    Good culture, work environment. Need to learn how to hang on to young talent

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Although, need to continue to improve upon flex hour availability
    Family culture, friendly office environment with fun people

    Cons

    -Feel I could have been shown more about business processes as an intern
    -Having a difficult time hanging on to young talent (recent grads). Most likely due to old fashioned styles of running the business, and lack of appeal for the automotive industry as a whole

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really work on making Ford an attractive business to work for to young people. I can see you are trying but it still needs improvement.

    Pros

    Nice supervisor, good working environment and culture.Good growth opportunities except for foreigners
    Very comfortable working, no high pressure.
    Great personnel.

    Cons

    Big company problem, slow reaction, low efficient meeting. Engineers only master the very narrow fields' knowledge. If you want to get answers to your questions, you need to ask at least 3 people.
    Bad communication. Sometimes If you don't cc the engineers' boss when you ask a question by email, you'll never get reply.

    Pros

    Ford as with the other "Big 3" auto manufacters have great benefits and large amount of vacation time. Pay isn't bad either, higher than most "outside" skilled trades positions.

    Cons

    Very little or no room for advancement. Even though the economy is showing some improvement it's hard not to have a precarious, uneasy feeling about the future of your career in the automotive industry, do inpart because of the economic climate here in the greater Detroit area.

    Pros

    Working for ford its self is a okay company. with good benefits and a nice salary with the chance of bonuses from quarter reviews. great health insurance and a stable company

    Cons

    Well the plant conditions are horrendous they could try more of the moral techniques. long hours worked and the physical and mental strain on the human body is well stretched. they hire just about anyone with any background which sometimes is not the best business decision. you start to feel trapped like you cant move up in the company. plus the union aren't as helpful as you would expect them to be. Overall its a blue collar setting job which leaves the door open for more then you would like expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice change the setting of the work place to a more calm and stress free atmosphere I bet work production and sale would continue to grow given the fact that your employees are truly satisfied. make ways for the company and union to work better so employees can move up in the company open more doors and change the whole medical system.
