Current Employee - Software Engineer in Dearborn, MI
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Dearborn, MI

I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Much better now since Mulally is here. I love the sense of community in my department and the ease of getting things done.

Cons

I dislike the area - especially Wayne county. Sometimes the demands from senior management can be too demanding. Overall the job as an engineer is working out great.

Advice to Management

Better computer systems - very complicated.

    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

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    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
