Pros

It might be close to your home. After layoffs of 75% of workforce, only the best people are left. The employees still here are committed and motivated, plus some of the bureacracy has been reduced because the paper shuffling personnel just aren't there any more.
The products are some of the most interesting in the auto industry, and even in the world.

Cons

Benefits cuts. No raises for years as we continue to shoulder a larger portion of the insurance costs. Expected to pick up the slack as three of every four people were laid off. No recognition, few opportunities for growth (training).

Advice to Management

Stop treating people like replaceable cogs. Coming up with artificial "Fun At Work" days to replace the things that were actually "fun" wasn't successful.

    U.S. employees are deemed expensive and on-going focus on reducing U.S. ranks.
    Committed to off shoring engineering even as quality performance and engineering efficiency is imploding and customers are downgrading quality status and placing Delphi in business hold.
    Travel policy and Business Decisions not comprehending physical risk to employees due to Mexican locations.
    Chapter 11 headcount reductions of experienced people went too far and execution is failing.

    Advice to Management

    As job market improves you will see a mass exudos of employees who have watched U.S. experienced base be obliterated and yet the same individuals being asked to "bail out" low cost regions repeatedly. You get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Training is very good, they promote learing and you have access to subject matter experts. Generally, you are allowed to get as much certifications and specialized training that you want, provided that you stay on top of your work assignmants.

    Cons

    Pay, benefits, and promotional opportunities can lag other industries by the fact that much of the high volume manufacturing is being outsourced overseas for the auto industry.
