    Summer internship at Delphi (Auburn Hills Campus)

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI (US)

    ProsDelphi assigns high priority and must-ship features to the interns. The intern program, although new, is strong and improving every year. Delphi is positioned to be successful in the future and the internship program they have reflects their desire to search for the best candidates.

    ConsManagement is lacking, although they did just finish a reorg so there will be a few years of ramp up before the company will regain it's full productivity. The work is slow in comparison to tech companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHad a recent reorg, no comment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    stressful

    Senior Product Engineer (Former Employee) Saginaw, MI (US)

    ProsChallenging projects. Interesting portfolio. Most employees are easy to work with. Room for growth. A wide variety of training available. Will pay for classes towards a degree if related to job description.

    Consoffice culture. Not a good home/work balance. Low moral. "Them and us" attitude between salary and hourly employees. Constant pressure to cut costs.

    Nice Place to work

    Technical Leader (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsFlexible Timings, Nice work-life balance, OK for personal growth and satisfaction. Good and challenging technical work if you are in right team. Again, good onsite opportunities in the right team.

    ConsIn most of the cases, pay Appraisal depends on your relation ship with manager and not your hard work. Seniors try to suppress freshers as there is less growth and people get stuck in same position for long time.

    Delphi Automotive Systems Singapore Pte Ltd (SDEC)

    Engineer - Electronics Design (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros-challenging electronics design and development working environment
    -above market average salary for junior and intermediate engineers.
    -lots of internal training/development provided.
    -lots of lesson learnt database and design guidelines and standard available for reference.
    -good annual leave entitlement and employee sign-up bonus (may not be available now).

    Cons-Delphi Singapore is already 35 years old with very stagnant workforce and too many managerial positions. As a result, it's a high cost design centre.
    -working levels resources are freezed and engineers need to juggle several projects.
    -project/top management has the upper power in influencing the company decision making based on cost instead of technical know-how and feasibility. Basically, Delphi values employees with leadership and management skills instead of in-depth technical skills. This can be seen in promoting non-competent managers (with no proven/known technical background/knowledge).
    -micro-management can been seen in certain departments.
    -professionalism and 'phor'fesionalism (apple polishing) attitudes are valued but 'phor'fesionalism takes the precedence.
    -lack of top level management decision making due to 'error-phobia' mindset. Afraid to make mistakes and wrong decision. Engineers are criticized heavily if not able to decide quickly.
    -Recent market share (powertrain, sensors, Body safety and chassis) decreased to 4% according to last year's survey (Bosch 20%, Continental 20%, Denso 11%, there are several others with 4%).
    -too customers centric to the extent some confidential information given to customers. Customers-friendly attitude is always seen as good for Delphi Singapore (which is often wrong).
    -information flow is bad as there are many parties trying to be 'Single-point contact' in gathering information and showing leadership skills but lack of in-depth technical skills to solve problem down to the root cause.
    -3 Legged 5 Whys is overrated and overemphasized whenever problems happened.

    Advice to Senior Management-reflect your management styles or wait for the worst to come.
    -technical paths for engineers need to be preserved instead of reduced as it is the core problem solving skills and resources for the future of Delphi.
    -live up to your 7 Absolutes of Excellence or we are doomed.

    Growing Company with Stagnant Employee

    Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsCompany outlook not bad, although growth is limited due to keen competition. It has great (although sometimes cumbersome) system with countless procedures and lesson learnts. Excellent work-life balance, as long as you can provide a backup.

    ConsAggresive cost cutting may means removal of redundant head count. In the rapidly-changing automotive industry, if you are not working on key products, it is easy to be redundant. Less career advancement opportunity, especially at high-cost site. Job rotation is also non-existant, due to middle management facing difficulty getting new/replacement headcount approval. Many long-serving employees (from the previous GM's time) who are very unproductive but somehow still able to safely collect their paycheck.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more career advancement and job rotation optiona. The tool is already established but in "survival mode", each department may choose not to rotate/promote employee just to keep the status quo.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A company on a downward slide into obsolescence.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Kokomo, IN (US)

    ProsDiverse employment opportunities and a broad product line.

    ConsTerrible upper management. Management practices during past several years have sapped the money out of the lower level workers and transferred it to the pockets of the Corporate staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf your job keeps you in meetings all day and you do not interface with the "cubicle workers" on a daily basis, then you are contributing nothing to the company and you should leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
