    I have been working at Delphi full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good technical work, good opportunities. excellent test/analysis facilities.

    Cons

    little experience brought in from outside, lots of graduates make up the work force and technical experience limited to in house training. little in the way of employees benefits, and could do with spending more on social/welfare areas to keep the workforce happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    splash out a little to keep employees feeling valued.

    I have been working at Delphi full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Informal working environment, quite relaxed. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of HR support. Mobility within the group limited (HR managed locally)
    Everything feel like the individual employee come second (or third, or even more) in order of priority
    Feel like the company is managed week by week, no long term vision/investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people, or you are going to loose them...

    I worked at Delphi full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great to have paid work for a year.
    Ten other students made it easy to organise house sharing.
    I learned to programme.
    I learned a lot about general internal combustion engine knowledge from the other employees there.
    Good to have industrial experience so early on in my career.

    Cons

    Part of my job involved running a test rig which was very boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more variety in the YINI scheme would have been appreciated.

    Pros

    High number of graduates so very good work environment. Lots of opportunity for experience across different engineering functions.

    Cons

    Some old school management style.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shakeup the old school management style. Give employees more empowerment and flexibility to their working hours. This can only contribute to increased satisfaction with work.

    I worked at Delphi as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    A wide variety of things to do. Excellent CV booster. They realise you're still a student so let you learn while working.

    Cons

    Lots of Excel. Sometimes there can be a lot of downtime where you have nothing to do. Not everything you do will be applicable to your degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow students slightly more responsibility. Get a new ticket system. Disallow attachements over a megabyte onto the worldwide mailing list.

    I worked at Delphi full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Delphi has very good work-life balance. Family always comes first and getting time off for emergencies or to take care of loved ones is no problem. Rarely did I work over 40 hours per week. Other employees were friendly. Very structured and highly organized work environment.

    Cons

    Delphi went through a brutal restructuring that left morale extremely low. When revenue was off, Temporary Layoff was required. There was little room for advancement. Constantly tight budgets meant raises were few and far between, and were very small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risks to turn around sales and share the wealth with employees to improve morale. Reduce bureaucracy and encourage more creativity. Invest more in marketing to strengthen the brand and improve sales.
