    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The salary for the work you do is good.

    Cons

    Badly managed. Top heavy with managers. Union won’t allow management to make any real changes as it may upset some of the “senior workers”. Shift patterns involve doubling back from night shift to afternoon shift and afternoon shift to morning shift. This can’t be changed as it may upset the “senior workers”.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look around and see how many staff and workers are paid to do jobs that have no purpose. Get rid of the seniority rule. If a worker is useless get rid of them. Also try promoting on ability and skills not golf buddies.

    Top managers just manage the business and let area managers run their areas! To many on floor decisions made in front office rather than in a foreman’s office who knows more about the operations
