    Stressful place to work at with low pay and no career advancement

    Electronic Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsHardworking and talented people in company.

    ConsCross Competencies conflict due to no leadership from management.

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagement consists of too many old people that prefer not to work and make mistakes, rather sit do nothing waiting for retirement age to come.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Once a Powerhouse- Now Spiraling Down

    Engineering Development (Former Employee)
    Kokomo, IN

    Pros26 years of employment before I had enough and jumped. Pay and benefits were decent. In it's day was an exciting place to work and grow your knowledge. Place you were proud to say you worked. I worked hard to get hired by Delco, worked hard throughout my career as a dedicated employee. NEVER expected to leave Delphi... Didn't realize how bad I despised what Delphi had become.

    ConsHigh level management no longer valued people or experience of their senior engineers. Continual rounds of cuts just to make budget so exec's got their bonuses. People overloaded and worked 7 days a week on projects without pay over 40 hours because project managers agree to development schedules that are not achievable because they don't have a clue what work is involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut management back in the hands of people that have a clue of engineering and design cycles. Realize it's the people that ultimately make the money. They deserve to be treated as human- not robots that have no life outside of work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avoid this company, especially the Kokomo division.

    Electrical Engineer (Former Employee)
    Kokomo, IN

    ProsLots of interesting projects to work on.

    ConsTreated like a number. When quarterly results aren't good, management cuts expenses by getting together to decide who they can fire next. Older workers and those that are on sick or pregnancy leave are especially targeted. Management hides this by getting the workers to sign legal releases to prevent them from suing before they will give them any severance money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your older workers humanely. They have invested much of their lives to help out your company, and now that they are near retirement, you are dumping them on the job market at an age when they will have a difficult time finding another job. You expect loyalty from your employees yet you are not being loyal to them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Severe "Brain Drain" Has Crippled Former Technology Powerhouse

    Senior Electrical Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Kokomo, IN

    ProsSome of the most brilliant engineers I've ever worked with until the company was taken over by the hedge fund owners. A technology leader that has fallen due to the exodus of the many of the most talented.

    ConsConstant layoffs, forced retirements, continual salary and benefit cuts, terminated pension plan employees in their 40's and 50's with huge losses to make up in the short time remaining before retirement. Horrible Morale due to employees being viewed as disposable liabilities. Systematically bleeding US locations to death while moving the work offshore.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange your attitude toward your workforce. Morale will not improve until they see that you have a plan to grow the company and value the contributions of a talented workforce.

    Systemically unethical.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLoving home for people of mediocre education with poor grammar.

    ConsSystemically unethical. Very top-down, poor management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHaving already been bankrupt, time to clean up your integrity issues with management and handling of subordinates. Inadequate oversight down the chain. Instead of part of the solution HR is also part of the problem.

    better don't join in delphi india, Join if u r not ambitious..

    Advanced Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsBetter Work life balance.. mostly bcz not much work

    ConsNothing attractive not good atmosphere, good technologies are there but very very below average employee's dont even know basics so learning curve will be almost zero. counter parts wont trust you if you do awesome work also (from their experience). max you can learn some junk tools.
    if i compare from my past experiences, nothing good.. managers earning/enjoying like anything.. HR dept is very very worse, no clear vision, no technology experts etc.

    Advice to Senior Managementif no better work force nothing you can do ultimately..

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Total disregard for career management, treats people like disposable assets.

    Customs & Trade Compliance Process Leader EMEA (Former Employee)
    Bascharage (Luxembourg)

    ProsInternational experience, nice team, great expertise and learning opportunity. Six-sigma potential. Large supply chain leads to interesting case-handling.

    ConsHR management is shoddy at best. Annual evaluations are designed to fit company goals (performance prize one month, bad evaluation the next)
    Team leaders are there for management, not for their teams and you touself, as a teamleader, are expected to butcher your team as you get butchered. Dog eat dog world. Uninterested top level leadershhip..

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart listening and do not keep silent or fail to respond. Honor people who leave as contributors who move on. Do not use FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) as a way to manage your business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Greedy bunch

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Kokomo, IN

    ProsA funded paycheck. If you are bored, you will spend all your waking moments doing what management thinks is important.

    ConsEmployees are simply a means for the owners and executives to line their pockets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like assets, not dirt.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It will soon be the end

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood relationships with my colleagues

    ConsDelphi directors always want to make more and more and more monney for themselves and the shareholders. No consideration for the human beeings who are really wokring.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a stable place to work, and employees are not respected!

    Engineer - Power Electronics (Former Employee)
    Kokomo, IN

    ProsGood and highly experienced engineers, good pay.

    ConsPower electronics projects are neat but need much better support from advanced engineering. Advanced engineering managers have no vision of what works and what doesn't and just act nice to keep their jobs. Production is always under pressure and the amount of work per engineer is unreasonable. Management recently laid off many engineers and Kokomo's workforce is shrinking but media is not talking about it! HR is not professional when dealing with employee issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement up from the CEO down to group managers should be changed. This change should include advanced engineering and HR of power electronics. The company needs fresh vision to succeed, and more respect to employees who are always worried about losing their jobs.

    The company has lots of potential but projects are always driven in the wrong direction.
