    I worked at Visteon full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great team environment and good salary package. You are given lots of leadway and you have the opportunity to make decisions at the appropriate levels (in most cases).

    Cons

    Not many cons other than the business became much smaller and the focus seemed to shift. Too many days of people concerned about their future.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part continue with what you were doing. Focus on continuing to improve work life balance (as much as you can in automotive). Compensate the team fairly.

    Pros

    There are some cool projects that this company is working on. A good amount of the software developers are very passionate about software.

    Cons

    The company is very slow moving, it is still operating as if it is in danger of going bankrupt. The pay is slightly sub par as well

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing fine. They have been dealt a poor hand by the big moves that the company is making. For example moving everyone in the Holland location to Van Burean caused major loss in talented engineers and management.

    Pros

    Great workplace with great people! Everyone is very professional and greatly qualified, true teamwork! They treat their interns as an active part of their team, treating us like a full-time employee! Depending on the location and time circumstances, I would love to go back there to work!

    I worked at Visteon (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice campus and decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    CEO lives on the East Coast and phones it in. Several other senior leaders live in other cities or other states and phone it in. As a result, they know little about people who work there or how the company actually works. CEO dictates; never listens. He phones it in, so he doesn't see the eyes rolling as he issues his incorrect decrees or displays his lack of understanding of the business. Company is lost and is living on the planning of previous CEOs.

    Advice to Management

    Get a CEO who is open minded and listens to his staff. The current CEO is just a software coder hired in a hurry. Stop hiring prior business associates to run the place. That practice is part of the problem. Fix the diversity problem. Tell employees the truth.

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

    Pros

    I worked at four $1B+ companies before Visteon, and Visteon is a better company to work for than any of them.

    Cons

    Visteon has been running lean on human capital since the JCI acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Can I go home to my family yet? Just kidding.
