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.

    I worked at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    The people that I provided customer service to at the different TRW locations were great to work for. As well as there were a lot of team members at my location that cared about their work. There is alot that you can learn on this job and take with you for your own personal career advacement.

    Cons

    Workload is too much for the number of employees due to today's economy and down sizing. There is a lack of recognition for employees with no degree who have been doing the job well for many years for less pay. Promotion or advacement within the company only exists for an elite few so many good people are walking and taking their knowledge with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate Headquarters needs to take a look at the TRW as a whole and the current Management and how things are being run and if it makes proper business sense for the future of the company. TRW also needs to respect employees & reward them for a good job.

    I have been working at TRW Automotive

    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
