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

    Pros

    Company has huge potential with a huge diverse portfolio. It's global, therefore engineering can work in one time zone, and immediate scaling or production could occur continuously...but the system is flawed as communication is there lacking within all divisions. (Lots of reworks)
    Initially many decades ago, it was a great organization under GM, with a nice sweet compensation package. That all ended in 1999, when Delphi spun off...a small leak in a lovely ship, then a few hits into boulders (chapter11, emergence form, to be owned by those Delphi was in debt to).
    Heard recently that the organization is really working hard to get gen Ys in, enough to have initial pay will be at or more than market. (Historically, salary then is stagnant, and benefits are dwindling.)

    Cons

    Like most large companies, it's purely financially driven with short term realizations, and no commitment to in house capital improvement projects (blgs. were once state of the art, in its times like 1960s or 80s and has barely shown much change/technological improvements) or it's dedicated staffs of seniority of 15+ years. Matter of fact there is a large gap in age demographics due to the collapse of the pension programs; older staff linger much longer hanging on to status quo ( oh just awaiting the moment of when their "time" will come), and the younger generation either have jumped ship, or just novices trying to use Delphi as a stepping stone to bounce off of.

    There also is barely a HR organization, and with many managers left into their current position due to others that left via attrition(or outright laid off), there is in very rare cases career development (none locally, but maybe there is hope within other Delphi organizations). No support for training.

    Poor work-life balance without being penalized.

    Delphi is continually under reorganization mode, and recently has seen a large exponential growth in V.P.s , making it a very top heavy organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Impossible to change their perspectives...they are equally like robots, "do" as dictated; oh unless they overpay a consultant to tell them exactly what their staff has been telling all along.

    Pros

    The people are great. The products are technically challenging. The potential for world class products (like in the past) is still present.

    Cons

    The management and work level is really bad. There is a month to month mentality with respect to budgets and this negatively impacts staffing, material purchases, equipment purchases, etc. If the revenue/income is bad for this month, cut some heads, delay some material purchases. How this impacts the next month, quarter, or development program is not considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff and spend money based on multi-year development cycles of products. If we expect to make money in 2017 for products developed in 2015, spend it in 2015. Do not wait until 2017 or it will be too late.

    I worked at Delphi full-time (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.
