    Pros

    They are good at selling the company piecemeal. They are good at replacing personnel with a green card workforce.

    Cons

    Not sure management has a clear direction or understands how a real business operates

    Advice to Management

    Figure out whether you want to operate a business or just buy and sell yourself into oblivion.

    Pros

    Automotive industry pay, holidays, and vacation policies are generous. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Management not trustworthy. Disappointed they are closing Holland office. Management does not seem to have a long term strategy, and seem to just be preparing the company to sell to an unsuspecting company that will find a mess remaining, due to the slashing and short-sighted actions.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees.

    Pros

    Some great people. Now focused on one product line, but that happens to be the product line that puts them in competition with Apple, Google, & Microsoft.

    Cons

    Visteon has experienced too much transition over the last several years, which has led to removal of key functions to operate effectively and not enough forward thinking to make it a modern company. They still think big is better rather than better is better.

    Pros

    The customers really liked the orange pens I used to hand out. I wrote this because I HAD to have at least 5 words - my original answer was NONE.

    Cons

    I was hired for a specific job but happily accepted a special assignment went there was a problem. The special assignment was supposed to last a week. 2.5 years later, after working over 80 hours every week and never getting the assistant that I begged for and had been promised, they layed me off. An upper level manager lived closer to the job site and was going to take over my position so they didn't have to pay per diem or hotels anymore AND they had hired someone else to do my original job so I didn't have anywhere to go. They then promised me a job at a different facility in 6 months (after the holidays), and then decided I was overqualified. Oh and the upper level manager that took my job screwed things up so bad after I left that the customer was calling me on my personal phone asking for help months later. Horrible management, horrible policies, horrible employee relations.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to tell the truth. Stop being such a bunch of back stabbing, deceitful, horrible people. You are the embodiment of everything wrong with the auto industry.

    Pros

    Good people in the Holland, MI area. Great products (Mazda Connect System)!!! The area is A+ (all four seasons with great beaches).

    Cons

    Lack of corporate support for the work that needs to be done. Former bankrupt company still acting like a bankrupt company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to find ways to cut costs. Quit thinking like a bankrupt company. Increase the revenue with current amazing products that you already have. Value your employees!!!

    Pros

    Good Benifits, fair wages, good vacation policy.

    Cons

    Leadership of this company has no foresight and future planning. The focus seems to be very narrow and I would not be surprised if they are sold to another company within the next two years.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the future plans for the business to the working members of the team. Let them be part of the process and know what is around the corner. Foster a work environment of creativity instead of a suffocating work environment where the employees feel they have no idea where the company is headed.
