    I have been working at Delphi full-time (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.

    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 (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great to have paid work for a year.
    Ten other students made it easy to organise house sharing.

    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 (more than an 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.

    Good place to get experience

    Former Employee - Software Verification Engineer in West Lafayette, IN (US)
    Former Employee - Software Verification Engineer in West Lafayette, IN (US)

    I worked at Delphi as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    My university was near a Delphi engineering center, so they put a lab in our research park to allow for electrical or computer engineering students to gain experience. I worked in that lab under a more senior engineer on a project. I gained a lot of experience with how projects flow in the automotive world. It also functioned as a sort of internship in the summer, which took a lot of stress off, as I was able to just stay in the same apartment and not have to worry about moving around the country for internships. The pay was also pretty good for a part time job, though a little lower than an internship opportunity would have been.

    Cons

    The only issue I can think of is that because the lab I worked in was separate from the lab that the full time employees worked in, there could be a bit of a disconnect. But other than that everything was great.

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

    Pros

    Interesting technology, recent bonuses have been generous, recent domestic hiring, stock done well, Engineers that stuck it out through the worst times are some of the best in the industry

    Cons

    Chapter 11 left some scars, management focus on cash flow have paid off in bonuses, stock, and investor confidence, but creates challenges in engineering. Detroit presents challenge to find mature talent and attract young potential talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to protect investment in employees and growth from the need to satisfy investors.
