive but as years go by, it went downhill and I had to leave looking for a better auto company. Now I am vey happy.

    Cons

    The bebefit is the worst in auto industry. If you are hospitalized, u should expect to spend most of ur monthly payment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve annual bonus. The current target is a joke considering how mucn money u make.

    Pros

    Global company that puts many employees into daily interaction with other employees around the world. As a family controlled company, there is a very strong sense of community/family around the world.

    Cons

    Working global is harder due to time zones and differing cultural norms. In general, high expectations for commitment and effort are not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push hard on "One Ford" as this is a key strategy. The other key strategy is Innovation, which is essential for success in the next century of the company.

    Pros

    There are some good aspects like making cars people love to drive and I pu an effort to, which is very rewarding.

    Cons

    But, the benefit is very uncompetitive to salaried employees excluding CEO and VPs who are unfairly well compensated. One Ford is dead. Do not fall for the trick. If my brother applies to Ford, I would strongly stop him.

    Pros

    Many new projects you can learn and improve. Decent salary. Ford makes some nice cars engineered by outstanding engineers. . .

    Cons

    The annual bonus is really bad to general salaried employees. 7.5k vs. 14k at GM. Ford CEO gets a lot more than GM CEO. Only general salaried employees are left behind every year.

  7. Today Ford Announced Annual Bonus Target for Salaried Employees, which is a half of GM.

    Pros

    Good locations if you like Dearborn. Some discounts for Ford car purchase or lease. . . . . . . . Many advanced programs.

    Cons

    This year annual bonus target is a half of what GM engineers get. Then, Ford gives out much more money to CEO than GM CEO. It is very unfair. Unethical.
    The benefit is very uncompetitive.

    Pros

    Very good college graduates. Work hard. Average salary. High medical insurance cost. Very low annual bonus. Very low employees moral. .

    Cons

    Medical insurance cost is outrageous. You lose your shirts. In total, you may pay 10% of your salary for the cost.

    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.
