Overall Reviews at Ford Motor Company
Good Company - Manufacturing is Difficult
Even Elon Musk has said that "prototypes are easy, manufacturing at scale is difficult." Ford has a good culture but has many old-school managers. Working in manufacturing is an inherently difficult, high-stress, environment. New leadership is providing a positive direction. It remains to be seen if they can deliver on the promise of culture change.
ProsGood compensation. Management tries to be flexible.
ConsStress, travel, on-call lifestyle.
Large Industry Company
No real job security. Best to keep your skills sharp. Sections are very hard to switch from. But mostly you are left to do your work. And work conditions are good
I loved working at Ford Motor Co. It was a great atmosphere and teammates were always great and willing to help. The management was forthcoming and direct.
Flexible work from home and hours
Manage daily IT operations in Supply Chain and Ford Credit. Lead software development required to support changing business needs. Support teams personal needs.
ProsThe people and relationships.
ConsInternal competition for advancement.
Great family oriented company, great training, but pay is way behind its competitors
Major corporation but still ran by the Ford Family. They are great people to work with and are very approachable and down to earth type people.
Excellent place to launch your career in automotive business. The education and training is the best in the industry. Just don’t stay forever, the pay is 40% less than any other similar companies.
Ford is a great environment - For it's employees
Ford has a great reputation within its own walls, for how much it cares about the work hours and leisure time of its employees. Great effort is put into making this group feel needed and appreciated.
Great pay and benefits
The pay and benefits are amazing, but the stress and long demanding hours are very taxing on the mind and body. The love-hate relationship between management and the union is childish at best. A very interesting experience.
Good company to work.Nice work environment...But No job security on contract position.No salary hike on contract position.Good learning and product exposure.
The people to work with at Ford are great. Through my 33 years I was able to build a lot of friendships and have a lot of fun. The workplace environment is very nice.
tough committed hard working people
very dedicated group of employees. teams are very committed to working collaboratively to deliver great vehicles and service solutions. very long hours and team members sacrifice lots of personal time to support the end results
