    Pros

    Great relaxed atmosphere, good salary, friendly collegues staff members

    Cons

    You are treated different to permanent employees, never have a chance to become a Ford Employee unless you have a degree even if its a cleaning degree, to many people who like to show you they are above you! Should treat all employees the same and not freeze them out!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    praise and recognise all staff members,contract permanent etc, ensure all are treated the same!
    take a chance and if someone has been there a while and doing a good job offer them a job and stability!

    Former Contractor - Project Engineer in Basildon, East of England, England (UK)

    I worked at Ford Motor Company (UK) as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Being an car OEM there is a lot you can get experience of such as working on programmes for different markets, working with a lot of people from different countries as well as the various technical areas (planning, R&D, development, production, costs, volumes, etc.)

    Cons

    A lot of meetings which accomplish little. Some people seem to have excessive work loads, others very little. Many managers seem to be in the position for reasons other than ability.

    Worst of all, there a lot of people who have been there a long time, perhaps envious of the degree-level younger staff and generally disillusioned with their own lives and careers, who are a pain to work with. A lot of younger employees then seem to either fall into a similar attitude or get frustrated and leave.
