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

    Pros

    Work life balance- management is very understanding of family situation and hours. The best in the industry in terms of that. Compensation is competitive and inventions are highly encouraged

    Cons

    1 great supervisor/manager per every 9 below average/average supervisors/managers. There seems to be slight fear with management->upper management interaction. Lack of "leadership" traits exist sometimes and recognition can be poor. Sometimes tedious assignments are dished out to the new and young rather than to those who can evenly own a task. Assignments created without input from a manager's own team and sometimes can be of no value to the project or company. If you get hired into a department EXPECT to stay within that department for life! During an interview Ford sells all the different departments you can work in, but in reality departments do a terrible job of making it possible for new hires-vets to switch a department if they find a new skillset they are interested in.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN MORE. Just LISTEN and hear what the people that do these tasks have to say or suggest. Don't be afraid of upper managers (get rid of the hierarchy style culture). Make decisions quicker. Sometimes decisions needed drag on for a year because a manager is afraid to tell his manager that something needs to happen. Help align targets and deliverables between departments. Sometimes we feel like we are fighting with our own company inter-department. Lastly, help those that want to experience new skills within Ford, achieve their goals to do so. People feel like if they voice interest in another ford commodity that their department will undermine them

    Advice to Management

    Create an atmosphere where employees love their job. Don't be so chintzy with salary/merit increases. With some exceptions, department heads need to realize they need to share information with everyone.
