    I have been working at Delphi full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Initial starting pay is at market rate. Old employees linger (leave via attrition and come back as a bundle/contact employee), so it's good that old knowledge is kept, but there is an unequal disparity within age demographics which eventually will make the company unsustainable.

    Cons

    Lack of talent management unless related to a high level staff. Too many layers/matrices to process anything. Benefits continue to dwindle, better off going to Health care market place. Organization is very top heavy as the actual workers have downsized, the portfolio of Vice Presidents has increased dramatically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep filling your pockets, but don't forget to compensate and care about all the employees that contribute to the company's success.

    Pros

    Good technology company, quality is important, has good people

    Cons

    Is becoming overly financially focused and not as much focused on developing people. Because of this it is getting harder to satisfy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less every man for himself and more team execution focused

    I have been working at Delphi as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Delphi 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Had a recent reorg, no comment.

    I have been working at Delphi as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    The people at Delphi are wonderful to work with, and there are always some very exciting innovations taking place. Delphi provides benefits to all its full-time employees and provides training to keep employees up-to-date on safety and new technology. Many employees have families and healthy work-life balances. Also, it is a global company, so there are plenty of opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    As a younger member of the professional community, I would like to see a more aesthetically pleasing work environment. The company provides suitable work equipment, but the cubicle walls look a bit outdated; it's basically just your average office, so a nice change to stand out would be nice.

    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.

    I have been working at Delphi full-time

    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 !!
