I worked at TRW Automotive full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Big company with many career opportunities. The company span numerous product offerings across the automotive industry. Employment at TRW also includes extensive training and development opportunities. TRW is global company with multicultural opportunities to help expand your career. The company also offers great benefits.

Cons

During the time I was with the company there was a constant turn over of company management. The work life balance was not a priority at TRW. The automotive industry has turned into a 24/7 industry.

    I worked at TRW Automotive as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Large company. Interesting projects. Managers are nice.

    Cons

    More than half the engineers are foreign contractors. Office is a windowless warehouse with dimmed lights and moldy cubicles. Everything is so gray and depressing. Maybe I have been spoiled by other companies but I am really glad I got out of this company. Poor compensation.

    I worked at TRW Automotive full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technology, challenging work
    Good people doing the work, but lack of leadership and vision above.

    Cons

    Too much misinformation in the job,
    organization/ locations are rivals, not there to help each other, fighting for control
    No direction, or bad directions from above.(do this, and then nevermind, do that, somebody else already did that, don't need that now, need this, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need strong leadership to control the organizations.
    Understand the strengths in teams in utilize them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
