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

    Pros

    If you have no motivation and want to have life time employment then Ford is perfect for you. Just drive a Ford, don't make waves and be pleasant and you are set.
    There are a few pockets of sanity in IT

    Cons

    Bureaucracy prevents work. Leadership routinely backstab each other. Leadership promotes and encourages BossHole behavior while simultaneously trying to tell low level employees to change the Ford Culture from bottom up. Managers refuse to allow talented employees to switch jobs, instead they burn em up and then throw em out. Most talented employees quit, leaving the dregs.
    Much of IT is offshored to India. Poor pay. Once you are hired your annual raises will never keep up with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the BossHoles. Recognize that the jerks always running their mouths contribute little.
