    I have been working at Aptiv full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Rare opportunity in Ireland to work in the automotive manufacturing industry. Genuine career opportunities. The company truly embraces diversity. Strong CEO and sense of being in the right place at the right time. Salary, pension and health benefits above average but bonus is only average. Good social scene, great offices and location, free breakfast, friendly co-workers and some memorable nights out.

    Cons

    Top-heavy management structure. Unfortunately there are too many middle management layers who only have administration/delegation capability rather than hands-on capability and direct experience.

    I worked at Aptiv full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was my first job out of college, and I liked most of the people I worked with. I got to work on some interesting stuff.

    Cons

    There was a big age gap when I got hired, as most of the engineers had been there pre ~2008 crash. There was a period there where the company took on a more projects that its personnel count could support, so there was a good chunk of salaried overtime.

    I have been working at Aptiv full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good place for people just want to get paid, doesn't matter if you can do the work or not as long as you got hired here

    Cons

    the direction of how to do self-driving car is wrong here, already falls behind the industry, but the marketing is really good at bluffing, and makes its stock price looks pretty good. But this is not good for your career path, and you will find your skills are mostly out of date in the related industry.

    I have been working at Aptiv full-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities to be successful at Aptiv if you’re hardworking and like to be involved with continuous improvement. Total rewards package is very good.

    Cons

    Very siloed company with much duplication. Value “OneTeam” is aspirational versus reality.
