A great learning experience with a large product portfolio
Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIMay 24, 2017
The company gave a great deal of potential to learn about product, process, and strategy.
Strong leaders that are willing to mentor up and coming employees.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the customer interaction and cross competency teams aligned to pursue business.

Home away from home!
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Moraine, OHMay 15, 2017
A typical day included greeting our coworkers we were there to relieve for the day, pulling our shift with plenty of quality work, laughs, hugs, love, dedication and make sure we left there as healthy and whole as we entered.
I learned to run different machines.
Management was very good and also like family. It wasn't us against them. It was "WE"!
There were no hard parts to working here. The hard part was watching them close up and move to Mexico and watching so many people suffer because of it.
The fun part of the job was being able to perform great work and meet numbers, fixing our own machine problems within realm, having great coworking family, the Potluck meals, the special events, the suggestion winners, the plant tours for our families and the overtime opportunities.
Pros
Pay, benefits, retirement and tuition reimbursement
Cons
We didn't receive transfer rights into another GM facility.

Horrible Culture at the Warren N River Rd. Plant
Manager (Former Employee) –  Warren, OHMay 2, 2017
I worked there for 7 years and can honestly say I have never seen a place so dominated by a vocal, politically connected group like that place. If you do not know anyone, do not bother to apply or expect to be promoted. The place is almost ready to be torn down and probably should be. It is time for the dinosaurs to go to the woods. The whole concept of pay tiers for people doing the exact same job is ridiculous and seems more in step with the employment practices of the 70's, not the modern workplace.
Pros
None
Cons
Culture, Pay tiers, Worse Benefits compared to older workers. Outdated.

PRODUCTION OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Kettering, OHApril 24, 2017
Delphi was not a very bad place to work but some of the jobs that you may do could be a bit strenuous and if your not use to working at a particular pace or good at meeting quotas then this would not be the place for you.
Pros
great pay and benefits
Cons
Line supervisor watched over us like a security guy or something

Not a place to stay
Product Engineer (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYApril 15, 2017
Day to day work can be relaxed or very intense, it tends to vary based on mistakes of others, suppliers or management. Probably typical, but workflow can be frustrating. Very thin resources makes it very hard to use or rely on other departments. Crisis du jour seems to dictate much of that. Contract employees with little loyalty make it difficult to form reliable connections.

Excellent place to learn. This is perhaps the best part of this company. The culture is focused on improving knowledge and sharing knowledge. Sometimes it can be frustrating as management can be spun into circles with the same information over and over with no real feedback to the engineers. For the most part, design, analysis and test processes are well regarded. In R&D, this is adhered to well. Sometimes in productive situations, too much faith is put into analysis or sometimes it is neglected until a problem is present. Most of the corporation seems very reactive as opposed to being proactive.

Management, leadership, and vision are marginal at best. Perhaps there are a few individuals that have it, but so much bureaucracy that it can be easily stifled. Again, everything is mostly reactive rather than proactive, especially from the so-called leaders despite yearly pep talks that tout the contrary. Many upper managers float from company to company and many lower-to-middle managers are lifers, which usually means they are stuck there for a reason. There seems to be a core of lifers who are never let go and don't retire even after many years of service but hang on or are shuffled around
  more... to different positions. Very few fresh ideas or direction from management.

The culture is not bad, and used to be better. Lots of diversity and many smart and interesting individuals, although those who wanted to go somewhere in their career typically left. Treatment of employees is not great due rampant use of contract workers. This two-tier labor structure creates a lot of tension. Those who are not lucky enough to find better work ride the lay-off and rehire roller coaster, and those who do find something better are gone for good. Many good, knowledgeable and productive employees who actually do the work of the company are lost this way. Management often regards experienced and capable individuals as a commodity that can be bought at the lowest price, but very rarely does this strategy actually work. The result is a very top heavy corporation with a lot of turn-around on the bottom.

The most difficult part of the job is dealing with dwindling resources both in workforce and in equipment. Constant changes in technician and designer structure makes difficult work for engineers. Lack of changes in lower management i.e. "the core" of the company keep things stagnant. Continual changes in upper management make the entire company very unstable. It seems a number of individuals make their job in reorganizing what their job is. And perhaps making new jobs for their bureaucratic core. Company lacks real labor force of technicians, designers and engineers that actually design, develop and test the products.

The best part of the job is learning new things, and overcoming difficult challenges. It's the same that any engineering job would have as the reward.

Every employee was valued
Production Control & Logistics/Material Specialist (Former Employee) –  Oak Creek, WIApril 14, 2017
The company was a place everyone wanted to work at. Most employees worked there most of their adult lives. There was very little turnover at this location. Employees were valued and asked for improvement suggestions. When starting up a new product lines everyone was involved.
Pros
everyone was considered a valuable employee and they always produced a quality product.
Cons
Company moved to Mexico
