I worked at Delphi full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Lots of interesting projects to work on.

Cons

Treated like a number. When quarterly results aren't good, management cuts expenses by getting together to decide who they can fire next. Older workers and those that are on sick or pregnancy leave are especially targeted. Management hides this by getting the workers to sign legal releases to prevent them from suing before they will give them any severance money.

Advice to Management

Treat your older workers humanely. They have invested much of their lives to help out your company, and now that they are near retirement, you are dumping them on the job market at an age when they will have a difficult time finding another job. You expect loyalty from your employees yet you are not being loyal to them.

    I have been working at Delphi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging front end technology development. Workforce still in place is very experienced and been reduced to only the high performers of 10 years ago when the corporation was larger.

    Cons

    Continual short term focus on financials and bleeding very experienced talent. Has great challenges in today's marketplace to win new business two grow. Due to continual downsizing, potential for career growth is stagnant or reversed at best.

    I have been working at Delphi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the most brilliant engineers I've ever worked with until the company was taken over by the hedge fund owners. A technology leader that has fallen due to the exodus of the many of the most talented.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, forced retirements, continual salary and benefit cuts, terminated pension plan employees in their 40's and 50's with huge losses to make up in the short time remaining before retirement. Horrible Morale due to employees being viewed as disposable liabilities. Systematically bleeding US locations to death while moving the work offshore.

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude toward your workforce. Morale will not improve until they see that you have a plan to grow the company and value the contributions of a talented workforce.
