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.

    Pros

    It pays the bills. Some good connections made over the years. If your in the "click" your good to go.

    Cons

    You must be in the "click" to get promoted. Recognition no longer exists, a slice of a $5 pizza doesn't show much senior support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pull your head out of your a**, treat people as if they truly have value to you and your dept

    Pros

    Good working enviornment, Management flexible for time-off, Quality engineering exposure, exposure to work with good talent around, good 401K match - 6%

    Cons

    Not very good insurance - if you spouse is working, you pay high fee to add her, base salary is okay - not higher than industry average ( negotiate at the time of offer)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better bonus to the lower level - More profit sharing required. Work environment is good. Better salary structure required.
