    Intern with non-profit food pantry through Ford Motor Co.'s Blue Oval Scholar program. Awesome opportunity to do good!

    Marketing Intern (Current Employee) Taylor, MI

    ProsRepresenting the Blue Oval is an honor! I drive a 2012 Ford Focus because it was built in Michigan, and I am proud that the company that makes such an awesome ride cares so much for its home.

    ConsI have to commute an hour each way. It is a big sacrifice especially with gas prices being as high as they are.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease share this scholarship opportunity further! It is such an honor to do great work for Michigan communities. Keep trusting Wayne State University students; we will amaze!

    A good OEM to work for especially those who have a passion for Automobile manufacturing experience.

    Lead Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Dearborn, MI

    ProsPay is competitive. Co-workers were very friendly and helpful. Good work ethics. Good training programs and vision by senior executives for people who are learning to handle the ropes and are looking for advancement. Enjoyable work environment.

    ConsI had a very strong desire to be associated with the company and grow but as a contract employee was unable to realize the dream. Some immediate supervisors do not seem to promote advancement of subordinates working for them. I feel that there is lacking in some supervisors and wish there was more openness between supervisor and employee when it comes to providing feedback of job duty accomplishments and identify the right fit for fellow employee and guide them to become successful. The supervisor may be an excellent person in his area of work individually but some are not cut out for the supervisor role which may hurt the company in losing good talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI wish there is a recognition for good deserving CONTRACT employees by way of providing job security for those who are genuinely interested in contributing to the growth of the company. More frequent and close interaction of the other team members (ie., including senior management personnel rather than just the supervisor feedback) with the employee may help in having a great coherent team which can be mutually beneficial to employee and the organization. Develop the LOYALITY factor between Corporate -Employee relation. FMC could take the lead in introducing this culture in our society.

    Neutral.

    Product Design Engineer (Current Employee) Dearborn, MI

    ConsHorrible Marketing and styling teams with no sense of time constraint killing Product. hard time retaining talent pool and/or passion of employee due to deep rooted nepotism and internal politics.

    What a joke!!

    Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsThe most unorganized company I have worked for. There is no training and you are thrown to wolves to learn. Not to mention the people are rude and disrespectful. Almost all my management coworkers are currently looking for other jobs. Also, you are expected to work 5-6 days a week at 12-13 hour days.

    ConsPay is decent. Decent resume builder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your crap together and manage like your in the 21st century.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
