    Pros

    Great top management. Willingness of improvement from top management. Transparence and share information, great team effort, cross function team and matrix report. Structured will to get things done with support people who love the company so much.

    Cons

    Midle management are not quite compentent as top managment. Too many levels, if eliminate 10 of those levels and make a flat managment organization, it will have great future for Ford to come back as the great company to work for as 10 yrs ago.
    Too many bad apples gangster in the midle managment to move things effectively. Revolution move to cut those non-values will save this old company to slip further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of LL levels and make it two levels for LL. encourage GSL level to be more specialist, promote the best in class working force by promote GSL who have management skill to be manager. Get rid of those bad apples and gangsters

    I worked at Ford Motor

    Pros

    10 days off at Christmas time.
    Employee discount when buying a vehicle.

    Cons

    Workload increases as more and more people eliminated.
    Extreme pressure.
    Dog eat dog, everyone looking over their shoulder at who is watching them.
    Benefits steadily eaten away.
    No defined pension, no 401K match, no merit increases, no salary increases, increased health care costs (while benefits are reduced)
    Work life balance preached but rarely practiced.
    Who you know more important than what you know.
    Downsizing and job elimination based on cost savings not on expertice, experience and ability to help the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In your attempt to right the years of your predecessors neglecting the business in order to get their bonuses and then golden parachute out of the corporation, deferring the gradual downsizing to match the continued loss of market share and the unwillingness to stand up to the governments efforts to open our markets to those who do not open theirs to our vehicles and the elimination of middle class to the benefit of those in foreign countries to improve their economic position, please review your method for selecting whose job will be "eliminated".
    Instead of making the decision based on cost, take into consideration the persons experience both within and outside the company, for they may be able to be moved into an area where "elimination" has taken place and produce to expectation.
