    I worked at Delphi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard for descendent pay in Western New York, Delphi was is good partner. Nice work/life balance. Having the Union there kept management in line and made sure we were paid fairly and got the rights we deserved.

    Cons

    Company was pretty unstable during the chapter 11. Management seemed distant since it became part of GM again. Had to go toe to toe with managers at times. Union guys were made to feel like we were the enemy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat Union workers better.

    I worked at Delphi as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging supply chain with true international reach internal plants, distribution centers, subcontract and parts suppliers. Deep and broad Bills of Materials. If you enjoy analytical challenges this is a great environment.

    Cons

    While I was there chapter 11 and a declining US automotive industry put stress on people and the overall organization. It is a tribute to the people there that they responded well to save their own and their neighbors jobs. The company has been restructured and has a positive future ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember all organizations are just groups of people until they share the vision and have the tools and knowledge to execute it... then they are a team. I think Delphi management actually fills this role well.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of expertise

    Cons

    It acts like a large company, so things are slow at times. Bankruptcy made decision making questionable. Alot of brain drain in 2008 left many holes in the organization.

    Pros

    Decent benefit package, matched time with company, Christmas break, and other holidays off. Great people to work with and technically competent.

    Cons

    Was a great place to work @ one time but management has continued to chase the bottom line. People have left and are not being replaced. The result is vey low morale and a sweat shop type environment. The stress is over whelming and family life does not exist.

    Pros

    Longevity can happen. 401K match is descent.

    Cons

    Management Turn-over pushing experienced people out of the way with newer faster models that make a lot of noise, move very fast, make people work faster and then find out they couldn't meet expectations, then blame somebody else Work is buzier. A lot of wheel spinning is the true result. Skipping steps creates potholes. Payscale does not keep up with inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your key people before it's too late!
    Figure out who they are and treat them like gold !!

    Pros

    World class training, nice co workers, global presence, mature systems.

    Cons

    Compensation is biased, capped professional growth, moving up in the organization is more a function of whom you know than your competence, learning systems and management is becoming extensively segmented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People ware, recognize seniority and allow them to take on new challenges that can revamp careers.
