    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ford Motor Company for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ford pay the engineers a decent amount if you get into the Ohio assembly plant as a worker you can get paid just as much if not more than the engineers.

    Cons

    unfortunately have people that have worked there for decades that have developed a poor work life balance that they then expect out of you. line workers on the floor can make more money than engineers

    Advice to Management

    when people are at home from work don't expect an instant reply.
