    I worked at Delphi full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Up to the Chief Engineer level, managers were very accessible and approachable. In most cases, managers had achieved their positions through merit and hard-work.

    Cons

    Delphi Thermal has been sold by Delphi Automotive to Mahle GmbH. There are likely going to be significant changes at Delphi Thermal. Time will tell if the changes benefit the organization and business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure that Engineering Managers accept the engineering results from testing and draw the proper conclusions from those results, rather than maintaining their perspective or opinion based on their own assumptions or original hypothesis. More simply, managers should defer to the conclusions that working-level engineers have proven via testing.

    I worked at Delphi

    Pros

    Great company with many senior level professionals that are willing to train young engineers. Hours are not so strict. Mostly relaxed environment. Productive office culture.

    Cons

    Company protocol and online system and websites can get very bureaucratic, tedious, and time consuming. Long hours are many times needed and expected. Training is on-the-fly. Salaries and compensations are in general lower than most other engineering companies.

    I worked at Delphi as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are great. Projects are interesting and there is room to learn.

    Cons

    There is little loyalty to their employees. The company has dead weight they are not dealing with and tend to move people around a lot which does not create an environment that is conducive to becoming excellent in your position. They also seem to be working with the old "boys club" mentality and still adhere to archaic ways of doing business. Who you know seems to matter more than what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a better eye on your good employees and treat them well so they stay happy. Be more diligent about the dead weight employees that are just going through the motions to keep a pay check. Most of the hard workers I know that are still there are unhappy!

    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.
