    Pros

    Ford is a very laid back environment but you have a lot of competition from other individuals. Great company to work for but watch out for another recession.

    Cons

    There really arent any problems I had with Ford motor Company. I lost my job because of the economy. Who didnt?

    Advice to Management

    I think that problems take too long to resolve once a decision is made. That is about it on that.

    Pros

    Ford is a great place to get some experience. You get a chance to see how a big company works and see new vehicles. The finance rotation program is good, but more say in what rotation you receive would be better.

    Cons

    Depending on what part of the company of the company you are in the managers could be great or they could really suck. Ford is still suffering from problems of management wanting to hide problems so they don't look bad. Management rather shuffle heads around than hire more heads when it is obvious that your employees have worked extremely long hours.

    Depending on which dept you are in the work can be dull.

    The company is older and lacks many young employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to retain and attract young employees. Mulally is doing a great job.
