Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Well structured business procedures and highly experienced management team. Overall a very buttoned-down organization with great IT group and facilities. Location in Oakville, ON is also a plus.

Cons

Decision making power lies in the US, all support services are out-sourced to the US or india. Skeleton workforce is maintained to keep business running in Canada. As a result few employees are excited about their work and work-life balance is a constant difficulty.
