    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They focus on quality and that is very important. The staff is fairly well trained and most people do what they're supposed to.

    Cons

    The managers are stationary. There is not a lot of Movement from managers so engineers who want to become managers have no chance internally. That will eventually be when I move out. I see no chance in improving my position outside of moving sideways.

    Advice to Management

    Hire internally more. Focus on being more attentive to your engineers and give them a chance to move up within the company. Many people feel stuck in their roles.
