    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.
