    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    To get paycheck to pay the bill.

    Cons

    Way too much BS, bureaucracy, politics. Nothing gets implemented after the team was established 4-5 years ago. Does the team have the meaning/value to even exit? Again, this is the review for the specific position/team.

    Advice to Management

    Direct supervisor lacks the skills to motivate/reward people, resulting in little motivation among colleagues.
