    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some project works are active and exciting to work on as an engineer.

    Cons

    The company is only interested in satisfying customers. They forget about their own employees who express frustrations every year after employees are treated with poor annual bonuses and other benefits. I don't see them improved anytime soon.

    Former Intern - Marketing Sales and Service in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Ford Motor Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They give you a lot of freedom to complete your tasks, nobody is babysitting you. Great people to work with, all very down to earth. Summer mentor really enjoys having one on one time to teach interns about Ford culture. Work-life balance is great, everyone understands what Friday means.

    Cons

    If you start in marketing in the field there will be a lot of moving around.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work/life flexibility options and fair pay.

    Cons

    Buildings need updates and repairs. Building environment is not the best. I don't work in the headquarters building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take out some of the red tape and get things done faster.

    Current Employee - Technician in Sterling Heights, MI
    Current Employee - Technician in Sterling Heights, MI

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. We build some of the best and most advanced front wheel drive transmissions in the world. You work with a variety of technology including, Stamping presses, automated milling machinery, assembly equipment and modernized assembly lines. Almost all of the plant is climate controlled and has air quality levels above those in many production facilities.
    Ford provides great health and dental benefits as well as educational benefits for college and self improvement purposes. Use them to keep your mind sharp and life interesting.

    Cons

    Little room to climb in the company. Long hours due to a variety of modern scheduling programs. Every department has different scheduling systems which do not coincide. Creates animosity, absenteeism, and competition to get in to specific departments. Very little overtime due to scheduling. Due to Tier Two systems and plant closures high seniority from other locations have come, some paid, to this plant, forcing the majority of original Van Dyke employees to undesired shifts. Unless you have 20 years plus, you won't get to pick your shift. Under 15 years and you'll more than likely be stuck on afternoon shift until you retire. Due to UAW wording in contract you won't be able to transfer to other plants unless their is a permanent layoff or your plant becomes designated a Tier Two facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication and find a scheduling structure that works.

    Pros

    Good people. All buildings are close to each other, so no need to take a long walk.

    Cons

    This is the most unethical company. The company provides one of the best benefits to the upper managements, but paltry benefits to general salaried employees. Benefit and compensation are not competitive.

    Pros

    Lots of job openings to college graduates and experienced engineers.

    Cons

    The benefit and compensation are not competitive. Hence, only mediocre graduates or engineers apply for the company. They typically apply to GM and if they get denied, then they apply to Ford.

    Pros

    Dearborn is a historical area where lots of fun stuffs are going like Henry Ford Museum.

    Cons

    Every year, benefits and health insurance are getting worse. The benefit and compensation are not competitive. Annual bonus we got this month is exactly a half what my GM counterpart received last month. So depressing... Don't understand why we are short-changed every year with better profit margins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make annual bonus competitive with GM.

    Current Employee - Engineering Supervisor in Dearborn, MI

    Pros

    Very relaxed working environment for employees.

    Cons

    Benefit and compensation are not competitive. Hard to find a new employee because Ford is not job-seekers' first choice. Annual bonus and annual merit raise always trails GM. Not many college graduates are considering this company unless they GPA's are too low to apply to GM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve annual bonus and merit raise to salaried employees. The bonus and merit raise we received this week just baffle us. My husband works for GM. He is advising me to quit Ford and join GM before it is too late.
