    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1) If you are in the right team, co-workers can be very helpful. 2) fairly relaxed atmosphere. flexible work hours. 3) re-designing the cafeterias, campuses

    Cons

    1) Supervisors/Managers are absolutely incompetent. They will not rock the boat or make any decision that will impact their employment and thus their pension. They do not know how to manage employee conflicts, or request for work assistance. Their standard approach is: be quiet or it goes in your performance review. 2) Co-workers will openly insult you in meetings, call you stupid/idiot if you do not agree with their strategy or question their engineering approach. 3) Most of my co-workers are very bitter because they feel they haven't been given their due promotion or salary increase. So they will refuse to help any newer co-worker or put in any extra effort that involves work outside of their assigned project or causes them to put a few minutes outside of 8 hrs a day. Else they demand that their assigned project deadline be delayed or they get paid overtime, even if they are salaried. So they will basically ask you to re-invent the wheel unless they are compensated. 4) Ford employees who have been around for a while are very good at making look like they do work, when in reality they are just good at coming up with a million obstacles about why something cant be done. The incompetent supervisor, since he/she doesnt know enough, will just go along and buy the excuse. Then employee will spend most of the time on the internet or talk about NFL.
