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

    Pros

    The company provided significant opportunities to grow and diversify job positions when the auto economy was strong.

    Cons

    As the overall economy weakened and specifically the automotive market fell off - There were significant downsizing and reductions in workforce - requiring the remaining team members to pick up those responsibilities in addition to their previous assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a vision, become a part of the team, and lead them to where the company needs to go. Many hands make light 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

    There was an ideal time for this company to move forward. Some great people to work with and great products. Restructuring brought core business into focus.

    Cons

    Company has lost momentum because management team is too focused on margins and personal benefits. Employees are the greatest asset, but the average employee is overlooked and overworked and underpaid. There are too many folks in top management and too many layers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of looking at your peers, look at those folks who work for you. Morale is low and folks are getting fed up.

    Pros

    High caliber talent employed - great relationships

    Cons

    Downsizing musical chairs in progress at some sites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest about the future plans - we're grown-ups, we can take it. Weasel words don't build trust, a commodity you will need to succeed.

    Pros

    It is a good place to start and learn.

    Cons

    The pay is low and the work grows as your knowledge. Be ready to put in 60hr weeks and get paid for 40 hrs. Kokomo is a small town, unless you are in Detroit area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no path or incentive to go into management. Some of the leaders I interacted with were dishonest (not truthful). As I have moved around to other companies I have seen a few in leadership positions. After interfacing for a while I see things don't change. Is it worth it to me to de dishonest to get ahead? Obviously not, I am still and individual contributor but have been in mid management positions when I got my Masters.

    Pros

    Delphi allows employees to work flex time. Of course that also requires that you work from home at all hours of the day. Good co-workers

    Cons

    Management only interested in enriching themselves. Outsourcing. Forced do to much more with less people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the people instead of your wallets. The company is not committed to its employees ove r the long term. How can you expect us to be dedicated?

    Pros

    Good people, interesting work, company that has potential.

    Cons

    Poor managment, reactionary rather than strategic, poor work life balance, low or no pay increases and incentive compensation if you are not an executive, reduced benefits following bankruptcy e.g.reduced vacation, fewer folidays,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about your own compensation package (which in many cases is excessive) and start paying attention to the business, to the employees and to the tasks at hand or this company will rapidly decline.
