    Need to take a strong look at your upper & middle management for their real commitment to the organizational long term viability.

    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 The company provides suitable work equipment, but the cubicle walls look a bit outdated; it's basically just your average office, so a nice change to stand out would be nice.

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

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard for descendent pay in Western New York, Delphi was is good partner. Nice work/life balance. Having the Union there kept management in line and made sure we were paid fairly and got the rights we deserved.

    Cons

    Company was pretty unstable during the chapter 11. Management seemed distant since it became part of GM again. Had to go toe to toe with managers at times. Union guys were made to feel like we were the enemy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat Union workers better.

    Former Employee - SAP Business Process  in  Troy, MI
    Former Employee - SAP Business Process in Troy, MI

    I worked at Delphi as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Challenging supply chain with true international reach internal plants, distribution centers, subcontract and parts suppliers. Deep and broad Bills of Materials. If you enjoy analytical challenges this is a great environment.

    Cons

    While I was there chapter 11 and a declining US automotive industry put stress on people and the overall organization. It is a tribute to the people there that they responded well to save their own and their neighbors jobs. The company has been restructured and has a positive future ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember all organizations are just groups of people until they share the vision and have the tools and knowledge to execute it... then they are a team. I think Delphi management actually fills this role well.

    Company places an emphasis on employee's Quality of family Life. Low Turnover. Opportunity for Growth within the company.

    Generation gap within the organization, with an emphasis on aged former GM Employees. Company continues to trim strong talent, in order to hit short term financial goals.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of expertise

    Cons

    It acts like a large company, so things are slow at times. Bankruptcy made decision making questionable. Alot of brain drain in 2008 left many holes in the organization.
