    I worked at ZF TRW full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefit. Good job security. Never fire bad employees.

    Cons

    Useless management, lack of communication. Sometime got a task that was due yersterday. Half employees are goofing off while the other half were overwhelmed. Promotion is based on how long you stay not how good you are.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your good employees and do not overwhelm them with others' work. Punish your bad employees who goof off. Otherwise only the mediocre will stay.

    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.
