Would never recommend to anyone with standards

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Livonia, MI

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

ProsNone. Company is so poorly run. Incredible that company is still surviving. However, competitors are catching up with their products and profits are down. Great place for program managers who have no true skills to get hired into high salaries.

ConsOverworked employees. Another review discussed in great detail how 12+ hour days are the norm. Each employee has workload of about 3 people. Working systems are ineffective- simply creates busy work. IT systems do not work either. There is no training and no consistency between people who share roles. Turnover is very high as employees soon realize the poor morale and poor working environment. It is the norm for teams to get into "survival mode" which is stabbing others in the back constantly. There is no encouragement to employees for growth and company as a whole is reactive rather than being progressive.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so selfish and look at the company's growth as a whole and recognize that true growth can only occur when the company invests in ALL employees. Not just upper level managers, VP etc. Mid level managers need to tell executives when their expectations are unrealistic. It's disgusting that the CEO makes millions annually yet hiring freezes are set and bonuses are not paid out to the employees who work 12+ hour days, 6-7 days per week.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A corporate cut throat mentality pervades the management structure.… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your people. Stop wasting money on bad ideas and ignoring the folks that make the place… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
