    I have been working at Visteon full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There seem to be some extremely talented and articulate people in the company, very impressed - just not corporately

    Cons

    There is a culture of "Ready, Fire, Aim" when it comes to layoffs and the bottom line. No consideration of long term implications. Will cut off limbs to save a buck. No mercy will be shown. CEO seems competent, President should be paid not to talk - he seems to be focused on stamping out any brief signs of hope for a better future. My facility has easily lost 100 people (skilled, experienced veterans) in the last month. We are approaching crisis levels in staffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like a typical Detroit company and wake up to how the rest of the planet operates. You do not have a truly global operation - you just think you do. Treat employees like humans instead of variable overhead - you would be amazed how trust can multiply employee value.

    Pros

    Clean work environment, compensation is comparable to the rest of the market.

    Cons

    Communication is not one of the corporations strong points. When asked for a detailed rollout plan for moving forward, "its up to you" is the response that is given. Work life balance is also something that is not maintained well.

    Pros

    A few good people still there, great tech campus that "almost was", visionary VP. The owners of their stock will get rich when they sell off all viable divisions.

    Cons

    Still in bankruptcy, complete and udder inability to grow, even after a $260M acquisition. The team at GLCC are the "walking dead", all they know is hack, wack and off-shore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump the old school Ford & bankruptcy leaders, get some new ones!

    I worked at Visteon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people who want to make a difference. Opportunity to have a voice in what you do.

    Cons

    Continual reorganizations. Continual reminders from upper management that NA employees don't matter. Problems happen elsewhere globally and NA employees pay the price (such as salary taking a forced 1 week temporary layoff with half pay...but your work still has to get done). No training, few opportunities for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's your NA employees who keep bailing you out. Start treating them with respect instead of a "cost" to be gotten rid of.
