    I worked at ZF TRW full-time

    Pros

    This company was very performance oriented and a great training ground in good business practices. If you worked hard and did your job you could move up.

    Cons

    I don't know how much has changed. It was very budget and report oriented - lots of numbers and sometimes a bit micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to take time to listen to employees and explain what you are trying to do even when the decision is made from the top.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, flexible working schedule, my immediate management chain is great. I love that we work as a team but there are still areas to improve on

    Cons

    Still lacking communication from upper management, some of the details of the ZF assimilation was not communicated well this made it seem a bit secret/closed door type which was a bit disappointing from their initial kickoff of the purchase. Benefits such as healthcare is too expensive and sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Better the communication down. Ensure the lower level employees understand how their part plays into the bigger picture. Communication is key
