    I have been working at Delphi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -above market average salary for junior and intermediate engineers.
    -lots of internal training provided.
    -lots of lesson learnt database and design guidelines and standard available for reference.
    -good annual leave entitlement and employee sign-up bonus (may not be available now).

    Cons

    -Delphi Singapore is already more than 35 years old with very stagnant workforce and too many managerial positions. As a result, it's a high cost design centre.
    -working levels resources are freezed and engineers need to juggle several projects.
    -project/top management has the upper power in influencing the company decision making based on cost instead of technical know-how and feasibility. Basically, Delphi values employees with leadership and management skills instead of in-depth technical skills. This can be seen in promoting non-competent managers (with no proven/known technical background/knowledge). Just purely based on number of years working in Delphi SDEC.
    -severe micro-management can been seen in certain departments.
    -professionalism and 'phor'fesionalism (apple polishing) attitudes are valued but 'phor'fesionalism takes the precedence.
    -lack of top level management decision making due to 'error-phobia' mindset. Afraid to make mistakes and wrong decision. Engineers are criticized heavily if not able to decide quickly.
    -Recent market share (powertrain, sensors, Body safety and chassis) decreased to 4% according to last year's survey (Bosch 20%, Continental 20%, Denso 11%, there are several others with 4%).
    -too customers centric to the extent some confidential information given to customers. Customers-friendly attitude is always seen as good for Delphi Singapore (which is often wrong).
    -information flow is bad as there are many parties trying to be 'Single-point contact' in gathering information and showing leadership skills but lack of in-depth technical skills to solve problem down to the root cause.
    -3 Legged 5 Whys is overrated and overemphasized whenever problems happened.
    -Favoritism and biased treatment can be seen within competencies and intercompetencies. Like a triad society. Very political indeed.

    Advice to Management

    -reflect your management styles or wait for the worst to come.
    -technical paths for engineers need to be preserved instead of reduced as it is the core problem solving resources for the future of Delphi.
    -live up to your 7 Absolutes of Excellence or we are doomed.
