  9. Skilled Trade at the Ford Motor Company

    Pros

    They are like a family there, everyone says hi in the morning and have a good night when you leave at the end of the day.

    Cons

    I did have to spend some time in the foundry, which was the dirtiest place at Ford.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people on the floor, they have good ideas that can help the company. I know that a lot of management want to protect their jobs but they can add some positive input.

  10. Alan Mulally's mindset has not filtered down to the shop floor.

    Pros

    The new CEO is a non automotive guy and that's a positive. Hopefully he can break the mold and the mindset that infects the automotive industry.

    Cons

    The old guard are still set in their ways. I guess they never received Mulally's memo about changing the way they operate on the floor.

    Pros

    Well structured business procedures and highly experienced management team. Overall a very buttoned-down organization with great IT group and facilities. Location in Oakville, ON is also a plus.

    Cons

    Decision making power lies in the US, all support services are out-sourced to the US or india. Skeleton workforce is maintained to keep business running in Canada. As a result few employees are excited about their work and work-life balance is a constant difficulty.
