    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time

    Pros

    Great company! I have been there two years now. Always feel challenged creativity (which is a good thing). Love my co-workers and my ll6. Great people with great work ethic.

    Cons

    None at the moment. I've been with quite a few companies over the years and I think I've finally found my home for the Long haul.

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -People are great, feels like a family
    -Very relaxed and flexible environment
    -Pizza, nerf guns, plenty of food in the office, etc.
    -Compensation is very good for graduates
    -If you like to change jobs regularly without changing to a different company, you'll love it.
    -Plenty of young people right now, full of energy
    -If you like cars, you'll get the chance to do some exciting car activities!

    Cons

    -You get bombarded with business updates from different senior levels and it's impossible to follow all of them.
    -If you are someone with high aspirations, the company can feel like a slow mammoth.
    -There is little to no monetary reward for performance (although team recognition is generally outstanding)
    -There is practically no salary increase for experience, unless you get a promotion. This is bad for software engineers because many enjoy doing technical work, rather than management tasks.

    Advice to Management

    I do get enough opportunities to talk to management, so there is no need to post anything here.
