    Great technical people, adequate tech leadership, marginal strategic vision.

    I worked at Delphi as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The engineers are by and large bright and hardworking. I worked in Powertrain Software and the engineers understand both real time embedded programming, and automotive engine and transmission operation in detail. If you are a motor head and a programmer you might really enjoy this job. A word of warning... testing automotive software is more of a job than writing it.

    Cons

    Management skills varied from super competent to somewhat competent. It's unclear what the requirements are to be a manager, but it was not always being a good engineer. A couple guys I thought must have been frat guys, they waved their hands and said buzzwords, but when you tried to explain a technical issue their eyes glazed over. Regardless, there are some really sharp managers there.

    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

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like assets, not dirt.
