    I worked at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    - Excellent environment for learning
    - You get to 'get your hands dirty'

    Cons are mostly regarding career progression aspects:
    - No career plan

    I have been working at TRW Automotive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its the automotive business. Unlimited potential. Very fast paced.

    Cons

    Poor upper management.5 production managers and 5 presidents in the last 4 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to get the plant scheduled properly. Always blaming the manufacturing floor for not meeting the demand is not the answer.

    I have been working at TRW Automotive

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the area, clean environment, very little physical work, the equipment is becoming newer every day, greedy shareholders and CEO are on their way out, safest place I've ever worked.

    Cons

    Heath insurance is terrible, high deductibles, zero copays. Responsibilities are adding up but pay and people are not. Production software is overloaded and outdated. Training programs are sub par and entirely to complicated, fiefdom

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let actual production operators in on the new hire selection process, continuous improvement is supposed to be a step forward not two back, move away from the dictator approach, aquire a personality and a sense of humor please
