🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 How's that working out for him?
I keep hearing mgmt's same old excuses that we are going through a difficult and challenging period. Yes, that is true, but the fact that times are hard does not mean that they are not incompetent. Inflation, growing competition can only be excuses... — read more
We all know the leadership only sees employees as numbers and couldn't care less whether we're happy and satisfied or not. Now imagine for a moment where we would be if all employees at Ford felt like they mattered to the company. If all of us felt... — read more
So now that rates are updated, what was your impact? Do you plan on retiring? My impact: ~200k . Plan: I originally thought I would stay put but I never thought that they could just convert our pension next year, so now I am leaning toward... — read more
Phoebe should be embarrassed to print this drivel as “news.” Nobody at Ford thinks Farley is as great as she does, probably not even Bill at this point. Norway is the future. and Farley figured the country might reveal a secret to Tesla's future... — read more
At least for now?
GM salary will be returning to work 3x days per week. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/general-motors/2022/09/23/gm-tells-white-collar-workers-to-return-to-the-office-3-days-a-week/69515288007/ Will Ford Follow suit?
This is a rather hypothetical question, but I hear more and more opinions that Ford will most likely be sold or merged in the end. Do you think this is the only salvation for the company? No one knows what will happen in the future, but to me it... — read more
Farley took a bow when Ford’s market cap reached $100 billion, now that it’s declined to less than half of that in six months, does he take credit for that, as well? Maybe the Free Ford Press will do a front page headline article on that... — read more
Curious what job those who post here have / or had? I want to understand the bitterness and anger that's regularly on display and where it's coming from. I ask this because the anonymity of the forum make every post seem like trolling or a... — read more
Are you kidding me. Stock is down another 5% and we can't ship vehicles because we are out of logos. LOL. What a shxx show!
Building our salvation factory in TN. Spending billions with no volume (or subscriptions) to support. Train station v 2.0. Never confuse action with results. Farley will get a great severance package long before we lose our jobs or work for... — read more
I came across this description of the train station ion from a year ago, yet it is still an empty shell, nowhere near ready for occupancy. This shows you cannot believe ANYTHING Ford says without looking for the marketing spin, especially on the... — read more
People want a package. Give us a package.
I was let go and did not meet retirement eligibility. Yet, the company sends me “congratulations on my retirement” postcard and emails telling me to check on my retirement benefits.
I don't know how some departments here will survive any more layoffs or retirements..
When poor leadership doesn't get results, they have to shuffle management to provide scapegoats to the stockholders. Activities like this never provide results (as Ford should have learned by now). Look for an outsider to fill the Purchasing roll... — read more
Doug Field is getting closer to being top dog. All the while yesterday's stars are (cough cough) retiring. The house is getting cleaned and replaced with non-automotive outsiders.
How many will retire to avoid losing 22% of their lump sum? 500? 2000? 5000?
Why would you stay at this lousy company? I quit in 2007 and never looked back. I left because there wasn’t any money to go around. And when there was a scrap from the table, it went to the UAW. That’s right, I have an engineering degree from a... — read more
First, my heart goes out to those who were SIRPed and are devastated, hear-broken, struggling to cope, blindsided, etc. You will get through this and I wish you the best of luck. However, I feel like I won the lottery. I am a long time pensioner... — read more
Is this the road to a bankruptcy? Frankly I am not a finance girl but it looks like thinjgs are so massively wrong.
Who in their right mind would buy a new vehicle right now unless you could pay for it in full before leaving the dealership. Who would even consider financing a vehicle right now when we're in the beginning stages of a collapse and most people... — read more
The current contract expires next year. I'm guessing the UAW will be going after a hefty COLA raise, and the big three, especially Ford, are likely to balk. I'm guessing a showdown of epic proportions, like we haven't seen in decades, will ensue... — read more
There is still plenty of time to get SIRPd. If you are going to retire anyway why not try rocking the boat
I am very disappointed in Ford and the leadership that has destroyed the company culture. I got an offer from a competitor. I can't say that I'm not happy about it, because it will be a big step for my career. This company owns me nothing and I own... — read more
This is going to hurt, shares tanked 10% today. When will Bill Ford and the BOD admit Farley is in over his head and cannot right this ship?
The auto industry would not be having to resize if we hadn't outsourced all the parts and jobs. What we should all be fighting and voting for is nationalism and insourcing all manufacturing. The USD cannot maintain valu with a service economy this... — read more
I feel bad for employees - mostly those who joined more recently - who choose to extend their hours to "stay competitive." They have no idea that it is completely unnecessary. No amount of extra work will ensure their place at Ford once cuts start... — read more
For those cut, my understanding is the employee got compensated for unused accrued vacation. But what about those retiring near end of November, does employee get paid for unused vacation?
If one retires by November 30, does that employee get a pro-rated bonus check (the math equals 11/12) next March mailed to their home or direct deposited?
Ford said today it expects to have 40,000 to 45,000 SUVs & trucks in inventory lacking certain parts at the end of Q3, pushing sales of the vehicles to the Q4. The company now expects it third-quarter adjusted EBIT to be in between $1.4B-$1.7B.
