    Pros

    Very big company where you can relax and do nothing if that is what you want to do. Nobody will notice it unless you make a serious mistake and get kicked out of the company.

    Cons

    The benefit is not competitive at all. It used to be OK until 1999, but now it is industry-worst. GM has the best benefit in the auto industry. Many engineers around me leave the company and join GM these days. Annual bonuses are especially the worst. No matter how hard you work, you will get less than half of GM annual bonuses.

    Pros

    Depends which department you get put in but most are good people to work with.

    Cons

    HR and upper management does not care one bit about lower level salary employees. Alot of the newer people are way underpaid and have no chance to get raises unless they threaten to leave and it happens to cause a problem for their boss. Boss's never tell the truth and only worry about covering their own hind end. One Ford is a complete waste... the only people that believe in it have nothing to do with what is going on out on the floor and the people on the floor are completely taken back by how useless it is...

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to your lower level employees and give them a reason to stick around. Also, ditch either the one ford system or all the other ones that you still make everyone use keeping them there for long hours and not compensating them for their time.

    Pros

    Good pay rate. Numerous hours of overtime given. The name "Ford" looks good on any resume. Offers different skills to be learned.

    Cons

    Long work days. Climate is very uncomfortable in the winter and summer months. Its very dirty inside. The union needs to defend employees with a lot more force.

    Advice to Management

    The management operations needs to be updated because the plant is ran very old fashion like.

    Pros

    Great benefits, assistant services, and overtime granted and unionized

    Cons

    It is not a professional setting, there is no respect from higher authority

    Advice to Management

    Professionalism would be a key point in promoting an individual to higher tiers.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Solid choices for health insurance (I believe 5). 401k Match, Additional Retirement, Dental, Vision, 2 weeks Sick/Personal, upto 6 weeks vacation

    Cons

    People can get lost in a big company. Many hard working employees pick up the slack for the losers that get lost in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to what your employees are saying. If you want to win the battle you have to win the crowd!

    Pros

    There is a union (UAW) if you are into that sort of thing. If you like lots of overtime it is there(and mandatory). The people are nice once you have been there for a couple (weeding out) weeks.

    Cons

    Not much family life due to long hours from mandatory overtime (5 days 10 hours a day). Shifts are only 6a or 6p so your whole day will be messed up. There is a huge pay gap between new workers and others ($8.00 or more) although you are doing the exact same jobs. Hard work that is hard on your body. No chance to move to a different plant or to a different area(production to IT).

    Advice to Management

    Less overtime please!!!!
