Former Employee - Product Development Engineer in Dearborn, MI
Former Employee - Product Development Engineer in Dearborn, MI
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

10 days off at Christmas time.
Employee discount when buying a vehicle.

Cons

Workload increases as more and more people eliminated.
Extreme pressure.
Dog eat dog, everyone looking over their shoulder at who is watching them.
Benefits steadily eaten away.
No defined pension, no 401K match, no merit increases, no salary increases, increased health care costs (while benefits are reduced)
Work life balance preached but rarely practiced.
Who you know more important than what you know.
Downsizing and job elimination based on cost savings not on expertice, experience and ability to help the company.

Advice to Management

In your attempt to right the years of your predecessors neglecting the business in order to get their bonuses and then golden parachute out of the corporation, deferring the gradual downsizing to match the continued loss of market share and the unwillingness to stand up to the governments efforts to open our markets to those who do not open theirs to our vehicles and the elimination of middle class to the benefit of those in foreign countries to improve their economic position, please review your method for selecting whose job will be "eliminated".
Instead of making the decision based on cost, take into consideration the persons experience both within and outside the company, for they may be able to be moved into an area where "elimination" has taken place and produce to expectation.

    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.
