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

Pros

good technical experience, figuring out what the root cause of a problem was (this was around 2001) FCG program was a good experience.

Cons

management would not keep their promises. deadweight people. lack of priorities for the overall company. other engineers and mgmt like to blame the union workers for all quality problems. but they don't complain when they get all those vacation days! (i was not on the line or in the union)

Advice to Management

hopefully you understand the technical parts of what your workers do. stop letting the accountants run the company.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very helpful environment. The older employees are more than willing to help and give advice to new hires. There is never a dull moment and there is always work to keep you busy.

    Cons

    It can be a very high stress environment. Tempers can flare at times so you have to have thick skin.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Had to opportunity to get involved in several big and visible projects.
    Was blessed with great mentors and coworkers who where so nice that at first I thought they were trained that way but little did I know people working here are really just that nice and helpful!
    Great Pay!

    Cons

    Noticed some dead weight and people who truly take advantage of the independence at Ford.
    Also, some interns barely did anything while there and really took advantage of the freedom they where given.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye out for slackers. There are quite a few that are costing the company money in productivity.
