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

    Pros

    - As a mechanical engineer, there are a lot of interesting projects to work on, depending on your interest.
    -Training opportunities,
    - family friendly (depending on the supervisor)

    Cons

    1) Sometimes difficult to move to a new job.
    2) Profit sharing is not competitive in the industry. As a non-supervisory design engineer with more than 10 years experience, profit sharing will be approximately 6% or $6,000 based on 2016 profit of $10.4 Billion. Using GM as a comparison, based on profit of $12.5 billion, a non-supervisory design engineer will receive profit sharing of 11-13% of base salary with a 165% multiplier or ~$23,500.
    Hopefully Ford will improve compensation in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to cross functional development opportunities.
    Try to keep profit sharing / compensation competitive in the industry in order to attract good talent. If we keep being non-competitive in compensation, we will lose good talent and not be able to attract good talent.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time

    Pros

    Meet several good people who can become life-long friends

    Cons

    Too long working hours, constantly work over time and work over weekend. The overtime situation was not told during interview. Job was not what was described during interview. Hard to transfer within Ford.

    Advice to Management

    I am sure managers know these issue. But they chose to pretend there is no problems and to lie to employee.

    Pros

    Big company resources. Reasonable culture. Work Life balance is probably a bit too-lifey in my honest opinion.

    Normal big company stuff. Delayed advancement for younger workers.
