ProsDealing with highly professional, motivated, and talented individuals anywhere on the planet.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should spend 20% of their daily duties in human resource development and ask their subordinated to spend at least 5% of their time doing the same plus at least another 1 week/year of training.

Great Place To Work

Business IT Analyst (Current Employee)
Dearborn, MI

I have been working at Ford Motor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPlenty of opportunities to be exposed to many business units and new challenges. My current and past managers have supported opportunities to expand my skills in current and previous positions. Ford promotes maintaining a very good work life balance. Pay is good and so are bonuses.

ConsThere are still some employees that cling to the past Ford culture and are slow to change. It would be good if IT leaders promoted more of an Go Fast To Go Further mentality so I could respond faster to business requests.

Advice to Senior ManagementFord IT does need to provide more development opportunities to gain management skills for non supervisory employees so the skill set is established and demonstrated in the event of future openings.

Fair, well compensated

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Dearborn, MI

I have been working at Ford Motor full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAbove average benefits - bonus - compensation
Lots of opportunities
Good Management

ConsOlder outdated working conditions / offices
Older (than average) workforce

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a lot of opportunity at Ford. I do think the workforce needs to continue to be updated and energized. Projects and decisions do move slower than need be, and direction can be a bit vague. Keep advancing the people who put the company first, value the opportunity they have, and do not have a sense of entitlement! (ahem.. ms. woman don't move up and are replaced with men... Not the one's who are managers, they expected more of themselves, and there's quite a few)
