    North American Plant

    Industrial Management Controller (Former Employee) Troy, MI

    ProsLearned more about the automotive production side of business.

    ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementTake 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.

    Job with no future and no career...

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Troy, MI

    ProsGood salary, benefits, close to freeway.

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementImplement all the values you often mention for real not just in Paper.

    Interesting experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsValeo is a well-known industrial company, having multiple sites around the world, so there are many career opportunities abroad. Managers are good.

    ConsThere can be some pressure to meet short deadlines.
    It seems difficult to find a good balance between work and personal life in that company in some sites, except if you are working in the French ones.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
