  1. "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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Cons

    Very disorganized projects. Very ignorant upper management. Finding out you will have to work overtime minutes before your shift was over.

    Advice to Management

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

    Good experience for new engineer.
    I never have to work over 40 hours.

    No training ever given
    Salary is not competitive

    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

    Pros

    Diverse Engineering Portfolio/Divisions within Company. Wonderful Colleagues to work with. Good Company match into 401k.

    Cons

    Base Pay is not that competitive compared to other top Supplier companies.
