Generally a good level of debate and interaction with senior management however the culture is so risk adverse that no one will really make a decision so while someone can get on with that culture be prepared to have your experience and qualities in general ignored. The process driven procedures work if everyone knows what the process is ....
Pros
None
Cons
Short notice period no security

Enjoyed the few weeks spent there. Good secirity setup and procedures. Long treck from main road bus stop to actually get to the factory floor; no staff shuttle bus; got drenched by rain many a time, in spite of having an open umbrella. Wind blew rain against me from all directions.
Pros
Lunches were never free; and as a casual worker for a sub contractor, meals were not subsidised, so paid full price per item per meal.
Cons
No shuttle bus, and this a motor manufacturer.

FCE know what they are doing and how to get there. However they lack certain business knowledge within some IT teams and believe that adopting Agile technology will help them understand how to design robust business systems. Design decisions have been made based on little business knowledge. This may well backfire at some stage. I do hope not.
Pros
Progressive and supportive
Cons
Belief that Agile can deliver well designed mission critical systems

My experience is from the 12 week project for the UK Ventilator Challenge so i do not have a full understanding of the workings for the actual Ford engine plant. The atmosphere whilst working for this project was of trying our best in such a short time to achieve the impossible. But we did it , 12000 units in 12 weeks.
Pros
Decent rate of pay
Cons
No canteen facilities due to Covid.

Ford are a great employer that will be sorely missed in the local economy once the factory closes having provided well paid employment for many years.

Ford know where they are going and they know the kind of people who can help them get there. They are a caring respectful company who take care of their people. There is a very positive 'can do' culture there and it shows in the results achieved by the employees
Pros
Positive forward thinking culture
Cons
Global solutions are not always best

Lots of stress, constant pressure, no meritocracy, most of the Managment staff are just incompetent with no skill. They micromanage all your work, HR doesn’t exist, no significant benefits. Toxic environment! Simply the worst!

I was employed for nearly ten years and although shifts were tiring, it was a well paid and rewarding job. The work provided my family with a good pay and security enjoying a good lifestyle. It was a shock to everyone that the plant was to close but staff achieved much experience in order to find further employment.
Pros
Pay, team work
Cons
Shifts
