    I have been working at Valeo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cutting edge R&D going into Mass Production Really interesting and helpful people from near and far Amazing technology coming out of a small town in Ireland Great place to gain massive experience across departments

    Cons

    Military Style Loyalty, people laugh at leavers, as if they aren't good enough when it's the culture is so toxic! Understaffed across all departments, people taking on multiple roles, then leaving a 3 person gap, Hiring ban in place means less gets done and "lower" level managers get stressed Small company mentality when it comes to staffing critical departments. Very Cliquey mentality with departments but if you can break that down the people are lovely as they are in the same boat as you. Management are so far behind when it comes to staffing and Retention of staff, they can barely keep up with the exit interviews let alone report what departments need help, But instead wonder how they can get reviews like this deleted

    Advice to Management

    Running a disjointed site on a shoe string will never succeed! Lead by example and have 100 day plans or something! Fire staff that are doing nothing, hire young graduates to do the footwork, then reward them!

    I worked at Valeo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Fantastic group of people to work with, both the recruitment team and hiring managers - Great support for me as new to recruitment - Enjoyed the company atmosphere, everyone was really helpful lovely to work with - Sound, down to earth and really great work ethic in the company

    Cons

    - More effort should be made to keep morale high

    Advice to Management

    - My advice would be to have more of a presence one the floor, and have more of a personal connection with engineers, developers, technicians etc to boost morale

    I have been working at Valeo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some great staff in production, health insurance, pension scheme, decent pay, no major traffic, good parking

    Cons

    It literally doesnt matter how much hard work you put in or how good you are at your job, you will never be rewarded. They promote from inside the company and base it not on how good you are at your job but how long you have worked there. They wont investigate problems properly leading to ridiculous gross misconduct/misconduct cases in HR with people involved in them that had nothing to do with the issue. Easy way of dismissing people without having to pay out anything when they need to reduce numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the people doing the work, talk to the operators and supervisors and find out the truth about what's going on rather than finding issues and blaming everyone instead of who is directly involved. The company is a mess and its because you dont spend the time properly investigating the issues and realising it's not always an operator issue.

    I have been working at Valeo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting Technology will be interesting to see if it can deliver a system product or just demo to SOP

    Cons

    So call experts in senior management positions, openly promoting plagiarism and heros. No lessons learnt. Roles & Responsibilities ignored. Very poor R&D management team. Layered up with managers & directors. Time for a big clear out or get out.

    Advice to Management

    Complete overhaul needed especially in Tuam R&D Building 4
