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

Pros

A safe place to work and very clean. Build good products

Cons

Very low merit increase for US salary as compared to sites outside the US. Job security is on the minds of many salary employees that are reaching retirement age. Many near 55 years old have been let go. The management is very self centered, vain and operate like a closed door boys club. Fear of job loss is used to delay and avoid giving good merit raises to the salary workforce while upper management collects huge bonuses. Previous President of Company caught traveling to facilities cutting jobs and telling employees to tighten belts while his purchase activity of a huge home made the Indianapolis news headlines using employee blood money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get off their high horses and care about the lives of their employees

    Challenging, high stress, heavily bureaucratic and limited opportunity for advancement to management

    Pros

    Many opportunities to travel, work with international teams, move within the company to new jobs / challenges. Pay is decent, especially to new hires, but don't expect an annual raise. If you get one every 18 months and it is 3%, you are doing well. People are smart, friendly (most of the time) . Good place to get training, develop skills, but unless you are one of the 'stars', there is no benefit to staying long-term. Most of the original 'pros' to working for this company were stripped away during bankruptcy / emergence from bankruptcy (pension, health care in retirement, vacation)

    Cons

    You will only advance to middle management if you promise to sell your soul to the company (give up your personal life, be available 24/7) or: if you're related to someone / have a close friend in upper management. Positions are 'invented' for management people in favor if there isn't a good fit in current job opportunities. Trend is going back to top-heavy many-layered management. Heavy concentration of people from Kokomo / Indiana (difficult to convince people to move to Kokomo)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees that get the job done without fanfare (Don't just reward just the 'firefighters / heroes'). Find way to remove bureaucratic burdens, not add to them. Find a way to improve workplace / life balance. Hire more lower-paid 'techs / assistants to do the less technical work to free up the engineers to do the technical work.
