I have been working at Ford Motor Company as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Great name to work for and a well structured 3 months. I enjoyed my time. Projects were dependent on your managers. Some were better the others. A great internship for someone with not a lot of experience.

Cons

A lot of politics, sometimes not a clear direction in work assignments - Again comes from your managers. Overall good experience.

Advice to Management

Take time to develop the interns skills - They are the future.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good pay and benefits; a couple of decent and very smart people; family like of environment if you are on the inside

    Cons

    back stabbing; not invented here mentality; can not speak up without being threatened to be placed on improvement plan; HR gives the lip services but will not protect you if your boss is on the mission to get rid of you; experienced lack of integrity in the upper management in the field

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people from outside to bring new blood and holdyour LL3+ responsible to keep the talent. This culture is totally outdated!
