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

    Pros

    Decent salary, ok benefits, good commute

    Cons

    Management is incompetent and hostile. HR is worthless.
    Pigeon holed in your position. Have to get your manager's permission and their manager's permission just to apply for an internal position.

    Advice to Management

    Break up your little posse. Hire true talent and leaders. Grow the business in sustainable steps. Address the issues.

    Pros

    Job Security.
    People are decent to work with

    Cons

    favoritism.
    management gets quicker chance of promotions than regular staff members. General promotion/move around company requires 3 years. Management Personnel gets to move more frequently. Also, only management is offered bonus. The general staff is who is doing the work, they should get bonus incentive too. Instead of directors getting 50k+ yearly bonuses, regular full time employees should get bonus too

    Advice to Management

    Fix the Cons I listed and you will have a better company.

    I worked at Valeo full-time

    Pros

    Tremendous paycheck (ie. junior manager, around 30 years old, working in Europe: annual income over $100k€)

    Cons

    Middle-Age management, no respect for human being
    No evolution, no way to grow/blossom
    Narrow-minded people, brains are on "off"
    No place for initiatives, it's all about the process (read again Orwell's 1984, you'll know about working with Valeo)
    No leadership (CEO is a 12th century manager), no inspirational values

    Advice to Management

    You don't like humans anyway, hence start hiring robots only.

    I have been working at Valeo full-time

    Pros

    Being a French Company, things dont really need to be done quickly

    Cons

    Lots of Processes, Lots of Acronyms, Infighting between groups for budget, Constant updates to product updates. Bottom-up approach means bottom people do the work, come up with the ideas and the top people will determine if its a good idea. This company deserves to die with the automotive industry as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    If you care about innovative and start-up environment, do not expect that to come from within. it is like a fish telling another fish about what air is like.
