    I have been working at Delphi full-time

    Pros

    Global entity with clear direction and strong presence in the market, in a good position following emergence from Chapter 11.

    Cons

    Very devolved structure, difficult to get things done as so many decision makers. High duplication of support functions, too many middle managers. Very data heavy and not enough focus. Investment in systems has been lacking over multiple years meaning very manual processes.

    Former Employee - Engineering Development  in  Kokomo, IN (US)
    Former Employee - Engineering Development in Kokomo, IN (US)

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

    Pros

    26 years of employment before I had enough and jumped. Pay and benefits were decent. In it's day was an exciting place to work and grow your knowledge. Place you were proud to say you worked. I worked hard to get hired by Delco, worked hard throughout my career as a dedicated employee. NEVER expected to leave Delphi... Didn't realize how bad I despised what Delphi had become.

    Cons

    High level management no longer valued people or experience of their senior engineers. Continual rounds of cuts just to make budget so exec's got their bonuses. People overloaded and worked 7 days a week on projects without pay over 40 hours because project managers agree to development schedules that are not achievable because they don't have a clue what work is involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put management back in the hands of people that have a clue of engineering and design cycles. Realize it's the people that ultimately make the money. They deserve to be treated as human- not robots that have no life outside of work.

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

    Pros

    international corporation with much people talent, great benefits, good pay, i worked with a nice group of people, great supervisor

    Cons

    no challenge, upper management changed often and only cared for short term goals, like "show me the money NOW", no long-term vision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to look at the long term benefits for the company rather that the short-sighted, fast-fill-pockets for yourselves.
