    Cons

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

    Pros

    None! None! None! Slave drivers!

    Cons

    Union is weak, a lot of rats. Slave drivers! Pay is horrible! They make you work 19 days straight including holidays ie... Good Friday, Memorial Day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your employees like slaves.

    I worked at TRW Automotive full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work to learn how to develop global communication skills and manage overseas suppliers.

    Cons

    Recent downgrade in employee benefits has caused an exodus of employees over the past few years.
    Employee compensation (base salaries) could be better. Communication problems within the organization.

    I have been working at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    The long time employees remember when it was locally owned.

    Cons

    Leadership views long term employees as easily dismissed. This observation comes from seeing 20-40 year veteran engineers that cared deeply about the company & products being walked out like untrustworthy criminals.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Top 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 ManagementAdvice

    Quit, 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.

    Very Disappointing

    I have been working at TRW Automotive full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of capable people who are willing to work in a team environment. Being such a large company, they can afford to invest in innovative concepts.

    Cons

    Weak people-leadership from the very top ... creates atmosphere of mistrust, fear and inhibited creativity and problem solving....as well as fostering divisiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the CEO with one capable of inspiring the organization...not just breeding fear throughout it! The culture feels toxic and demoralizing........and caters to the lowest common denominator at the expense of the talented majority and ultimately, the organization as a whole!
