    I have been working at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    - A lot of product innovation ,market is quickly changing.
    - Friendly atmosphere
    - A lot of freedom to get the job done

    Cons

    - Capital expenditure kept to a minimum. Don't forget, the company is owned by a private equity firm ...
    - Very old infrastructure, limited access to resources, packed offices, everything looks so cheap
    - Benefits way below average, health cost incredibly high to workers.
    - Don't expect the lower management to help you plan your career, they are job is first to reduce the costs.
    - The job is disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stand up, "Reducing the costs" cannot be the one and only company driver. Have the courage to say stop: we don't need 4 signatures for any travel approval or for any penny we spent on capital investment! This is a waste of your time and ultimately can cost more to the company.
    - Even for product development, don't try to "reduce the costs" for any single program independently, guys, it is time to look at the global picture, you are upsetting the customers!
