    I worked at Delphi

    Pros

    Great work environment. Salary was good and the internship program is top of the line. Great exposure to senior level management

    Cons

    The company is a little unorganized from business unit to business unit. Overall, there are not many negatives about the company

    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.

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

    Pros

    Delphi has very good work-life balance. Family always comes first and getting time off for emergencies or to take care of loved ones is no problem. Rarely did I work over 40 hours per week. Other employees were friendly. Very structured and highly organized work environment.

    Cons

    Delphi went through a brutal restructuring that left morale extremely low. When revenue was off, Temporary Layoff was required. There was little room for advancement. Constantly tight budgets meant raises were few and far between, and were very small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risks to turn around sales and share the wealth with employees to improve morale. Reduce bureaucracy and encourage more creativity. Invest more in marketing to strengthen the brand and improve sales.

    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 worked at Delphi full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Challenging projects. Interesting portfolio. Most employees are easy to work with. Room for growth. A wide variety of training available. Will pay for classes towards a degree if related to job description.

    Cons

    office culture. Not a good home/work balance. Low moral. "Them and us" attitude between salary and hourly employees. Constant pressure to cut costs.

    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.
