Face the facts. Jim Farley is an incompetent leader. What shocks me is that Bill Ford and the board of directors can’t see Jim’s incompetence. That says a lot about them. It's not that people can't see his incompetence, it's that nobody wants... — read more
Farley, are you listening? “Meta Platforms Inc. is asking many of its managers and directors to transition to individual contributor jobs or leave the company as it tries to become more efficient, according to people familiar with the matter.” — read more
Anyone else notice that there's very few jobs listed on Jobs Online? Usually there's a fair bit, but only three today for Michigan.

I think that's probably a low estimate. Eliminate 50% of the LL6's for starters. You know the ones that never contribute anything but rely on the supplier to do all their work and presenting. The ones that do nothing more than pass the buck. The... — read more
Even with the latest announcement of coming layoffs, I'm betting you that we'll continue to hire left and right. It would be logical to have a hiring freeze before layoffs but not when it comes to Ford. This is where logic goes to die. I can't... — read more
Can we venture a guess at how many will be affected this time?
Listening to JF talk to investors it was clear he is NOT the right guy for the job, and neither are any of the Silicon Valley JF hires, including DF who continually tries to paint himself as the next CEO. The guy is still talking like AV for the... — read more
My burning question to Bill. I don’t think there is one business expert who has given JF a compliment. The Townhall bathroom incident left Bill vulnerable, which in my eyes the CEO failed. Unpack the bu-t kissing, what are they seeing in him? He is... — read more
So I been following Ford's constant layoffs. My friend (a supervisor at ford) told me that the have 32K and cutting 3K in August. Also they cut few thousand people through "early retirement" age based layoffs in Dec 2022. I am assuming you are... — read more
Sorry guys just talked to my F 150 guy and it was confirmed. Hope the best to all of you at Ford.

BOHICA, from the Detroit News: Ford Motor Co.’s engineering ranks may bear the brunt of additional job cuts the automaker has alluded to in the wake of disappointing earnings, judging from Chief Executive Officer Jim Farley’s latest interview. “It... — read more
Just thinking out loud. As the rumor of more layoffs before the end of Q1 reaches a crescendo, should the company consider not giving out bonuses in order to limit the scope of the layoffs? Seems kind of duplicitous to give out bonuses while laying... — read more
The goal seems to be getting input from workers about the move from ICE to EV, the impact on your career, etc.
Automotive News states that its time for Ford (and GM) to pinch pennies to improve financial performance. As we all know, this is Ford's dog whistle to get "on demand" price reductions from the supply base. Farley says the Ford team is... — read more
Are they closing the fmcc building next to WHQ or reopening the building for the overflow of this RTO garbage. Not sure anyone is currently in there.
If Ford is going to partner with Red Bull, all they need to do is giving out money. If Ford is going to offer technology, it might do more harm than good. Red Bull might need to compete with Ferrari engined Haas, not Ferrari... But why?!
One of the biggest issues bringing down Ford are CAD managers and "people leaders" that have no knowledge of CAD. How can you lead a group and know absolutely nothing about CAD? One CAD supervisor has 4 people under him, the next one has 14 people... — read more
Just a question…. Some sections due to retirements, attrition and cuts, are left with only one person of expertise/skill set in an area. This is how the company wants it, apparently, especially for ICE. So if you’re the only person left in your... — read more

Let’s build more unprofitable EV’s and Europe will save Ford. Really? Ford Authority: Over the past couple of years, Ford CEO Jim Farley has clearly outlined the automaker’s future direction, and it’s one that will include a rather sharp shift... — read more
Also wondering about this 91-148% variance. Do they just do flat 100% for AICP and Retirees giving the extra to high performers and current employees? BOHICA
Wow. Ford should ask for a refund for the sh#t advice Hackett purchased and implemented. That together with the money they lost from the age discrimination case...Ford is a train wreck of its own making. I guess hiring and fast promoting kids and... — read more
Started early in the year when apparently, they switched to quarterly check-ins. I got "on-target" for all. With the understanding that there was an "above-target" level as well as "below target". The rating system seemed kinda arbitrary but I just... — read more
First day hiring spree. Send us your tired huddles masses of nerds.
We do not collaborate and when we go in to WHQ we cannot find a seat so our team is spread out everywhere. Half my team is out of state so I see no sense in commuting all that way for nothing. How do we make them see a happy employee is more... — read more
Who thought it was a good idea to give different AICP amounts? And then for them to be so drastically different is insane! On our Ford Pro AICP call today, we were told they didn't plus up our bonuses because Ford Blue didn't even deserve the... — read more

He will spin the Earth backwards to a time when Ford had the potential to be profitable by traveling in his race car at "an angular velocity 46.296 radians per second," or approximately 660,000,000 miles per hour, which is nearly the speed of light. — read more
His cheerleader on CNBC says he give one more quarter before he cuts to sell rating. Doesn’t know how they are going to come up with 2billion in cost cuts.
Ford works to extend the tax credit on Mach-E and leases to keep the money, Farley says prices will not drop and then this from Ford PR (Ford Authority). Embarrassing and sad reflection on the CEO and FoMoCo. As Ford Authority reported last month... — read more
