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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Challenging front end technology development. Workforce still in place is very experienced and been reduced to only the high performers of 10 years ago when the corporation was larger.

    Cons

    Continual short term focus on financials and bleeding very experienced talent. Has great challenges in today's marketplace to win new business two grow. Due to continual downsizing, potential for career growth is stagnant or reversed at best.

    Pros

    Salary was great and people were wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Delphi's human assets were once regarded by management as the biggest competitive advantage that the company possessed but, since the bankruptcy and the emphasis on the bottom line employes seem to be regarded as a liability. Many talented people crucial to the success of the company have been released. It seems that management is mortgaging the future in favor of immediate bottom line results.

    Advice to Management

    Management focus should be more on long range success.
