    Pros

    Good pay, lots of opportunity for learning and mobility.

    Cons

    Workload is overstretched in midst of rapid growth. Systems are not sophisticated as you would expect. Much fragmentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on mastering quality projects, rather than trying to do so many projects at once with mimimal resources.

    Pros

    - Challenging as they throw you into the job right from the first hour. No training, everything you will learn while working. You can learn a lot in first 2 yrs as they will give as much responsibilities as you want.

    Cons

    No growth, very flat structured organization. Pay, below par the average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the engineering requirements

    Pros

    strong - finance driven company

    Cons

    too process oriented - too much paper work pushing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not pushout the A - level employees because you feel threatend by top performers. surrounding yourselves with C-level employeess does not keep in your jobs for vert long

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Rochester, NY

    I worked at Valeo (US)

    Pros

    Good systems, opportunity to learn in a structured envirionment. Experienced coworkers provide good support and advice. Opportunities to move within organization if you are willing to move. Regular performance reviews and pay increases - not too high though!

    Cons

    Thinks the world revolves around them sometimes. Too willing to take business at any price. Cost reduction is emphasised too much on existing products rather than next generation designs - always seemd to be chasing the cost target. This firm has limited US opperations and therefore has a limited geographic footprint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on indirect costs rather than direct labor, do not quote at a loss or break even just to win contracts
