    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time

    Pros

    Great company! I have been there two years now. Always feel challenged creativity (which is a good thing). Love my co-workers and my ll6. Great people with great work ethic.

    Cons

    None at the moment. I've been with quite a few companies over the years and I think I've finally found my home for the Long haul.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, amazing products (Mustang and F Series). Great people on the working level.

    Cons

    There are a lot of challenges in the future. It's not clear how the autonomous investments will work and if Ford can survive as an Auto 2.0 Company.

    Advice to Management

    Really commit to Hackett's approach otherwise we are wasting time.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great family oriented company, people are amazing to work with. Depending what groups you get flexible working arrangements like TWA (alternative work schedules) or job sharing, etc. You also get work from home flexibility depending on your job profile. Some jobs don't allow WFH.

    Cons

    Promotions are very political and slow to come by if you are not on the "Dream Team" and don't know the "Right People" who will vouch for you.

    Advice to Management

    Need to revamp the Finance People Development Culture. Need to be more open on what jobs are internally available like other groups within Ford do by posting jobs on an internal job site. Too much politics within Finance management. Need to reduce bureaucracy. Jim Hackett has several initiatives to reduce bureaucracy waiting to see how it all plays out. I really do like this company and how much pride people have making Ford products.

    Pros

    Great work life balance.

    Cons

    There isn't much engineering or development done at Ford in the electrical and software fields (mostly done at suppliers).
    There is a duplication of teams and effort
    Many teams will reinvent the wheel instead of working together and leveraging each other.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing or you will have no business left... Just a brand...
