    I have been working at Ford Motor

    Pros

    Great top management. Willingness of improvement from top management. Transparence and share information, great team effort, cross function team and matrix report. Structured will to get things done with support people who love the company so much.

    Cons

    Midle management are not quite compentent as top managment. Too many levels, if eliminate 10 of those levels and make a flat managment organization, it will have great future for Ford to come back as the great company to work for as 10 yrs ago.
    Too many bad apples gangster in the midle managment to move things effectively. Revolution move to cut those non-values will save this old company to slip further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of LL levels and make it two levels for LL. encourage GSL level to be more specialist, promote the best in class working force by promote GSL who have management skill to be manager. Get rid of those bad apples and gangsters

    I have been working at Ford Motor

    Pros

    Wonderful people. I developed trusting relationships with those in my department and others within my first few months of working here. Most people at all levels truly care about one another's success. Ford Motor Company leads the rebound of the automotive industry, and it's exciting to have a role in the turn-around.

    Cons

    Recent economic pressure has led some employees to fear for their jobs. When people are driven by fear, political jockeying and sharp elbows prevail. Some lower and mid level managers have adapted to having smaller teams by digging in and working alongside those who report to them, while others still feel it is only their job to "manage" and babysit, not to contribute in any meaningful way. Ford is still quite management heavy, leaving little opportunity for promotions or growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify and promote high performers. Test competencies of very long term employees whose skills may have dwindled. Have cross-functional teams rate other global members of the team, using evaluations such as, "on a scale of 1 to 5, would you want to work on a team with this person again" and "this person put team goals ahead of personal project interests."
