    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is wonderful way for employees to grow and contribute to company's success.

    Cons

    Takes time to come up with SMART objectives and it takes lot of time, thoughfulness and support from management to select objective which are in the interest of company as well as employee.

    Advice to Management

    Objectives; even though mandatory but considered low priority and I think part of the reason is that it is confusing. I think management needs to find a way to make it rewarding and most importantly create categories which are clear and concise.
