    Work at Delphi

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsThis was my first job after i graduated from college. Naturally i was very excited and eager to prove myself. The initial training is excellent. The work depends on what project you will be put into. Some projects are really interesting and challenging. The project I was working was very interesting. If you do a good job there are lot of opportunities for growth. I had to quit because i decided to pursue a graduate degree.

    Cons* Poor management
    * This is a very niche industry
    * Not enough challenging work
    * Sometimes promotions are not given to right people

    Advice to Senior Management* Very important to recognise true talent
    * The processes that are being following is very good
    * Management needs to be more strealined

    You need to struggle very hard to grow here.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsThere is a lot of exposure to technology. If you are a self learner this is a good place to work.

    ConsNot an Open-culture as the management claims.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect the good people in the company, else they will leave. Appreciation for an employee's efforts must be equal in all teams. The people engagement practices claimed to be implemented must be implemented more effectively.

    Delphi company review from Employee's standpoint

    Tech Lead (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best reasons to work for Delphi are their diversity and depth in technology, which ranges from autmotive design, electronics and safety, telematics, radios and lately also in new ventures like Medical. The company has strong respect for in-depth technical knowledge and has established a base to help new products make best use of the technology base.
    It is specially making big inroads in automotive industry , winning new businesses from other customer apart from GM, from whichit had spun off about a decade ago.
    If you are looking for a rewarding career being a Electrical , mechanical of Embedded software engineer, working on the cutting edge of technolgy in automotive domain, this is the place to be.

    ConsThe company has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing for about 2-3 years now. With the economic downturn its turning out to be much harder for the organisation to pull it out of it. With weakened Automotive industry and loss of business with lot of automakers, the future of the organisation that is already in a messed up financial state looks bleak unless it takes some very strong measures, innovates in the way it does business, and the forays its making in other domains other than autmotive to reduce the risk of exposure to only one business.
    Unless some very clear actions and results emerge on the above points , thinking of a long term career in Delphi is a risk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management should strongly focus on getting the company out of Chapter 11 as soon as possible. Also it has to see in the current economic situation what avenues it can look for to diversify its portfolio if business above and beyond just autmotive to hedge the risk of complete exposure to an already week worldwide automotive industry.
    The company has strong expertise in electrical, mechanical and embedded sofware engineering. This combination can be best made use of to launch itself in other businesses where it sees opportunity. It has already done the same in Medical and has come out with couple of successful products. Perhaps looking at how Health care industry is growing, it should look at coming up with some more Medical equipments, making use of its technical expertise.

    Summer internship at Delphi (Auburn Hills Campus)

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI (US)

    ProsDelphi assigns high priority and must-ship features to the interns. The intern program, although new, is strong and improving every year. Delphi is positioned to be successful in the future and the internship program they have reflects their desire to search for the best candidates.

    ConsManagement is lacking, although they did just finish a reorg so there will be a few years of ramp up before the company will regain it's full productivity. The work is slow in comparison to tech companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHad a recent reorg, no comment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    stressful

    Senior Product Engineer (Former Employee) Saginaw, MI (US)

    ProsChallenging 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees with families are an asset not a liability

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
