Pros

Delphi has a wide range of different products in various parts of the world. So, if you do not like a certain job, there are other projects to work without leaving the company. Salaries are competitive from what I have found talking to other companies. The chapter 11 adventure has taken some of the advantages away, but still a good company.

Cons

Benefits have taken a hit after chapter 11. This will need to improve to attract young engineers to come to Kokomo. Senior management does not have a clue on what will need to happen for future success. Software is king and we are ALL hardware focused. Need twice as many SW engineers to be successful. I just hope our management figures this out before it is too late,.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Engineering, manufacturing, & program management colleagues were excellent, competent, and respectful. We all tried to help each other as much as possible to protect our customers and keep programs on course.

    Cons

    Management was too bureaucratic (management by edict & directive). Company languished in bankruptcy far too long (4 years), then tried to emerge just as the automotive market tanked. Result: massive layoffs. Delphi never became completely independent of GM in 1999 because upper management came from GM and remained too closely tied to it. Also, Delphi inherited all the legacy and contractual commitments GM had with the United Auto Workers without sufficient funds to honor them.

    Advice to Management

    None. Nothing said here would change the way Delphi management operates.

    Pros

    There were, and still are, some good people to work with at Delphi. I'm happy for the ones that got out clean. It's unfortunate that their retirement was turned over to the PBGC.

    Cons

    Piss Poor Communication from management. Poor team work because of poor leadership. It is a depressing place to work because at any second, the place could go belly up.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get a solid game plan. Consistent communication should be across all levels. I shouldn't hear important news days or even hours before my manager tells me. When you get caught with your pants down, don't lie. Man up and tell the truth.
