    Pros

    Fairly compensated for job, great benefits, work life balance.

    Cons

    General salary roll employees are stuck in the middle between the Union and Management. While the Union takes more and more, and Management screws up the Company the little guys like us are left cleaning up the messes and doing all the work. And we are the ones losing our benefits, raises and bonuses year after year.

    Advice to Management

    Alan - your Managers still don't get ONE Ford - please bust the Union and teach managers to being such prima donnas and learn to roll model ONE Ford behaviors.

    Pros

    The size and scope of Ford ensures that you can get a broad experience in a number of areas. Ford strongly believes in rotations, so you will see many aspects of the business. They are also very strong believers in work-life balance.

    In IT, you will have the opportunity to work with just about every platform imaginable, on a scale found few other places. Ford still does almost all of its IT internally, so very little is outsourced. Information Security is an especially strong area of Ford IT.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, things move slowly. Because many employees have been there for decades, new ideas have real difficulty penetrating. Recent changes in management have dramatically improved this, and Alan Mulally is creating a culture of change, but this culture has not made it to IT, where old rules still apply.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the acceleration of change and recognition of the importance of the customer. An increased focus should be placed on the improvement of IT to support the business needs. IT process efficiency must also be addressed to reduce operational overhead costs.
