    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 Management

    splash out a little to keep employees feeling valued.

  2. Technically interesting, but under resourced.

    Pros

    Technical detail to great depth and work is promoted in a structured manner. Generally good knowledgeable and enthusiastic teams. Access to training is good when there's time and a suitable budget.

    Cons

    Very demanding with poor work-life balance. Work is usually poorly defined and wanted at short notice. Staff expected to work all hours to meet unreasonable targets. Lack of trust of management in guys doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive for technical excellence and develop the name 'Delphi' as a recognised brand. Acknowledge staff and recognise their efforts. Improve and coordinate planning and facilities. Improve staff moral by developing social interaction between departments. Adopt, communicate and maintain a clear business direction.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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