Hilo driver (Former Employee) – Highland Park, MI – July 15, 2016
Visteon was a very productive work environment to work at, the staff was very nice and truly great to work with. I learned a lot in the field of management and how to work well with others. For the most part majority of my co-workers were great to work with. I believe the hardest part of the job was meeting the highest expectations on our supplier. The enjoyable part of the was meeting the expectations of our supplier.

Team Leader (Former Employee) – TN – December 6, 2015
This was a small company so we all were like family. The pay was ok but having a good clean friendly atmosphere make a big difference when you are there 5 to 6 days a week. So sad that they went out of business in 2010.
If you are interested in a career at the convergence point between Information Technology, Mobility, and the Automotive Industry, Visteon may be a good place to look. Leadership prior to June 2015 was poor from an employee standpoint (divestiture happy, no long term vision, low job security), new CEO should be given a chance though as the board seems committed to long term company and product success.
As is common in many organizations, issues with having the right resources, in the right place, at the right time can cause workload balancing issues. This was offset by very flexible work scheduling and working from home options, though those could be manager dependent.
Very solid compensation levels, higher than others in my area for certain.
Some caution advised based on work site / role, as the company has been consolidating locations and may be looking for low cost country options for current positions in the future if at all feasible. In all fairness they have handled these situations as equitably as possible when they arise, just be sure to go in with your eyes open.
Co-workers were fantastic, where this company goes at this point is up to the effectiveness of the new CEO.
Compensation, flexible work schedule, co-worker quality
Ongoing consolidations and low cost country focus, lacking long-term employee commitment, future direction uncertainty
The company taught me how to conduct myself in the work place

I liked it because I could just come in put my headphones on and get my job done. There was an extensive amount of politics of course because it was union, but a lot of good people that made the day go by fast.

Scroll Anodise/Impreg Operator (Former Employee) – Connersville, IN – May 29, 2015
A typical day at work was run a million parts and hurry up doing it. I learned that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Management was difficult at times.My co-workers are the only thing that kept me from quitting. The hardest part of the job was working your rear off. The most enjoyable time was at quitting time.
