    Pros

    There is not much to mention about pros for this company. The comoany is very stingy on salaried employee benefits. Only CEO and senior managements get nice fat annual bonuses.

    Cons

    The annual bonuses at this company is a joke after many years record breaking profits. And the burden from health insurance premiums and deductibles are astronomocal.

    Pros

    Allows you feel that you can make an impact with the product during the design process and how it's assembled in the plant. You can truly see and understand your impact to the company's bottom line.

    Cons

    No real recognition for extraordinary efforts, it's treated as the expectation, so it's very difficult to be seen as a high achiever. Very limited lines for promotion. Constantly move from launch to launch without any real downtime, so your usually under constant stress

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase hiring, the current levels are not sufficient and we are losing people due to workload.

    Pros

    I can offer no positive comments about this company that are great enough to outweigh all of the negative elements that I have experienced.

    Cons

    For more than 20 years I was an exemplary employee with perfect attendance records, and an outstanding performance record. After being placed in a work environment that was filled with several "Good Old Boys" who all had an unbelievable hatred for anyone with a different sexual orientation, that team worked very hard to make my life as miserable as they could during my term with them, including stealing from me, tampering with meals that I brought to work, openly making hateful jokes and remarks about gay people, and making repeated efforts to get me terminated. Well, finally after I was struck by an individual with a large "Mag" flashlight, and because I simply pushed him away from me in an attempt to prevent any additional strikes to me, my career was stolen from me, and my life has been ruined as a result. Not only were the "Good Old Boys" active in the efforts to rob me of my career and future, but every supervisor that was in charge of my work area worked closely with them in their efforts. It took them about four years to achieve their goal, after all, my work record was exemplary, and only after defending my personal safety were they able to finally find success for their efforts, the local UAW, and my committee man would do nothing to correct the gross injustice that was done to me. I can tell you that, although Ford Motor Company makes claims that they value diversity, and work to create an all inclusive work environment, the fact is that on the "shop floor", there is no real effort to attain an all-inclusive, non-discriminatory workplace. Keep your eyes open, a book to detail my journey may be coming.

    Pros

    The coworkers are very helpful and willing to lead the company to better directions.

    Cons

    The benefits and compensations are not competitive. I had to leave this month after I found out the company shortchanged general salaried employees even though the company made a huge profit. The funny thing is the company gave an enormous amount of salary and bonus to CEO, in fact, even more than GM CEO, but the company gave less than 50% of annual bonuses to regular employees compared to GM. This company, I think, is unethical. Very. The company calls for "ONE FORD", but that is only when they slave-drive engineers. When it comes to sharing company profits, the ONE FORD disappears completely. It was late for me to leave the company, but I am glad now that I am working for a company who treats even regular employees equally.
