    I worked at Valeo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great people to work with. The Seminar every year

    Cons

    I was at the Valeo Service Aftermarket office in Virginia. Management has no clue about the market place in the US. They will not listen to you as they think that their experience in Europe is the same. All management are from another country. No way to move up if your from the US. Only like to hire single no family young employees so they can over work and under pay. Has a crazy high turnover rate and they do not care.

    Everything is on a global structure so purchasing in global and based out of France. Quality is OE like structure and out of China. Very hard to get things done on time as your main project is not their focus.

    Also they do not even have a HR person in the US office, is that even legal?

    Advice to Management

    Listen and react. Minimize and restructure. Get someone that actually knows the market place run the departments.

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

    Pros

    Pay can be substantially higher than other markets depending upon your knowledge and job title. Benefits are very generous as typically found in factories.

    Cons

    Family time will be greatly affected to the point of working 12 hours a day 6-7 days a week. European divisions will be compensated with long vacations, but not American divisions. Advancement can be very politically based. Training for advancement is available, but only on your time (production comes 1st). If you are in top 5% of engineering group you have no back-up counterpart. You can count on call-in meetings on vacation days, vacations being cancelled, and being contacted while out sick and in bed.

    Advice to Management

    Family first should be the message to all managers. Offer paid sabbaticals and/or more vacation time to United States divisions.
