    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.
