    Pros

    Hardworking and talented people in company.

    Cons

    Cross Competencies conflict due to no leadership from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management consists of too many old people that prefer not to work and make mistakes, rather sit do nothing waiting for retirement age to come.

    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.

    I worked at Delphi full-time (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.

    Pros

    Respectable pay and benefits. Can be interesting work.

    Cons

    Delphi is no longer customer focused. Instead, its sole focus seems to be on Wall Street with lots of smoke and mirrors so the purse strings are very tight. Very concerned about not having anything really new in the pipeline. The organization has lost a lot of brilliant people over the past few years who no longer wanted to be part of a sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the customer and new technologies - not just Wall Street.

    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.
