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

Pros

Management empowers its employees while providing excellent on the job training. There is a business like atmosphere but the people treat you like family.

Cons

Employee relations seems to be trying to driving everyone to the midpoint of the salary range. It can be very discouraging.

Advice to Management

Leave more room in performance reporting to diferentiate top employees. Either you are the very best or you are lumped in with 90% of the employees

    Pros

    Resources of a large company make it interesting. Many skilled and knowledgeable people to learn from. Creativitiy is rewarded if it results in a cost savings.

    Cons

    Almost like working for the government, it's so large one department doesn't know what the other ones do. Very political, makes career progress difficult 5 years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the chimneys and let people do their jobs
