    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Potential of working with new products and markets
    Highly qualified and talented colleagues
    Great Location to work in

    Cons

    Lacking leadership
    Non existent HR support for employees
    Disorganized top management
    Lack of unified direction from Germany
    Sub standard working conditions

    Advice to Management

    Improve HR, the current standard to employee treatment are one of the reasons for a high turnover rate
    Retain qualified employees by opening up promotion to employees outside Germany
    Hire based on qualifications not purely references
    Improve working conditions - offices where it rains inside during a storm outside is not a the least bit encouraging

    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.

    "machine operator"

    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.
