    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I don't believe in reviewing a work experience until you've had some time to put your experience in context. I worked for 6 years as a Financial Analyst at Ford, and I had unparalleled professional development at that time. The Finance function at Ford is one of the best in the world with decades of refined processes for budgeting and preparing business plans. There is a strong emphasis on the management team of providing analyst level employees with challenging assignments and high standards of work product and professionalism. Equally important is the emphasis on honesty and integrity, and I was never asked to modify any numbers in order to hit predetermined targets. The skills I learned in Ford Finance are highly transferable, and continue to make me a better Finance professional today.

    Cons

    Ford is full of talented individuals, and there are not enough management positions to develop of the great talent they recruit each year. In order to distinguish oneself for promotion, one has to be willing to accept special projects, work long hours, and prove their loyalty to one's boss. Once I left Ford, I confirmed what I had already expected; that Ford's talent pool is so good that they're expectations for promotion are out of line with the rest of the manufacturing sector. A surplus of talent is a good problem for Ford, but can feel stifling for talented up and coming professionals.
