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

Pros

Excellent engineering processes
Colleagues are passionate about the products they design and engineer (most are, anyway)
Global company, job variety, cultural diversity
Great engineering facilities
Strong focus on quality improvement

Cons

So many different engineering processes to track or follow takes up a lot of the engineering time.
US-centric development processes and targets can miss the mark in other regions
You have to love the job because hours are long and pay is low w.r.t. other engineering jobs
Low quality work environment
Chaotic approach to cost reduction

Advice to Management

Show passion and enthusiasm for the work your teams do. Encourage cooperation between departments. Seek to simplify processes and communication channels.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers were the best part of the job. They made the job tolerable. Benefit of being able to perform maintenance on your own vehicle.

    Cons

    There's a lack of respect from the management staff towards the employees who are responsible for hard work that makes the company money. Unfair pay for having to purchase your own, expensive, equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect to your employees and help them grow instead of putting them down.
