    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was with Ford for five years learned everything I know about automotive design. Couldn't ask for a better first job out of college. Of course some roles involved politics but what job doesn't.

    Cons

    Politics, occasional long hours, minimal recognition in certain organizations.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Starting pay, but after that the base pay does not keep up with inflation.

    Cons

    You will work long hours. No profit sharing. You will have to pay for health insurance and the coverage is poor. Hourly people get full profit sharing and fully paid health insurance. Also raises do not even keep up with inflation. Average raise is 1-2%. Management will tell you that get overtime so you should be happy.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat the salaried folk, (you like to use the word folk to describe people), better. Salaried workers on the floor at the Plants, which by the way make all the money for the company, are expected to have no life. You make people work 6/7 days a week. How about a new car at actual cost every couple years. That would be a real benny. A-plan is a joke, can get the same deal most of the time without it. How about profit sharing also. The AICP is a joke and was done to avoid paying the lower salaried grades so that management can have more money.
