Pros

Years of automotive tech knowledge crammed into a single company, you can learn a lot from many types of leadership styles. Lots of travel opportunities, at least before the recession hit the hardest.

Cons

Benefits continue to be cut as an effort to cut expenses. Low job security.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on developing new technologies, Delphi is always trying to catch on, instead of leading the automotive supplier business.

    I worked at Delphi

    Pros

    Was a good company --but it now has gone into the death spiral. Formerly had great resources and people, with progressive policies for cooperation between divisions, organizations, and cross-regional development. Part of the problem was a lack of focus to support M&A activity when appropriate, and too much attention to fixing instead of shedding non-performers.

    Cons

    Was not able to shed under-performing businesses. Focused on top-line growth at the expense of long-term survivability. Compensation was not tailored to individual performance, but was too broad -- little incentives for success or initiative. Culture rewarded lack of controversy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cuts need to be sharp and quick.

    I have been working at Delphi

    Pros

    Delphi used to be a company with strong engineering and technology

    Cons

    Delphi is one of the poorest executing companies in the automotive industry. All big companies have bureaucratic wastes and excesses, but Delphi goes to the extremes. The sacred cow reigns in Delphi even if in the face of bankrupcy and insolvency the sacred cows still stand. For employees in business functions above mid level reporting lines and ownership are very misconstrued because of its complex matrix structure (regions, functions, product lines, customers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire them, we have been in bankrupcy for 3 years and other than stripping benefits and firing a lot of people nothing has changed. Yes our retirees take up huge amounts of our capital assets, but Delphi's ultimate problem is 3rd rate products (because no money has been invested in them in 5-6 years) built in wasteful plants (delphi only knows how to do a business if it is 500K units or more a year, for any volume lower than that, they don't have equipment or processes to compete) The compnay is very short sited in everything it does (how they develop products, choose suppliers, calculate costs, estimate return on investment...)
