    Pros

    You are treated like an adult here you are allowed to "think" on your own. Your opinion is valued here you are not just a number you are part of the whole process.

    Cons

    The only thing I could add here is getting management's attention to notice your accomplishments only because they are busy as well as you are but once you get an appointment with them it usually works out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more time for your support staff.

    I have been working at Visteon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Visteon finally has a business strategy and sense of direction that was lacking for most of its history since being spun-off by Ford in 2000. Management desires to succeed and treats people well, and in addition the worksite is quite nice with reasonable work spaces, a good cafeteria and a fitness center on the campus.

    Cons

    Years of staff reductions and very little hiring has resulted in relatively high workloads and stress, and in a rather narrow workforce demographic - most people are between the age of 40 and 55 (although there has been a small amount of hiring younger people recently).

    Former Employee - Engineer  in  Plymouth, MI
    Former Employee - Engineer in Plymouth, MI

    I worked at Visteon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I had several good years at Visteon, working in advanced engineering and the R&D areas. But those were closed along time ago.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. As a product design engineer, I was expected to work 7 days a week, 12 hours a day to meet impossible deadlines that I did not set or agree to. Management just cut and cut resources and expected people to work, for free, to make up the balance. As one of the good engineers, I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Note to management. When I left, you had no clear plan. You treated your engineers like slaves. You paid too little. Demand too many hours. It was a great chance to see what not to do. I've heard it's gotten better, so hopefully someone has learned. But there's a good reason they went bankrupt and they have trouble hiring good engineers. Because we know better.

    I have been working at Visteon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good location for my commute. Very hard working peers and immediate management.

    Cons

    The chaos of auto industry, bankruptcy (brought on to some degree by bad corporate/product strategy and by super-sized exec bonuses) have meant lean times for non-execs at the company. ized exec bonuses) have meant lean times for non-execs at the company. The new CEO decision to decentralize is driving up costs and causing serious organizational disruption. The stock is at its highest and morale is low (even lower than during bankruptcy). The staff reductions and self-induced chaos (from decentralization) is pushing many to their limits and pushing many to leave. There is no work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decentralization might sound like good market analyst fodder, but in 2-3 years when the CEO has cashed out and moved on, the company will be shattered (along with the people). Outsourcing of IT during a time when you are decentralizing, buying/integrating a new unit and separating other units is an out$ourcing vendor's dream come true.
