    Pros

    People here are friend and very willing to help.
    Smart people are in surplus here.
    Good benefits at full hire.
    Management is helpful and gives great direction and encouragement.

    Cons

    Automotive industry is volatile, when GM/Ford/Chrysler are doing well, TRW does well.
    There isn't much to do locally here in Livonia.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, encouragement and praise for good work is just as important as pointing out areas where improvement is needed. Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Highly talented and driven senior management team, focused on the right metrics and cares about achieving them. Wants to win, and wants employeees to be winners

    Cons

    A little too political at times. CEO makes a salary a little to high in comaprison to the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Share a little more with the lower ranks, QIP bonus pool neds to include more rank and file to get better results, limiting the pool only hurts in the long run

    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    TRW is a large, global company. If you are looking for a place where you can learn, be challenged, and grow your career, this is the company to join. I have always been able to make a move/take on a new role when I was ready for a change. I have been able to maintain adequate work life balance.

    Cons

    TRW is very lean. Resources are not abundant and if you are a manager, you must be willing to roll up your sleeves and work - not just manage - not a con for me but is for some others.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more robust, global systems.

    Pros

    TRW allows me to work on projects where I am able to interact with all levels within the company. There has been plenty of career opportunities available as well. Hard working people who really care about what we do and the products we make.

    Cons

    TRW is a fast paced working environment and you have to be able to handle multiple tasks at one time. If you are unable to thrive in this type of environment, then this may not be a good fit

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest back into the company.

    Pros

    Good working environment that is small enough where you can have your center stage. Opportunities to learn various disciplines about the business side and the technical side.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be difficult depending on your job function and some weeks you will work more than 40 hours during crisis mode (nature of the business) Maybe tough to move up the ladder within this company but is a great stepping stone.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in updating your technology!
