Pros

Solid company with forward thinking (mostly). Flexable hours (pending your boss). Good location, minimal traffic. Employees are easy going with minimal issues.

Cons

Not a career place. There is a log jam for any advancement. Over the past 3 years, there have been consistent layoffs - minimal raises (if any) - benefits are slowly shrinking.

Advice to Management

Drop the do as I say not as I do philosphy. No bonuses for us, no bonuses for you. No pay raise for us, no pay raise for you....

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    ***IN THE PAST*** - no more-
    -Great company when times were good.
    -Seemed to value the Employees as people
    -Was able to put the resources out there to pull off difficult tasks.

    Cons

    - VERY management heavy - could do with 1/2 the management and more people who actually get the job done.
    - Went outside for a Chief - when promoting from within was wiser - really SHOCKED the customer as well as the employee base in a very troubled time.
    - Cut the 20% bonus to 5% for former Kelsey-Hayes workers

    Advice to Management

    Pray for divine intervention as the ship continues to sink while you chop holes in the bottom of the ship to let the water out.....

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good management. People are friendly and the work atmosphere is casual. This allows you to get work done and still enjoy your co-workers in a relaxed but professional environment. TRW also allows for room to progress in your career. Further, management works closely with workers to discuss future goals for career growth.

    Cons

    TRW is at the mercy of the automakers, therefore, TRW does bad when GM, Ford, Chrysler, namely, are not doing well. The automotive field in general is not very stable.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management does a good job in my opinion, however, some more transparency in the direction of the company would be appreciated.
