    Pros

    Flexible work schedule at times.

    Cons

    Uncertainty in companies future creates morale problems. These problems have been caused by the credit crisis and rise in commodities especially fuel converging to prevent the company from emerging from bankruptcy. The company has been in bankruptcy for several years now and no end seems to be in sight. A venture capital firm pulled out of a deal at the last minute in April and with GM our former parent company also in very bad trouble things look very bleak for the future. The only growing part of the company seems to be the foreign operations in China and the rest of the far east.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.

    Pros

    Great place to flush your career down the toilet.

    Cons

    Delphi is a worst place to start a career. Performance and growth oriented professionals should stay away from Delphi.

    Advice to Management

    Stop surrounding yourself with charlatans and give a chance to true leaders that can add value to the progress of the company.

    Pros

    Large Corporation. Good stepping stone.

    Cons

    It's more of a 'who you know' then of 'what you know'. if you're an ass-kisser, you'll get far. they do not treat their employees good. and direct hires look down at contract workers. it's disgusting!

    Advice to Management

    Realize that it's the people at the bottom that made your company. Without them there would be no 'Senior Management'. Treat people right!

    Pros

    I've been there so long, I think I can hang on 'til 30 years. Plus, nobody can sell a house here now that Delphi and Chrysler are in the tank.

    Cons

    No raises or promotions for the four years we've been in bankruptcy, 25% layoffs followed by more layoffs, emplyees required to be on temporary layoff two weeks a quarter

    Advice to Management

    How are we going to perform after banruptcy emergence if everyone's gone due to layoffs or getting fed up with the conditions? I know there's always a good excuse for why we're not out of bankruptcy yet, but you sure wouldn't accept all those excuses if you were evaluating OUR performance at the working level.

    Pros

    Hmmm...hard to think of one. Maybe if you were looking for a specific vehicle discount that they have available to their employees

    Cons

    Compensation is lacking along with any vision or leadership. The leadership continues to say they don't see changes on the horizon and are always shocked with a downturn in the automotive market. There is no plan that has been made visible to the employees as to how or when they plan to exit bankruptcy. Additionally no real changes have been made while they are in bankruptcy to try to make it a profitable company afterward. Some organizational names have been changed but Delphi still runs like it is a part of GM.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and work to retain some talent

    Pros

    If it ever exits bankruptcy, Delphi should see growth. It has an established infrastructure and manufacturing base that should provide an advantage relative to other auto part suppliers. There is a long, established history of quality products. There is a diverse product base within automotive and for non-automotive customers, US and internationally. There is core of good people remaining, but time will tell how effective they will allowed to be. Several US and overseas operations. Reasonable compensation and benefits, but it is unclear of the future of present benefit levels. Probably an ideal scenario for a strong individual to come in, lead, and make a difference.

    Cons

    it is in bankruptcy and being kept on "life-support" mode. It was run into the ground by Harvard MBA types with more ability to "bully and intimidate" than to lead. There is an over-reliance on creating business cases using manufacturing sites in Mexico, China, etc. In many of these scenarios, even if the labor were free, the logistics to support such remote locations is a drain on local staff. At present, the company is in a survival mode, and the mood is heavy and desperate. There is core of good people remaining, but it is not clear if the leadership will force them out as well.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for cleaning up the tangled mess left by the GM legacy. Admit your mistakes, make changes, and cease distracting employees with slogan-of-month quality poster contests. Clear out the nested red tape and phony quality & info systems. Learn to lead and be honest & open in doing so.

    Pros

    When Delphi was a division of General Motors and even after the Spin-Off it was a great place to work. The Compensation and benefits were very good. The working relationships with fellow employees both coworkers and supervisors were great. Even working with the union members was good. It was a big happy family.

    Cons

    After the Spin-Off from GM upper management rerplaced the local Director with someone from out of town that was not a people person. He was put in to cut personell and ship the business out of the country. This is when the lies and deceit started. They sent the company into bankruptcy and started cutting people left and right. I was severed because I was one of the oldest andmost expensive engineers. We ended up training our own replacements, even the ones that went overseas. In retirement they cut our medical benefits and sent our pensions to the PBGC where we will loose our suppliment, in my case up to $15,000 a year or about 33%. Others much more.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and go back to PEOPLE FIRST. Bring manufacturing back to the states and let the supervisors do their jobs. It can not be cheaper to ship material in from China then it does to produce it here especially since you have gotten rid of what you called the burden of the pension program.

    Pros

    Exciting product line and customer base
    Top notch training on modern quality tools and methods
    Good benefits
    Provides global experience with locations around the world

    Cons

    No regard for knowledge and experience as >50% of US workforce has been shed
    No raises in 3 yrs and now demotions as company bought by equity investor
    Entire segments of company dismantled - a mere shell of former self
    Run by firmly entrenched old boys network very resistant to make substantive changes

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing by metrics alone. Recognize the value of skilled personnel located near the customer. Moving every job to Mexico cannot be the answer to everything

    Pros

    Delphi used to be a great place to work, however, the bankruptcy dragged out for too long. Prior to the bankruptcy, employees felt rewarded and somewhat secure in their jobs.

    Cons

    Since emergence from bankruptcy, the company has become ruthless and has cut pay and benefits. No one feels secure working there.

    Advice to Management

    From Rodney O'Neal on down, the key management needs to change, afterall they are why Delphi is in the shape it is in and many of those executive still remain to continue to make mistakes.
