    Good company.

    Co-Op (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsGood people, acceptable work environment.

    ConsTypical of large companies, there is a struggle between departments, conflicting agendas and miscommunications, and an inefficiency that comes with the "system".

    Very good company to work for who clearly understands Automotive OEMs.

    Leader (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsI have been able to work myself into different roles as there has been upward movement. Company is resolved to be number one in their market making the tough decisions along the way.

    ConsStaff in plants do not seem to have opportunities for training, i.e. (depends on the location).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top Management Lost in Their Own Agenda ($)

    Senior Staff (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsCompany has great employees and great unlocked potential. Highly skilled workforce. The working staff just need a better working working environment.

    ConsTop management watches numbers and does not think that employees are a resource. No trust of employees to do the right thing, Lots of checks and balances that are insulting to the professionals that work for TRW. It used to be a great place to work. Stock price is up but not sustainable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit, move on, take your spoils and move on. Let the company prosper with proper non bean counting management. The CEO and top staff is over compensated taking value from share holders and employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent Management Team Driven to Suceed and deliver results

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsHighly talented and driven senior management team, focused on the right metrics and cares about achieving them. Wants to win, and wants employeees to be winners

    ConsA little too political at times. CEO makes a salary a little to high in comaprison to the rank and file.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare a little more with the lower ranks, QIP bonus pool neds to include more rank and file to get better results, limiting the pool only hurts in the long run

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    TRW Automotive - a fair place to work with minor issues.

    Senior Product Engineer (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

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

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementDrop 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....

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
