  1. "machine operator"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Machine Operator in Marshall, IL
    Current Employee - Machine Operator in Marshall, IL

    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, laid back people, very enjoyable mostly, good insurance.

    Cons

    No to very little work and very little overtime. Wages are kinda low. The company can't keep parts coming in. Not a day goes by that we don;t run out of parts.

    Advice to Management

    They need to clean house on the current management and hire someone who can really get this place going again. They also need to find suppliers to keep parts coming in on time so they don't lose customers or find someplace to make their own parts that they run out of often.

    Pros

    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.

    Be more organized and plan better . Put more experienced managers into place.

    Former Employee - Electrical Engineer in Solihull, England (UK)

    I worked at ZF TRW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of experienced engineers around (15 yrs+ is not uncommon), a good pool of project, procedures and lesson learned. Unfortunately, most of the times that voice of experience is not followed. Things might have changed already under ZF, but all mergers take time.

    Cons

    Too many crises around with escalations and interventions from managers in engineering day-to-day activity which is an inhibitor for innovation and good practice.

    Advice to Management

    Although the "crisis" creates a challenging environment on which some actually flourish, but when it happens too often (and whilst I was there it did), it can become very frustrating and chase good engineers away: not everybody can cope to this environment

    I worked at ZF TRW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people and great things to learn. Work hard and party harder. And there is enjoyment in owning the responsibility. It is good.

    Cons

    Nothing that stands out. Schedule flexibility can be helpful. But some might misuse it. So everything is fine.

    Advice to Management

    They are good. And very good to employees.
