    It was a little far from my home and took an hour to get there.

    Continue the same.

    I worked at ZF TRW as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    TRW is a successful, very well organized company. I learned a great amount from my supervisors and team members.

    Cons

    There any TRW locations in Colorado Springs, so I unfortunately can't work there anymore. If they built a plant here I would apply in a heartbeat!

    I worked at ZF TRW full-time

    Pros

    The work was very intellectually challenging. I worked with very intelligent people who were great collaborators. The bonuses were very generous, and I had a short commute.

    Cons

    Oftentimes, I worked very long hours. I had to be to work before 6am to attend meetings with my Chinese colleagues, and I typically didn't leave before 8pm, sometimes working until 1am.

    Pros

    - Great place to work at. of course, it differs from one person to another; however, the combination of engineer's personality and the supervisor makes a difference in judgment. - A lot of knowledgeable people - Great growth potential

    Cons

    Electrical core team is overseas

    Advice to Management

    Great management! (at least the ones I got to work with)

    Pros

    Good pay, good management in my experience and an overall nice place to work. Competitive vacation and 401k match.

    Cons

    Health insurance could be better, but this may change with the recent ZF merger. Facilities need a bit of an update along with some.of the equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Management has always been good in my experience. From supervisors to directors, these people have always been willing to help and provide direction when needed.

    Pros

    Truly believes in the talent that each employees possesses. If you're a hard worker, they'll see it & challenge you to improve yourself, your career & experience at TRW. My team(s) are great - all are working towards a similar goal & are able to contribute when needed. Personalities are mixed which make the work atmosphere fun and different each day. TRW really does want to make a change in some areas and encourages employees to help with that.

    Cons

    The typical "big company/ corporate environment" can be felt at times. At times some people feel restricted. Easy to combat though with stepping up.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say be different, be bold. Try to get away from the "well this is how it has always been" type of work life. Attract new talent to bring new personalities, new ideas, new creativity to TRW.
