I have been working at TRW Automotive

Pros

Large Auto supplier, with the up-swing in the automotive industry it's becoming a more stable place to work. Seems that there is upward mobility within funtions, many promotions are done within.

Cons

Largest round of layoffs in TRW history in 2008-2009 caused much animosity among employees (current and those that were let go). Not a very employee friendly environment - due in part to the industry itself but mostly driven by top leadership and a numbers driven philosophy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on employee development for those NOT in current leadership positions, encouraging employees to attend training programs and further their learning will certainly create more buy-in.

    Pros

    It's close to home for me.

    Cons

    Management has it's collective head up it's ass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If TRW expects floor empoyee's and salaried to make concessions then John Plant should seriously consider relinquishing about 95% of his grotesque $19 Million dollar "compensation package".
