    I have been working at TRW Automotive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall a good company to work. A pleasant working place with many talent people, nice diversity culture, dynamic environment, face challenge everyday...

    Cons

    Management is kind of chaos at this transition time, too profit driven, not sure what will happen next after join ZF...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better coordination between different departments, related teams need to talk to each other when doing the same project. Communication, communication, communication...

    I have been working at TRW Automotive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. They don't care when you come in, when you leave office, or work from home, as long as you get the jobs done. Almost no overtime work.
    Most people are easygoing and relaxed.
    Opportunities to move up the ladder due to relatively high turn-over rate.

    Cons

    Too much outsourcing. Outdated building.
    Always understaffed.
