    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.

    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.

    I worked at Delphi full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Treated like a number. When quarterly results aren't good, management cuts expenses by getting together to decide who they can fire next. Older workers and those that are on sick or pregnancy leave are especially targeted. Management hides this by getting the workers to sign legal releases to prevent them from suing before they will give them any severance money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your older workers humanely. They have invested much of their lives to help out your company, and now that they are near retirement, you are dumping them on the job market at an age when they will have a difficult time finding another job. You expect loyalty from your employees yet you are not being loyal to them.
