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

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, good work-life balance, flexible working, Time allowed for self learning, good starting salary

    Cons

    Lack of progression, internal hiring process too complicated - easier to get a job outside of Ford than applying internally for a job on the same pay grade! Management is reluctant to offer a good level of training - you will find it very difficult to get funding for external training unless you are on one of the more modern-appearing teams.
