    Pros

    TRW is more than willing to adjust processes and procedures to improve functionality and ease of getting the job done. Goals are clear and concise. Regular employe reviews

    Cons

    The company will work you till you are too burned out to function well then most leave. High turnover. Employees are viewed as replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce your excessively high bonuses and spread some of the profit to those that worked their tails off to make the company profitable.

    Pros

    A good place to start if you're unexperienced and don't know any better. Stay for a while, build your resume and take their money while you look for a company to develop your future with.

    Cons

    Very poor experience. Very amateurish management that pushes responsibility to the lowest level and then places blame. Very little to learn here, career-wise, and a complete waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    An incredible amount of total ignorance mixed with unwarranted arrogance combine to make a culture where one is constantly guaranteed to fail.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, Management is now getting divided due to merger, Company is somewhat transparent about the changes going on. Competitive salary

    Cons

    Health care is a joke, High premiums and low coverage. Many people are stuck in the same position that they were hired in for. Communication could be much better, training is not very good either. You need to learn from other employee's

    Advice to Management

    Have better training and communication to all levels of workers.

    Pros

    Some pretty good co-workers that will help train , air conditioning ,breaks,free bottled water. They have decent insurance but it's expensive, but I guess it is everywhere.

    Cons

    Pretty rough environment, you have to start at the bottom of the seniority list, which means you end up on an off shift and getting the hardest jobs. It's a 2 tier pay level so you will work with someone doing the same job making $6 to $10 less.They start at around $10 or less. When they get busy they want you to live there practically

    Advice to Management

    Quit contracting all the work out and loosing controll of your quality. Level the pay scale and get rid of the 2 tier system. Hire better qualified experienced people and pay them better and quit going through so many new hires.
