left over staff deserves to work for a year at 32 hours if they have worked a year at over 48. Stop the cutting back.

I have been working at TRW Automotive

Pros

Flexibility, Location, learning opportunity, and people

Cons

Pay is lower than other peers in area at other companies and Automotive is currently unstable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of the poople taking care of you. If a plant is making money encourage it to make more but do not do that by cutting back. I understand 1 or 2 year wage freezing given the concern but with years of raises less than the cost of living it gets tough to give up more. Give real raises and bonuses based on realistic performance expectations and dont just give everyone (0 to 2)% those that give up homelife and work hard should get rewarded not the same as those that put in the minimum. The upper management needs to lead this through incentives because local management is doing its best to cut costs but may not be getting as much out of current workers as they could with properly structured incentives.

    Pros

    Good management. People are friendly and the work atmosphere is casual. This allows you to get work done and still enjoy your co-workers in a relaxed but professional environment. TRW also allows for room to progress in your career. Further, management works closely with workers to discuss future goals for career growth.

    Cons

    TRW is at the mercy of the automakers, therefore, TRW does bad when GM, Ford, Chrysler, namely, are not doing well. The automotive field in general is not very stable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management does a good job in my opinion, however, some more transparency in the direction of the company would be appreciated.

    Pros

    If you want to gain experience across many platforms, TRW is a great place to learn

    Cons

    No loyalty to long time employees. Changed severance policy in July 2008 2 days before layoffs to screw employee out of 13 weeks of salary. Cut older workers over 40 with higher pay and accrued vacation time. Outsources as many jobs as possible for accounting purposes to bolster earnings. They do not care about the employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just be honest and move the headquarters to Europe now instead of lying to Livonia employees. Also, outsource the senior managment and board of director positions, think of the millions that could be saved.
