I worked at Delphi

Pros

When Delphi was a division of General Motors and even after the Spin-Off it was a great place to work. The Compensation and benefits were very good. The working relationships with fellow employees both coworkers and supervisors were great. Even working with the union members was good. It was a big happy family.

Cons

After the Spin-Off from GM upper management rerplaced the local Director with someone from out of town that was not a people person. He was put in to cut personell and ship the business out of the country. This is when the lies and deceit started. They sent the company into bankruptcy and started cutting people left and right. I was severed because I was one of the oldest andmost expensive engineers. We ended up training our own replacements, even the ones that went overseas. In retirement they cut our medical benefits and sent our pensions to the PBGC where we will loose our suppliment, in my case up to $15,000 a year or about 33%. Others much more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together and go back to PEOPLE FIRST. Bring manufacturing back to the states and let the supervisors do their jobs. It can not be cheaper to ship material in from China then it does to produce it here especially since you have gotten rid of what you called the burden of the pension program.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Competitive pay
    Interesting product lines
    Smart people

    Cons

    Brain drain
    Excessive stress
    Poor communication by Senior Mgt.
    Questionable reliability of that communication
    Relentless erosion of pay and benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step down. New blood is needed immediately to ensure the survival of Delphi. Too much GM cultural legacy... A huge part of the problem is that Delphi--like GM--is too bureaucratic and plodding to compete effectively in the market. Way too top-heavy.
