    I have been working at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    Solid company with forward thinking (mostly). Flexable hours (pending your boss). Good location, minimal traffic. Employees are easy going with minimal issues.

    Cons

    Not a career place. There is a log jam for any advancement. Over the past 3 years, there have been consistent layoffs - minimal raises (if any) - benefits are slowly shrinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the do as I say not as I do philosphy. No bonuses for us, no bonuses for you. No pay raise for us, no pay raise for you....

    I worked at TRW Automotive

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
