    I have been working at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    People here are friend and very willing to help.
    Smart people are in surplus here.
    Good benefits at full hire.
    Management is helpful and gives great direction and encouragement.

    Cons

    Automotive industry is volatile, when GM/Ford/Chrysler are doing well, TRW does well.
    There isn't much to do locally here in Livonia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, encouragement and praise for good work is just as important as pointing out areas where improvement is needed. Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    The products are interesting and the equipment is high end,

    Cons

    Poor benifits, high end of cost of living increase is 3% (neg with benifit increase) Low bonus during record profits (2% average). Facility is deplorable & dirty. extremly high number of contract foreign workers with poor english and no work experience. Minimal & discouraging growth within the company. Poor training, improper staffing for programs, long hours, senior managment does not provide a clear path. constant push to use oversea's,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape on promoting within, stop bring foreign workers over with no experience unable to speak english, Stop waiting to see what other companies are doing before you make a decision or providing a benift to the internal workforce. Stop waiting for employee's to hand in notice to keep them. Do something about the facility and air quality. Provide a compeditive wage & benifits. Have a clear path to train new employee's.
