    I have been working at ZF TRW full-time

    Pros

    New products and customers coming on board. Chance to travel.

    Cons

    Always a sense of urgency. Lots of finger pointing, always need someone to blame. A meeting for a meeting mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Look to utilize the skills and knowledge of those in the organization. Don't handcuff those who see the future or an endgame in a different light.

    I have been working at ZF TRW as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work experience to learn various internal management systems for quality and production. For me it was also a revelation of dealing with offshore suppliers and developing them to produce and maintain high quality components.

    Cons

    Shareholder value undermines value of non-management employees. Minimal investment in developing talent for contract employees - arrive with it or develop it on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Employees make a company - good ones are hard to find. If you have them - treat them to keep them. This is a comment on the many people leaving the company during the time I worked there for two years from 2011- 2013.
