    Pros

    You are your Master. That's the best policy at Ford. Independence to think in your lines, and bring the best to the table. There is room for improvement at all times in all areas.

    Cons

    You need to be a self starter. Got to have the speed in learning. No room, if you are repeating the same mistakes again and again

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team meetings to get the best out of the empolyees must be frequent. Exchange of perspective will gives a broader picture
