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

    Pros

    Typical auto industry benefits. Flexible hours for salaried positions. Appropriate salaries with well structured bonus system. You know where you lie. Technical and management career paths are well planned.

    Cons

    Too big for their own good at times. Tangible and occasionally blatant level of disrespect towards certain positions. Where you start in the company can greatly impact your attitude and optimism. Middle management seems to be a bunch of bobble-head yes men.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say no to your boss when you know a task can't be done properly in the given amount of time and work out an appropriate solution. Communicate!

    Pros

    Great culture. The work is demanding enough to where you won't get bored. It really is a team effort. Everyone is willing to help you.

    Cons

    As a CBG buyer, i have limited mobility to explore other regions of the company. For example marketing, manufacturing, or product development. I feel as though i will primarily be in a buyer role.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to increase opportunities for mobility. This will help give employees a better outlook of the company and possibly increase retention.

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement if you make yourself stand out. Pays well with nice benefits. Access to a lot of training opportunities. Good work life balance except when you're on a launch.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the crowd. All depends on your manager. A lot of people are stuck in the "this is how we've always done it" mindset which can make some things frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Have regular 1 on 1 meetings with your employees.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and some benefits. Training is very good and there is a lot to learn especially in the press area of the plant.

    Cons

    Management expects everyone to live in the plant. Most people have families and it is almost impossible to have a work life balance that claim they have.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way for Process Coaches to spend more quality time with thier families. What good is it to make alot of money when you can't enjoy it?
