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

    Pros

    The FCG program allows rotations through several departments to sample each one. However, the experience quality and structure can vary drastically. My experiences have varied from good to terrible.

    Cons

    Inside the FCG rotations managment and mentoring has varied widely. I have been essentially ignored for the duration of rotations. On other rotations there has been decent management to assign tasks and direct efforts. Overall pretty bad experience in the program.

    Advice to Management

    The people that work in the rotation departments usually have multiple years of experience. The FCG's that come in don't know anything about anything. What is second nature to 99% of the work force is completely new to most FCG's. Managment needs to take a step back an look at the broad view of their work and introduce them at that level. This will create a sound foundation for work in the future. Currently the methodology for FCG work is to immediately stuff them down a technical rabbit hole where they might have a glimmer of knowledge or ignore there existence.

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you are a newcomer in the field. Good pay, good benefits. and the environment is pretty straight also

    Cons

    lack of growth for employees and the upper management will not even look at regular employees and that usually says a lot of negative for the company, but i guess thats a good thing
