    I have been working at Ford Motor Company as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid comp. time when over 40 hours/week as a Contract employee. The Ford salaried counterparts take time off to compensate for over 45 hours.

    Cons

    Feeling that Contract employees are hired to save a buck and are expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front on potential of becoming a Full time employee

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

    Pros

    Above average benefits, inclusive culture, diverse gender and race demographics, talented employees, ability to move around the company to build a career from.

    Cons

    The size of this place takes some getting used to when arriving from a smaller workplace; the employee must be the first line of defense when work/live balance is out of tune, as the culture is built around a can-do attitude - though usually management is respectful of this.

    Advice to Management

    Making decisions faster will be key to success among the competition. Let's find/use a method that moves faster.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It’s Ford, and it’s money.
    Nice cafeterias.
    Not sure what else to say... oh I know...
    I think I went over my 20 words... awesome!

    Cons

    Lots of contract workers who are not “worthy” to be employed by Ford. I have a friend that has been a contract worker for 20+ years, he interviewed for his current job at Ford. He failed the interview, but continued working as a contract worker for Ford... doing the exact same work. Doesn’t make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Pass

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

    Pros

    Good experience for a college grad. Products are good.

    Cons

    I was expected to work around the clock (I interacted with different regions). I worked massive amounts of overtime. Been in more meetings than I can count where someone was screamed at (not exaggerating). Management would blame their employees if something went wrong to upper management. Horrible culture. I left Ford the second I got a job offer from GM.

    Advice to Management

    RESPECT YOUR EMPLOYEES.

    Pros

    Great values, people, and benefits

    Cons

    Very traditional hierarchy, difficult to feel like your having an impact on the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Great wisdom within upper management. Have fewer layers of management to encourage more autonomy, impact, and ownership
