    I worked at Visteon full-time for more than 8 years

    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 - Product Design Engineer in Van Buren Township, MI

    I worked at Visteon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Employees 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Visteon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I felt that my summer spent there was well worth it. I was able to work on multiple projects and obtain solid engineering experience. The labs were top-notch.

    Cons

    A lot of downtime between projects and assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the internship program more interactive, with greater emphasis on testing and data analysis.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst  in  Van Buren Township, MI
    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Van Buren Township, MI

    I worked at Visteon full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat 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.
