Pros

Lots of learning opportunities at T.R.W. H.Q.
People who are not good with others are either filtered out or left out of meetings by management
My supervisor was excellent
Employer flexibility with school

Cons

Low pay and declining health/401k benefits drove me to leave because my performance and responsibilities were severely out weighed compared to the market. TRW typically does not promote interns or entry level candidates to the standard market payed positions.

Advice to Management

Higher personnel performance might be achieved if long term entry level candidates or high performance interns are taking better positions and the average performance employees are eliminated. A semi-competitive environment may help motivate the other average employees have high performance.

There are too many managers and directors who don't want to progress past their position. I respect their experience, but stagnation and or under performance seems to be common place.

    Pros

    ***IN THE PAST*** - no more-
    -Great company when times were good.
    -Seemed to value the Employees as people
    -Was able to put the resources out there to pull off difficult tasks.

    Cons

    - VERY management heavy - could do with 1/2 the management and more people who actually get the job done.
    - Went outside for a Chief - when promoting from within was wiser - really SHOCKED the customer as well as the employee base in a very troubled time.
    - Cut the 20% bonus to 5% for former Kelsey-Hayes workers

    Advice to Management

    Pray for divine intervention as the ship continues to sink while you chop holes in the bottom of the ship to let the water out.....

  2. 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.

    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 Management

    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.
