    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good for location. Depending on what department you are in, projects can be engaging. Big company, job security, if you work just a little hard then you'll be above average

    Cons

    Not a culture or environment for young ppl unless a die hard Ford fan that's super loyal to just wanting to work at Ford. Not competitive in retaining young ppl, having positive working culture. Does not live by the "One Ford" motto that it used to. Huge turnover for 50% for young ppl.

    Really hard to leave a department that you work in even if you find another department that you love and they want to take you.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to make Ford competitive with other tech and manufacturing companies but not soon enough or urgent enough

    Pros

    Always something new, extremely busy, fast paced environment. I thrive in high pressure, intense situations, where time is always a factor.

    Cons

    Don't have any cons, I loved working at Ford Motor Company. Only left for better job stability.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your management team, those that are making things happen and getting the job done, going above and beyond expectation in all aspects of their job.
