    Pros

    Great products you can be proud of, lots of training availalbe

    Cons

    Could not move within departments due to understaffing, could not get tuition reimbursement in my department, hiring manager did not specify how long "relocation" would be for launch programs. Really not "travel" for work, was relocated for year or more and failed to tell anyone that was being hired that.

    Pros

    If you want a dog eat dog company where everyone is out for themselves, this is it. Great company to work for if you are a minority woman.

    Cons

    Management takes care of themselves. Don't bother requesting assistance from your superiors, they will only downgrade your for inconveniencing them.

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

    Pros

    -Decent base pay if not on launch -Good benefits

    Cons

    -Terrible work/life balance when on launch. Consistently work 12+ hour days including weekends. Position is said to have 6-9 months on launch with a break in between launches, but most likely put on back-to-back launches (lasting up to 18 months onsite at assembly plant away from family) with little to no downtime in between programs. -Base pay is decent if not on launch. However, on launch, employees are required to work 2 hours for free everyday (only get paid OT if you work over 10 hours). This greatly reduces base pay, especially given the frequency of 10-12 hour days. -Most upper management is very poor and will throw employees under the bus for their own gain. Management usually succumbs to making employees do things outside of their job role -Can't retain younger talent due to job requirements and not valuing employees. -Extremely high turn over and poor job satisfaction among younger employees. Manufacturing primarily consists of younger employees <3 who are trying to get vested or people with pensions. -Toxic work environment on launch programs.
