    Former Accountant at NASSC located in Valley View, OH

    Accountant (Former Employee) Valley View, OH

    ProsGreat teamwork and you can gain a significant amount of knowledge from this job which will help with your future career.

    ConsManagement, management, management. Did I mention management? You will not be treated with any amount of respect or dignity from the current management team and you will definitely not be recognized for your hard work. The culture at TRW is the most negative that I have seen and it's readily apparent that the staff are unhappy with the way they are treated by management. There is a lot of finger pointing by management and they take no responsibility for anything. TRW is a terrible place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit humming, get over yourself, and learn to respect someone other than yourself. It might also help to take the time to attempt to learn about the area(s) that you are managing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great opportunity!

    Senior Engineering Manager (Former Employee) Livonia, MI

    ProsBig company with many career opportunities. The company span numerous product offerings across the automotive industry. Employment at TRW also includes extensive training and development opportunities. TRW is global company with multicultural opportunities to help expand your career. The company also offers great benefits.

    ConsDuring the time I was with the company there was a constant turn over of company management. The work life balance was not a priority at TRW. The automotive industry has turned into a 24/7 industry.
