    Former Employee - Product Design Engineer in Dearborn, MI
    Former Employee - Product Design Engineer in Dearborn, MI

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No good reason to pay horrible profit sharing money. Always industry worst to salaried employees.

    Cons

    Your work hard, but profits go to UAW and upper management, not to general salaried roll employees. Glad I left this company and making more money at GM.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I do not know if there is any pros in this company. Maybe pay is never stopped? And f150 is a good car?

    Cons

    You get what you feel embarrassed. Health insurance is so expensive (ford medical ppo). You get only half the bonus your competitor, GM, gets even after you had more profits than GM. There is no lease downpayment support like GM. After all, you better leave for GM.

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

    Pros

    All the beebfits. They are sometimes not competitive. You can check slary section of this website to compare this company and other competitors in auto industry.

    Cons

    In total, employees in this company are about 10k dollars less compensated compared to GM. Hence, best college graduates go to GM first, and then the remaining mediocre graduates come to this company. One week less vacation, several thousand dollars less annual bonus, more health insurance premiums, no company car purchase or lease downpayment support compared to GM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are losing good college graduates to competitors. Please make our benefits competitive. Otherwsie, nobody will drive down to Dearborn.

    Very Stingy on Benefits

    Current Employee - Interior Engineer in Dearborn, MI
    Current Employee - Interior Engineer in Dearborn, MI

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

    Pros

    You are paid even with very little work.

    Cons

    Based on Detroit Free Press on Feb, 23, 2015, Ford generates $995 profit per vehicle whereas GM generates $650 per vehicle. Ford has a less number of salaried employees than GM. But, Ford distributes to salaried employees half the annual bonuses GM distributes to salaried employees. Ford is a stingy company. Ford is generous only to UAW and upper managements. That is why only average Joe engineers stay at Ford.

    Current Employee - Closure Engineer in Dearborn, MI
    Current Employee - Closure Engineer in Dearborn, MI

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a line assembly worker, this is the best company to work for in auto industry because their hourly rate, $58, is the industry best.

    Cons

    If you are a salaried employee, this is the worst company to work for in auto industry because your benefits and compensations will be the worst in the same industry. And to make it worse, it is getting worse.

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

    Pros

    There are most of benefits available at this company.

    Cons

    Most of the available benefits are uncompetitive (profit sharing, health insurance, vacation days, college tuition support, no car purchase or lease down payment voucher).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please share your profits with salaried employees at the same level as other competitors in auto industry.

    Current Employee - Powertrain Cooling Engineer in Dearborn, MI

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overflowing toilet papaers in trash cans can deter some new hires, but once you take it as it is, it becoms ok. Outdated builds still have quality engineers.

    Cons

    So many. The pdc is in Dearborn. Many engineers drive 2 hours everyday. Too much traffic to Dearborn. After arduous driving every morning, you realize you work for a company whose benefit and compensation target is the 70th %ile among Fortune 50 companys, which prevents us from working to be the best. Why bother. The company is striving for the 70th %ile only. Employees just strive to be the 70 th%ile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why don't you pursue a 90th %ile benefit and compensation company instead of the 70th%ile?

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company

    Pros

    As a production operator and college student the pay is above average for me to provide for myself and other expenses. You get paid every week which is a major plus!

    Cons

    The hours are very long. If you are on afternoon shift get ready to sacrifice a lot of things because you will be at work majority of your evening/morning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the wages.

    Comfortable Place, Outdated Culture

    Current Intern - FCG in Dearborn, MI
    Current Intern - FCG in Dearborn, MI

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company as an intern

    Pros

    Can have many "careers" at Ford by going to different areas, good pay and benefits, FCG program affords diverse entry-level experience

    Cons

    Facilities: cubicle farms, basement of Ford Credit Building looks like stereotypical office building from 80's movies, building hasn't been updated in decades, molds around vents, flies in bathroom, water stains on ceilings and walls

    Culture: 6 levels of management above general salary employees, many people don't even meet second level up, some managers are good, others have let it go to their heads, no free coffee or hot water, poor cafeteria food, doesn't retain young people very well. Most of the people I work with are 45+, it is a comfortable place to work while preparing for retirement.

    Very little innovation in the company (besides in closed rooms of product development). Too many business processes/approvals/governances/managers that hinder real change.

    Beware of flexible work schedules: it works with some teams, but allows a lot of workers and especially managers to start their day/emails/meetings at 6 or 6:30, so if you come in at 9, you may already be 3 hours behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change in culture and innovation needs to begin at the top. Give younger people opportunities to have more significant roles in the company to get fresh ideas. Invest in the work environments and employee appreciation.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Dearborn, MI
    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Dearborn, MI

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume, work/life isn't too bad (unless you are in product development), learn a lot about the industry, get to rotate, tuition reimbursement (if you are ok with a 2 year committment), and opportunities to take control of projects if you are ambitious

    Cons

    The greater Detroit area is absolutely miserable (surprise) and the auto industry isn't exactly dynamic or exciting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more chances to take on responsibility for even the young people. Also, pay people more.
