    I worked at Ford Motor Company (UK) as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being an car OEM there is a lot you can get experience of such as working on programmes for different markets, working with a lot of people from different countries as well as the various technical areas (planning, R&D, development, production, costs, volumes, etc.)

    Cons

    A lot of meetings which accomplish little. Some people seem to have excessive work loads, others very little. Many managers seem to be in the position for reasons other than ability.

    Worst of all, there a lot of people who have been there a long time, perhaps envious of the degree-level younger staff and generally disillusioned with their own lives and careers, who are a pain to work with. A lot of younger employees then seem to either fall into a similar attitude or get frustrated and leave.
