    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time

    Pros

    Nice new building, decent pay and some decent benefits, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are terrible, must be politically motivated to advance, an entrenched bureaucracy environment, engineering predominantly driven out of Europe, high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    You are advancing the wrong people for the wrong reasons. Engineering is by design and done by engineers and not by management committee or by dictators with the power to force things through.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ZF TRW.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews before going on-site for a face-to-face interview. The first interview was with the HR manager, very sweet woman. The second phone interview was with two managers. The face-to-face interview was not much of an interview, but more of a tour of the plant.
