    Pros

    It was a summer internship, decent pay and friendly people. On the job training and helpful managers. If I was in school I would work there again

    Cons

    warehouse setting, always on your feet, redundant tasks. If you arent a hands on type of person this job isnt for you.

    Former Employee - Industrial Management Controller in Troy, MI

    I worked at Valeo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned more about the automotive production side of business.

    Cons

    Lack of training at all levels. There is no regard for work life balance. No one blinks a eye to employees working 12-14 hour days, daily. Too many bosses to report to. I had 5 people I reported to and none of them had any idea what direction I was getting from the others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take team members personal life into consideration and know it doesn't make them a bad employee to leave after 10 or 12 hour days. Creating a strong induction process for new hires outside of Valeo especially. Reduce the amount of bosses, it becomes to much to report to so many people, most of which aren't in the same state or country.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, close to freeway.

    Cons

    They just want to make money at lowest cost. Will only hire interns and will make engineers compete with each other. HR goals is a mockery. I heard that Thermal division is good though. Customers very dissatisfied and order cancellations likely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement all the values you often mention for real not just in Paper.
