    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers, management, flexible work schedules

    Cons

    HR, HR, HR. Hires their friends and friends kids. Everything is about politics and HR is king which is going to drive the morale into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Get new HR in office with a better attitude. Understand the importance of not hiring all of your high school friends like HR does. Make it a workplace and eliminate politics

    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with and very down to earth. Very busy all the time, so never boring.

    Cons

    Medical plan has a very high deductible ($3600 out of pocket deductible for a family before insurance pays anything).
    Staffing is insufficient to be proactive with new programs. Always fighting fires.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who is working hard and who's not. Take action with the 2-3 employees that feel they only need to work 4 hours a day while the rest are working 10 -12.

  3. "Its a job"

    I have been working at ZF TRW as a contractor

    Pros

    Good place to work if you show up everyday.

    Cons

    There is a reason why its fairly easy to find work as a temp and this company is no different. Temporary employees that want to get hired in work the hardest and get treated like robots.

    As much overtime as you could want. Allot of experienced operators with 20 + years of experience. Some very intelligent management that you can learn from.
