I worked at Delphi full-time (More than 3 years)Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDoesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
Being a US MNC, the compensation was (to me) pretty good. So were the benefits. Dental claims, medical claims, annual leave was 18 days I believe. Good exposure to training. Normally working hours are pretty ok, knock off at 6.30pm most days if you are efficient. Time off for breakfast and tea. Opportunities to travel overseas when necessary, with overseas allowances. During my time they gave a sign on allowance to buy new clothes etc. which was cool. I had a good Manager.
Lots of politicking. More people spending time crafting emails for self-benefit than actually doing productive work. The work was very boring, they give the uninteresting, boring jobs to us in Singapore. E.g. developing hardware IO layers. The interesting/fun stuff was all done in the US. No total ownership of project because you cannot touch or learn any of the algorithmic stuff, which makes work really very boring and meaningless. Many unproductive employees who gave me the feeling they don't know what they're doing, in the Company, even at Management levels, there were "dead beats". Putting the wrong people in leadership positions. Lots of early morning/late night conference calls with overseas colleagues which was very tiring. Even had to attend a training conference call at 1am in the morning at the office, and expected to report to work at 8.30am the next day, no time off. Financial outlook for the Company is doom and gloom, even the top Management in Singapore communicates this to us all the time. Shrinking profit margins from customers demanding lower prices, rising costs of components from suppliers, very hard to turn a profit, which was demoralising.
Advice to Management
Get rid of the dead beats / politicians, especially at the management levels, as they are destroying the Company from within. Hire technically competent people, who are more interested to do the job then to spend time playing politics. Give entire ownership of a product to a centre instead of making the Singapore site develop only boring stuff.
