    Pros

    Hardworking and talented people in company.

    Cons

    Cross Competencies conflict due to no leadership from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Engineering Development in Kokomo, IN
    Former Employee - Engineering Development in Kokomo, IN

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

    Pros

    26 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.

    Cons

    High 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 ManagementAdvice

    Put 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.

    Former Employee - Electrical Engineer in Kokomo, IN

    I worked at Delphi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Treated 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat 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.

    Current Employee - Senior Electrical Design Engineer in Kokomo, IN
    Current Employee - Senior Electrical Design Engineer in Kokomo, IN

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

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Constant 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 ManagementAdvice

    Change 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.

    I have been working at Delphi full-time

    Pros

    Loving home for people of mediocre education with poor grammar.

    Cons

    Systemically unethical. Very top-down, poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having 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.

    Pros

    Better Work life balance.. mostly bcz not much work

    Cons

    Nothing 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 ManagementAdvice

    if no better work force nothing you can do ultimately..
