      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Valeo full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Work environment is good, people are friendly. Room for improvement. Freedom to choose your work. Good 401k matching program.

      Cons

      Work load is high (not a 5 to 9 job + lots of worked weekends and no compensation). Depends too much on temporary visa workers which indicates lack of competitiveness to attract local skilled talents and unethical employees treating practices. Training budget is low or non-existent. Company losing money for the past couple of years.

      Advice to Management

      Retain your skilled engineers. Hire more to offset the work load. Spend more on training.

      Pros

      Holiday Pay I Get To Go Home

      I worked at Valeo full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Automatic 401K Contribution, Most policies are versions of Industry Standard

      Cons

      Valeo is addicted to the appearance of successful policies but not the substance or understanding behind them. Most management is done by metrics which almost no one will break, regardless of the impact on the company. Short term financial impact is everything. Plans for the future seem to be based on being 3rd or 4th comer into new areas by entering them after several years of media attention on the first movers, without...

      Advice to Management

      Management is in a giant bubble, mostly of its own creation, with metrics and data that are molded to fit what they need to be. Get out of the bubble, talk to people that are not in management. Ask what is wrong or missed because of the current metrics. And for the love of god, do something about the structural problem of Site IS that will shut down active production equipment because of global directives without...
