Current Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer in Kokomo, IN
Current Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer in Kokomo, IN

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

Pros

Great group of smart people working in small teams. Everyone is always willing to contribute and listen to advice.

Cons

Not diversified enough to ride through the ups and downs in the auto industry. Managers expect an unrealistic amount of overtime at no pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sacrifice of core competency during down turns effects the ability to execute when things turn around.

    Former Employee - Electrical Engineer in Kokomo, IN

    I worked at Delphi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Treated like a number. When quarterly results aren't good, management cuts expenses by getting together to decide who they can fire next. Older workers and those that are on sick or pregnancy leave are especially targeted. Management hides this by getting the workers to sign legal releases to prevent them from suing before they will give them any severance money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your older workers humanely. They have invested much of their lives to help out your company, and now that they are near retirement, you are dumping them on the job market at an age when they will have a difficult time finding another job. You expect loyalty from your employees yet you are not being loyal to them.

    Current Employee - Senior Electrical Design Engineer in Kokomo, IN
    Current Employee - Senior Electrical Design Engineer in Kokomo, IN

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

    Pros

    Some of the most brilliant engineers I've ever worked with until the company was taken over by the hedge fund owners. A technology leader that has fallen due to the exodus of the many of the most talented.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, forced retirements, continual salary and benefit cuts, terminated pension plan employees in their 40's and 50's with huge losses to make up in the short time remaining before retirement. Horrible Morale due to employees being viewed as disposable liabilities. Systematically bleeding US locations to death while moving the work offshore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your attitude toward your workforce. Morale will not improve until they see that you have a plan to grow the company and value the contributions of a talented workforce.
