    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot to do, and you get the chance to learn a lot. There are some very bright people who can teach a lot.

    Cons

    Bottom line is profit, so they will cut heads based on the numbers of the day, instead of any using any outlook to the future, and just re hire within 2 to 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Trust local engineers and don't rely on what people across an ocean say.

    Its the automotive business. Unlimited potential. Very fast paced.

    Poor upper management.5 production managers and 5 presidents in the last 4 years.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the area, clean environment, very little physical work, the equipment is becoming newer every day, greedy shareholders and CEO are on their way out, safest place I've ever worked.

    Cons

    Heath insurance is terrible, high deductibles, zero copays. Responsibilities are adding up but pay and people are not. Production software is overloaded and outdated. Training programs are sub par and entirely to complicated, fiefdom

    Advice to Management

    Let actual production operators in on the new hire selection process, continuous improvement is supposed to be a step forward not two back, move away from the dictator approach, aquire a personality and a sense of humor please
