    I worked at Delphi as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly workplace and helpful in getting started. In addition, there is opportunity for moving up, as I saw a few shifts in management during my time with the company.

    Cons

    Delphi has been on somewhat of a downward spiral in the Rochester area, and as such attitudes sometimes lean to the negative side, with poor future outlook for the branch.

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

    Pros

    Interesting technology, recent bonuses have been generous, recent domestic hiring, stock done well, Engineers that stuck it out through the worst times are some of the best in the industry

    Cons

    Chapter 11 left some scars, management focus on cash flow have paid off in bonuses, stock, and investor confidence, but creates challenges in engineering. Detroit presents challenge to find mature talent and attract young potential talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to protect investment in employees and growth from the need to satisfy investors.

    I have been working at Delphi as an intern (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 (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 The company provides suitable work equipment, but the cubicle walls look a bit outdated; it's basically just your average office, so a nice change to stand out would be nice.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 (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.

    I worked at Delphi as a contractor (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.
