    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.

    Pros

    Respectable pay and benefits. Can be interesting work.

    Cons

    Delphi is no longer customer focused. Instead, its sole focus seems to be on Wall Street with lots of smoke and mirrors so the purse strings are very tight. Very concerned about not having anything really new in the pipeline. The organization has lost a lot of brilliant people over the past few years who no longer wanted to be part of a sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the customer and new technologies - not just Wall Street.
