    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of people who are passionate about designing a better vehicle for the customer.
    The group that I work in are very very good at what they do, and are always willing to help out if you are struggling something.
    Its also great to be part of a great company at ford, the corporate culture encourages employees of different departments to work together, I won't deny there has been friction with working in other departments but compared to working at other automotive companies this place is better.
    The benefits are also great as well.
    ford is investing not only in new facilities, but they are also hiring new engineers.
    I also like a casual working environment, Ford is fine with you wearing jeans and a polo to work, they suggest if you are meeting with suppliers. Also Ford encourages its employees to telecommute once a week typically Friday, but it isn't required.

    Cons

    Unless you live in Dearborn, the commute to work is pretty bad, traffic on Southfield (M39) or 94 is pretty bad. I wish there were better cafeteria options for Food, usually you have to go out to eat if you don't pack, but one of the best Thai restaurants in the Metro Detroit area is 10 min from Ford's campus. Parking can be an issue if you work at EVB

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you wish to attract and retain talent from Gen Y , you have to be more bold in making decisions and do actual work rather than sticking with an age old process and pleasing people in dearborn

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    have many benefits. Mainly they concentrate on work life balance, strict with harassment policies.

    Nice place to work and you will be respected always and we can question anyone anytime because of its open door policy.

    had really nice experience working in the environment.

    competitive salary comparing other companies.

    Cons

    Some projects really should be decommissioned.

    they have more legacy applications and standard projects which hardly require support personnel.

    i wont recommend it for a fresher and people much passionated towards coding

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide more opportunities to freshers and concentrate on their growth by providing the job that they are really satisfied
