    I worked at ZF TRW full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A few nice people scattered about.

    Cons

    ZF TRW Global Body Controls Division has a real arrogant and condescending leadership structure starting at the top down through the top level of sales.
    Lack of technology, and vision from top management, who believe they are brilliant and clever, but in fact have done nothing to secure the future of the company.
    No respect for the customer, as they are only focused on short term gains and not long term partnerships. They are an anchor to ZF TRW. Just do a google search and you will find out all you need to know about this division.
    The work/life balance....not here!! Keep looking!!

    Advice to Management

    Your reputation follows you, and word travels fast. I would suggest you take some personality classes. Respect your employees lives, even though you may think work is better than having a family.

    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting product line with a mix of driver interface switches and devices, global business with sites in North America, Europe, South America, and China.

    Cons

    BCS is driven only by financial numbers and a ruthless desire to put profit ahead of people. The management team will not add the needed resources, so many people are working 10-12 + hour days on a regular basis and still falling farther and farther behind. BCS posted record profits in 2016 - the highest of any division in ZF -, but resources are not added and employees are not rewarded for their contributions. Only a small percentage are awarded the performance ratings needed to get the highest raises and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people and reward the ones you have that are contributing. Recognize that it's the people that are helping to achieve the profits.
