    Ford in India

    Analyst (Current Employee) Chennai

    Pros1) Great work-life balance.
    2) People are quite helpful in general and a good focus is laid on development of the individual.
    3) Employees are reasonably protected from Ford's performance globally.
    4) Good senior management with an excellent drive.
    5) Initial growth is slow, but once you establish yourself and show potential, you move up really fast and exciting opportunities open up.

    Cons1) Too many mediocre people clogging up positions in middle management with no hope of ever going into top management. Shouldn't they move on?
    2) Excessive emphasis on positive morale makes you giggle when people get 'recognized' even while doing nothing significant. Disagreement is a strict no-no and constructive criticism is generally taken as challenging authority (although this would depend on the individual, my manager and director are cool people).
    3) Heavily bureaucratic on an average.
    4) The recruitment system needs a complete overhaul.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverhaul recruitment
    Up or out system
    We're in 2013, not in 1922.
