    I worked at Delphi full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Delphi has very good work-life balance. Family always comes first and getting time off for emergencies or to take care of loved ones is no problem. Rarely did I work over 40 hours per week. Other employees were friendly. Very structured and highly organized work environment.

    Cons

    Delphi went through a brutal restructuring that left morale extremely low. When revenue was off, Temporary Layoff was required. There was little room for advancement. Constantly tight budgets meant raises were few and far between, and were very small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risks to turn around sales and share the wealth with employees to improve morale. Reduce bureaucracy and encourage more creativity. Invest more in marketing to strengthen the brand and improve sales.

    Good technology company, quality is important, has good people

    Is becoming overly financially focused and not as much focused on developing people. Because of this it is getting harder to satisfy customers.

    Pros

    Challenging projects. Interesting portfolio. Most employees are easy to work with. Room for growth. A wide variety of training available. Will pay for classes towards a degree if related to job description.

    Cons

    office culture. Not a good home/work balance. Low moral. "Them and us" attitude between salary and hourly employees. Constant pressure to cut costs.

    I worked at Delphi full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Timings, Nice work-life balance, OK for personal growth and satisfaction. Good and challenging technical work if you are in right team. Again, good onsite opportunities in the right team.

    Cons

    In most of the cases, pay Appraisal depends on your relation ship with manager and not your hard work. Seniors try to suppress freshers as there is less growth and people get stuck in same position for long time.

    Current Employee - Engineer - Electronics Design in Singapore (Singapore)
    Current Employee - Engineer - Electronics Design in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at Delphi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -challenging electronics design and development working environment
    -above market average salary for junior and intermediate engineers.
    -lots of internal training/development provided.
    -lots of lesson learnt database and design guidelines and standard available for reference.
    -good annual leave entitlement and employee sign-up bonus (may not be available now).

    Cons

    -Delphi Singapore is already 35 years old with very stagnant workforce and too many managerial positions. As a result, it's a high cost design centre.
    -working levels resources are freezed and engineers need to juggle several projects.
    -project/top management has the upper power in influencing the company decision making based on cost instead of technical know-how and feasibility. Basically, Delphi values employees with leadership and management skills instead of in-depth technical skills. This can be seen in promoting non-competent managers (with no proven/known technical background/knowledge).
    -micro-management can been seen in certain departments.
    -professionalism and 'phor'fesionalism (apple polishing) attitudes are valued but 'phor'fesionalism takes the precedence.
    -lack of top level management decision making due to 'error-phobia' mindset. Afraid to make mistakes and wrong decision. Engineers are criticized heavily if not able to decide quickly.
    -Recent market share (powertrain, sensors, Body safety and chassis) decreased to 4% according to last year's survey (Bosch 20%, Continental 20%, Denso 11%, there are several others with 4%).
    -too customers centric to the extent some confidential information given to customers. Customers-friendly attitude is always seen as good for Delphi Singapore (which is often wrong).
    -information flow is bad as there are many parties trying to be 'Single-point contact' in gathering information and showing leadership skills but lack of in-depth technical skills to solve problem down to the root cause.
    -3 Legged 5 Whys is overrated and overemphasized whenever problems happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -reflect your management styles or wait for the worst to come.
    -technical paths for engineers need to be preserved instead of reduced as it is the core problem solving skills and resources for the future of Delphi.
    -live up to your 7 Absolutes of Excellence or we are doomed.
