    Pros

    Truly believes in the talent that each employees possesses. If you're a hard worker, they'll see it & challenge you to improve yourself, your career & experience at TRW. My team(s) are great - all are working towards a similar goal & are able to contribute when needed. Personalities are mixed which make the work atmosphere fun and different each day. TRW really does want to make a change in some areas and encourages employees to help with that.

    Cons

    The typical "big company/ corporate environment" can be felt at times. At times some people feel restricted. Easy to combat though with stepping up.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say be different, be bold. Try to get away from the "well this is how it has always been" type of work life. Attract new talent to bring new personalities, new ideas, new creativity to TRW.

    Pros

    Great range of product and in general very good people with talent and comittment, ground level folks including mid managers are in the main very sound.

    Cons

    Highly political, lots of in fighting CEO is hire and fire has poor relationship with his key team. HR lead some silly initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your greatest asset and you have lost large numbers of people that were once loyal, the problem starts with the CEO ... a genius but has no people skills and micromanages and drives infighting and insecurity. It could be a better company, even a great company and generate even more profits. That said is still has some tremendous people - it needs to keep them.

  9. In 25 years of quality automotive experience, TRW is the worst customer focused ever. Quality is random.
