How often does it happen that you have to correct someone else's mistakes? Do you have such experiences? I'm tired of fixing errors and redoing someone else's work. It is not clear to me how a company can allow one to be so irresponsible towards their work and overload someone else with additional, unnecessary work.

We all practice the art of not seeing problems and hope we are not on call when SHTF.
Lately we have all hidden documentation on how to fix problems as if your name is on said documentation then you are of course to blame for creating the problem.
What a wonderful work environment we have.
You really have no choice in the matter once it's found. You are forced and management gives you the "we aren't here to blame...we are a team...remember One Ford" BS. That's the only time they roll that garbage phrase out. Then it's your face everyone sees and you have to go out of your way to make sure you don't get blamed. THEN if you name the person who left the mess, you get "gee that is so strange, everyone says they are so great"- and try to infer you aren't telling the truth. Or, "gee, you really need to be more of a team player". That is how toxic Ford is. That is why decent people just keep their mouths shut when they see or hear of the problem. Let it go until it blows up and then whoever is around at the time has to fix it as it's a losing proposition for the regular person.
You guys are contributing to mediocrity by fixing other people mistakes. Ford is now the crown of mediocrity at least when it comes to comes to writing stable software
The most sickening thing is that the majority of the flaming id--ts are those on all the special leadership programs. The leave a swath of destruction in their path while local management makes others clean up the mess left behind. Nothing is ever said because the person is "special". Wash, rinse, repeat. The Ford way and why we continue to build cr-p and cab never get our act together. The rest of us are just desperately trying to live to play another day to work off the last few years to retirement. We were beat into the ground long ago and know there us nothing we can do but stay alive for the rest of our countdowns. Personally I am doing all I can to be ready to pull the trigger the moment I am eligible. There will be no stay over 30yrs for me. If Ford offered me an up and out, I be all over that. Then I will leave for a job at a more decent company that cares about quality and treats ALL employees fairly. Not a specific segment.
My job is nothing but fixing sc--w ups and there is no shortage of them!
That happens all the time. If it wasn't for the benefits that place would be a ghost town.
