    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    *Opportunity to work on enterprise scale projects. *There are some very talented people if you try and network. *Company car is a great benefit.

    Cons

    *HR are terrible, only engaged them 4 times during my entire 10 years there and they were zero help. It was not a case they were unable, they didn't even bother pretending to try. *Some people are so far into their own bubble world, they have lost perception of reality. For a unknown reason to me, they are promoted into middle management. *Management are very slow to make decisions, despite all of the talk of wanting to be nimble, fast reacting and agile.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Wage was reasonable. The technical resources of a large company. Being part of a team that introduced exciting products to market.

    Cons

    Despite an annual "career path" review there were very limited opportunites for career growth. In the time I was with the company there was very little movement of people to help progress their careers. People tended to leave instead. Frustration due to how the processes were implemented - one program would implement a "global" process one way, while another program would do it differently. Lots of talk about making things better, but very little action.

  9. "Great Graduate program that allows for multiple role rotation"
