Former Employee - Senior Systems Administrator in Dearborn, MI (US)

I worked at Ford Motor (more than 10 years)

Pros

Always something to do, rarely ever bored. Huge environment, application infrastructures from small one-offs to large enterprise scale, global operations

Cons

Highly politicized environment. What is best for the company sometimes takes a back seat to internal politics, to the detriment of the IT trench soldier attempting to execute tasks. Heavy paperwork & process onus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actively pursue communication with non-management personnel, both positive and negative, for mid-course corrections can only improve morale.

    I worked at Ford Motor as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great experience. Ford treats the interns to many extra activities that are amazing once in a lifetime occurances.

    Cons

    No real cons in the 12 weeks I was there. I loved the global network I had access to. Everyone was so helpful in working meetings in for me etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some acclimation time for the intern. Even a week would be helpful to give them time to do some KFS training before dropping a major project in their lap.

    I have been working at Ford Motor as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great name to work for and a well structured 3 months. I enjoyed my time. Projects were dependent on your managers. Some were better the others. A great internship for someone with not a lot of experience.

    Cons

    A lot of politics, sometimes not a clear direction in work assignments - Again comes from your managers. Overall good experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to develop the interns skills - They are the future.
