    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.

    I worked at Visteon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Interesting Assignments
    -beautiful location by an artificial lake
    -good cafeteria

    Cons

    -no much interaction between employers
    -Poor company culture

    Advice to Management

    There are interesting things to do at the company. Especially if you are interested in HMI and Infotainment systems software development; but they need to fix the company culture. It seems like everybody is on their own and you don't really get to know any of your co-workers and most of them don't really seem to have interest on getting to know you.

    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.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. The facility / offices are top notch. The company had great people and good internal processes with cost focus. Pay and bonus structure was excellent.

    Cons

    Unstable business environment. There have been lots of leadership changes and changes in company direction and outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and communicate the long term corporate direction. The people there have done great things even when the future was shaky.

    Pros

    Great people - high potential for success

    Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Many changes after re-structuring - not sure who it wants to be when Visteon grows up.

    High uncertainty about retention. Many pieces of the business sold off - don't know which is next.

    Advice to Management

    Do things right for a few years before biting off more than can be chewed. Get consistency, then adjust.

    I worked at Visteon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work on cutting edge technology and meet some of the best mentors. My manager always had my growth in mind and assigned projects accordingly. He also made an effort to stay in touch after the internship was over. Visteon hired about 30 interns and we all had lunch together which was always fun.

    Cons

    Most interns were locals which was slightly disappointing. If there are out of state interns, they're more interested in meeting new people, making new relationships and exploring the city.

    I worked at Visteon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good for those starting a career just to get some quick experience or those finishing out a career and looking for a bonus to stick around until the doors close.

    Cons

    No future and local employers know those who could leave have left already so not a good place to be if you want to spend the rest of your career in the local market.

    Advice to Management

    The company has been pretty open with employees about the direction it is headed selling off what it can.

    Pros

    Good people who want to make a difference. Opportunity to have a voice in what you do.

    Cons

    Continual reorganizations. Continual reminders from upper management that NA employees don't matter. Problems happen elsewhere globally and NA employees pay the price (such as salary taking a forced 1 week temporary layoff with half pay...but your work still has to get done). No training, few opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    It's your NA employees who keep bailing you out. Start treating them with respect instead of a "cost" to be gotten rid of.
