Supplier Technical Assistance Engineer (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – April 28, 2016
As a whole the company culture is great. I have no complaints, the possibility for advancement is a very good given performance. There is a gap in the company far as the employees. The age difference between employees and new hires is on average 10+ years from the recession in 2008. As a result, there is a gap in technology uses and limitations. The attitude to change is limited and specific to only a few areas and the old mentality of this is how it is and it won't change is very apparent in many areas. Data driven decisions are not always the voice of reason.
Product Development Engineer (Current Employee) – Michigan – April 12, 2016
Ford's is cursed by multiple criss cross management structures that must be run up and down the ladder to get anything done. Although they are receptive to new ideas at a low level, it takes quite a lot of pull to get this dinosaur to turn around. Work life balance is great, people are great, job security is great, prospects for advancement are minimal, engineering is mediocre.
Job security, people, work life balance
management structure, resistance to change, engineering
Assembly Production Worker (Former Employee) – Woodhaven, MI – April 11, 2016
The benefits are very generous and the hours are the best. Company has a union which looks out for your job. To me that is better than a "Right to work state" you can lose your job for anything at all.

People are super nice and supportive. I have learned a lot from my colleagues and managers about how to manage muti projects at the same time, dealing with different technical groups with different perspective.

Program Scheduler (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – April 6, 2016
Multi-task program milestone deliverable in fast paced work environment has long been what I considered a typical work day. Casual hours extend into evening work hours are a given and have fortunately been rewarded with a thoughtful management approach over the years.
Assistant Controller (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – April 6, 2016
Typical day includes multi-tasking. You learn to deal with people and how to manage multiple assignments. Co-workers are generally knowledgeable. The hardest part of the job is dealing with low achievers.
Great workplace. There are always availability to advance within the company and monthly bonuses. They have a great training period to allow you the ability to be properly prepared before working production.
Great experience when it come to learning engineering

This internship was hands on at times. I learned how to communicate with engineers about different projects and run meetings. I also learned how to use the program Teamcenter. I wish i did more engineering stuff.

Line Operator (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – March 29, 2016
I enjoyed the short time I had at Ford. They really didn't care about my medical problems dealing with my hand that's why I decided to quit. The hardest part about that job was trying to work with carpal. tunnel
