    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.

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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. I get to work from home on Fridays. Very friendly family atmosphere even though it's a very big company. Pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Ford does not pay a competitive salary, no matter what metrics HR shows or what they tell employees. Ford does not pay it's employees well. Whether it's annual salary or the bonus, Ford pays A LOT less than other companies like GM. Also, there's no upward advancement opportunities unless you're in exactly the right place at the right time. I'm doing LL6 work (leadership level...think management) as a GSR8 (general salary role with 8 being the highest level). However, I have not gotten commitment from my direct manager to put me on the "Ready to Interview" list. Without getting on the list I can't interview for management positions. I'm not a unique situation. There are many GSR8 employees experiencing the same thing I am. They are leaving the company in droves to go to GM, Uber, Amazon, or Apple. I'm currently looking too.

    Advice to Management

    When you have your 3rd best financial year in the company's history, don't tell your employees they're only getting 76% of their targeted bonus. It has killed employee morale for many of us who work really hard! Do I count on the bonus? No! But when you offer employees a bonus, their hard work and excellent performance should be rewarded!
