    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time

    Pros

    - Challenging Projects but also Challenging Environment
    - Many years of experience creating and selling vehicles
    - Plenty of knowlegeable and helpful corowrkers
    - Opportunities to learn lots of interesting material
    - Competitive salaries

    Cons

    - company leadership vision lacking for electric vehicles
    - stubborn engineering practices leads to difficulty collaborating
    - corporate machine moves slowly
    - work environment options limited (cubicles)
    - Dearborn isn't a great place for company headquarters

    Advice to Management

    Currently Ford has excellent market presence selling conventional powertrain vehicles, but pivoting to new technology and commitment from leadership should be more obvious. The hybrid group shouldn't be considered the mad scientists, rather the future of the company.
