    Pros

    Ford is a big brand name.
    Compensation and work life balance is good.

    Cons

    If you are working on contract in Ford Motors, job security is very poor. You may get fired for very silly reasons. Contract employees are all expendable. Dare not speak or have opinion or present ideas that your supervisor does not approve. Just follow orders. Do not expect a career at FORD!!!!

    Zero training and orientation provided for new contract employees, and are expected to deliver as if you have 10 year experience working in the company.
    Processes are very cumbersome, and any engineering change you try to make, takes ages to go through. Gigantic size of company and, poor process flows and red tape are a major problem. Nobody in the company can explain the exact process when consulted.
    Company does not want smart and intelligent contact employees, but only workforce that follows given orders. Do not expect you can put in new ideas and innovate at Ford.
    Management is very crappy. Projects are shuffled every 6 months, so you got to hand over and take over new projects. Projects are literally dumped on you. This leads to complete loss in tempo, and have to start from scratch.
    Engineering Data, reports and history is not carefully documented and stored in database to retrieve by new people. Horrible state of affairs. WERS is the most outdated tool you got to work with, which reminds of user interface in the 1960s.
    D&R is a scape

    Advice to Management

    Improve and modernize the attitude of management and processes from grass root levels. Give freedom to innovate and think out of the box at all levels.

    Pros

    Great developmental assignments for finance. Rotations through many areas of the company that allow you to see much of the business. Finance function plays an important role in the company.

    Cons

    As you progress through increasing levels of responsibility, the positions available for advancement become fewer and the talent pool is strong, so opportunities to continue to move up become more limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with strong focus on the most important elements of the business - bring out products that customers want, find efficiencies that don't impact the customers, and maintain balance between true demand and capacity.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to move around in order to find a suitable position.

    Cons

    Gridlock from office politics makes it hard to get anything done, lots of red tape. Office overhead also makes it difficult to get any real work done. Can be stuck in meaningless meetings all day long, which also makes it hard to get anything accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Put less emphasis on meetings. More separation of duties for individual work.
