    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time

    Pros

    Comfortable, and relaxed work place.

    Cons

    Ford, like many automotive companies, is trying to become a software / services company and they are struggling... a lot. Management has not idea how software works or how to manage it. They have a very old school mentality and are desperate for change but can't seem to figure out how to go about it.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on people that are experienced in managing software and technology. Don't try to copy tech companies. Hire the right people and have the change happen organically.

    Pros

    Great "team" attitude. Everyone is here to support and help each other succeed. Lots of opportunity to switch departments and career path. Work-life balance.

    Cons

    It feels like no one is here to innovate. They all just want to get the minimum amount of work done to meet their objectives. A lot of times the answer is "no" rather than "let's do it, let's figure it out."

    Advice to Management

    Use the FCGs. So much wasted potential by not giving them more responsibility. You're going to lose a lot of us, if you don't give us more opportunity and trust.
