    Visteon finally seems to have a direction and a chance to be successful.

    Associate Director (Current Employee)
    Van Buren Township, MI

    ProsVisteon 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.

    ConsYears 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).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Constant layoffs from 2001 through bankruptcy in 2009. Lost job along with thousands of other workers.

    Company seems to be on the rise since I left.

    Product Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Van Buren Township, MI

    ProsI worked at Visteon for many years, and the company never really had a growth plan that worked during my tenure. Now, post-bankruptcy, the company is doing quite well, and they seem to have geared to their strengths.

    ConsEmployees were left guessing many times what was really going on within the organization. Personal growth opportunities were not always very apparent on an individual level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the nimble approach and providing great customer service to gain more customers. Treat suppliers with respect and as true partners.

    Electronics Corporate Finance - Very poor and I would not recommend it.

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Van Buren Township, MI

    Pros-Work was fast paced and challenging;
    -Systems were decent;
    -Learning was a staple of the role which meant I got a lot of experience for my time;
    -Some of the smartest people in the automotive industry work here;
    -Good location with a good work environment (trails to walk, good scenery, a gym).

    Cons-Terrible pay;
    -Company outlook is poor and everyone is afraid of loosing their job, this creates a terrible culture;
    -When someone leaves or a position is eliminated, management just delegates out the work to the already stretched staff making it impossible to work less than 60+ hours a week;
    -Upper management is very narrow minded and they are not open to change or suggestions from lower level employees;
    -There was zero recognition given for process improvement and additional workload;
    -Management made promises they did not keep (in regards to promotions in a given time period);
    -The international aspect of the company is terrible - zero coordination.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like humans and be open to improvement. Follow through on your word and learn how to run a business rather than just cutting costs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
