Great while it lasted

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great company to work for, until it decided to close us down. Always last to know what was going on with constant rumours and counter rumours and never anyone to quash them.

Risk adverse and culture of no decision making

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

Stay away and don’t even think to buy a Ford

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!

Pros

None

Cons

Stress

Great place to work

I worked at Ford for 2 years and found all the staff friendly amd helpful. Management were always fair and inclusive. I had a good work life balance. Contract ended early due to Covid-19. I would return as it has a great work ethic and culture.

Pros

Friendly, Busy work environment

Cons

Contract worker not included in some aspects.

Good company to work for

Generally good management, good work life balance and maternity cover, the company looks after you to an above average standard. Long history sometimes causes set mindset but slowly changing

Excellent Place to work

Friendly environment but still hierarchical. You are encouraged to take control of your work and be free but in practical sense of things, your manager or supervisor still retains the right to let your idea, suggestion or culture shine through.

Pros

Collaborative, fun environment

Cons

Hierarchical management, slow decision making.

Pays well

Good pay, cradle to grave management does not work as managers were once working alongside people they now have to supervise, this doesn't work as most supervisors were the lazy or incompetent ones in the company and rather than getting rid the company moved them into this position after a poor internal recruitment drive. Many supervisors have made wrong decisions for many years and will continue to do so, this does not help the business. Very little opportunity to advance in any role within Ford Motor Company as the plants run on seniority, which again damages the business as the longer the service the lazier the employee. Sounds bitter I know, I only stayed for the good wage Ford paid me, people there are also terrible.

Most calm place to work at

The work, even though fast paced was quite collaborative. There was a good team spirit amongst colleagues. Management was helpful assisting with problem solving and open to ideas. There was always an opportunity to present new ideas. Work life balance was good. There was never a time when there was friction between colleagues.

They are smart.

Excellent training. Helpful company culture, slightly slow to accept the outside world that exists outside the Ford bubble. They want you to succeed. Loyalty is valued and reciprocated. There are a lot worse companies to work for!

Just a sad poor place to work on

Really, don't waste you time with FCE. Plenty of less arrogant companies to work for. There is an arrogant culture in the place that doesn't allow for actual good work to happen. Management is one sad joke and progression is basically based on how many buddies do you have inside

Car sales executive

Not really as helpful as they claim they are no hunger or determination into wanting to get the job done possible sign of laziness..dealership full of favouritism and politics expect you to do as you’re told and no have a say in any conversation whatsoever

Productive place

My bosses were excellent and there was no micro management. Contractors can have a very long career there. Salary is competitive but now they have moved to PDO, PMO team is being disbanded and contractors have left.

Good Employer - but not committed to UK

Ford have been a brilliant company to work for over the years, however they have become a profit orientated business, being run for the shareholders, and no longer value the highly skilled UK workforces, instead choosing to invest in cheaper economies where the skill quality of the workforce is not as high. Which is a shame

Productive and fun workplace but Dunton Management not focusing on Employee progress

Ford UK management need more focus on employee development. Not enough time is spent on getting the best out of employees by LL6 managers. As EchoBoost technology has passed from UK to US, more acknowledgement needs to be given to UK.
