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

    Pros

    Manager are very flexible with your current life schedule involving family related matters! This is a employee first company and they treat every individual the same! Keep it up Ford.

    Cons

    Only cons I would have is the distance between multiple building in Dearborn when attending meetings. This should be better once the Dearborn campus gets built.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    - one of the top ranked ethical company
    - vehicle engineering department cares about employee satisfaction
    - good products with some focus on HEV and BEV
    - amazing history with Henry Ford makes you proud of working for the company

    Cons

    - does not take as much risk to focus resources on emerging trends such as Electric vehicles. In other words, a little too complacent in getting the cash from gas cars and big trucks.
    - some amount of disconnect between what managers want the products to be and what customers care about.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. The internship was a very comfortable experience. They took us on trips relating to Fords history and major landmarks. We even got to drive the Ford line up on their race track!

    Cons

    Not much is expected of you. Seems easy to keep the job. The crowd is older due to attempts to retain experience after major layoffs from the recession

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - As a mechanical engineer, there are a lot of interesting projects to work on, depending on your interest.
    -Training opportunities,
    - family friendly (depending on the supervisor)

    Cons

    1) Sometimes difficult to move to a new job.
    2) Profit sharing is not competitive in the industry. As a non-supervisory design engineer with more than 10 years experience, profit sharing will be approximately $6,000 based on 2016 profit of $10.4 Billion. Using GM as a comparison, based on profit of $12.5 billion, a non-supervisory design engineer will receive profit sharing of approximately $23,500. Ford is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to cross functional development opportunities.
    Try to keep profit sharing competitive in the industry in order to attract good talent. If we keep being non-competitive in compensation, we will lose good talent and not be able to attract good talent.

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Great management
    Growth opportunities at every corner
    Competitive pay
    A world leading organization and gives back to the communities

    Cons

    No real cons I can think of. Hiring process is lengthy, contracted workers are often not given any indication whether they will be brought onboard or not and are often contracted for years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a good eye on your contracted workers especially the performers and making them employees before they move on.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time

    Pros

    I can pick three word to describe this position: Flexible, good salary, easy going people.

    Cons

    I can pick three word to criticize for this job: location, location, location...

    Advice to Management

    As a manager, the key difference is you no longer are evaluated as an individual contributor in the organization,
