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

I worked at Ford Motor for 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.

    Current Employee - Global Purchasing Intern  in  Dearborn, MI (US)
    Current Employee - Global Purchasing Intern in Dearborn, MI (US)

    I have been working at Ford Motor as an intern for more than a 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.

    Former Employee - Product Analyst in Valencia, Carabobo (Venezuela)

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

    Pros

    - It helps you build up your resume
    - It provides you a great deal of business jargon and methodologies
    - It promotes cross-cultural works and projects (India, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, USA, Venezuela)

    Cons

    - Being a US based company it follows american standards and laws that does not necessarily apply or adapt to other cultures
    - Sometimes is too focused on seniority rather than factual experience or knowledge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on factual experience, knowledge and potential rather than seniority
