    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generally friendly management and co-workers.

    Cons

    Some archaic systems and bureaucracy that add time for approvals. Agency workers effectively get no raises and getting hired direct is very difficult despite excellent performance.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Uaw holidays are good, some autonomy in job but little or no ability for development or promotion

    Cons

    Pay is low for engineers or maybe only for females, raises are super low, vacation time is not competitive, no development, you better line your job, you’ll be doing it forever.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for experience and competence and doing supervisors work,

    I worked at Ford Motor Company for more than a year

    Pros

    Overtime Pay. Large company with training opportunities. On site food services

    Cons

    Long working hours. Poor morale and work culture. Too much bureaucracy. Lots of finger pointing and animosity between team. Very few opportunities to move around due to hiring freeze and initiative to reduce overall workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on positive reinforcement towards supervisors and employees and less on blame and punishment. It seemed to me that everyone was afraid of their managers and the possibility of losing their jobs. As a result no one would ever take responsibility for their mistakes and would focus more on political games in an effort to blame others for mistakes or take credit for the success of others. Overall this was the worst...

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company for more than a year

    Pros

    Surround yourself with decades and decades of experience, great mix of new and senior engineers, excellent environment to grow personally and professionally. Training is constant and available for those who seek for it, Certification available if you prove you have the knowledge. Best job experience I've had after working in another smaller OEM for 4 years.

    Cons

    It's a contract position, expect no benefits at all besides the supposedly discounted rate for health care plan. Hard to contact upper management for salary and benefits negotiation.(Again not Ford, the agency). Almost impossible to get a direct hire position.

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

    Pros

    D&R position had great work life balance. Christmas shutdown was nice.

    Cons

    Convoluted processes, loads of bureaucracy, misleading middle management, insulated upper management, low employee moral

    Advice to Management

    Cut middle management positions, focus on simplifying processes & decision making to cut costs, empower employees to own their work & live or die by their successes or failures, get out of the way
