    Pros

    Good school for professional development.

    Cons

    To much politics. All promotions are based on recommendation / special interest

    Advice to Management

    Get you act together. Do what you said you stand for. Start promoting the right persons and the company profit will increase big time

  3. Mediocre company for mediocre employees

    Pros

    Very little I can think of. Work that lasts sharp 8 hours including 30 mins break. Very good for mediocre, middle-aged engineers. Good as a very first job (1 - 2 years) or when you are in real need of any employment. In Polish market, you can really find better (money, salary, etc.).

    Cons

    Open space. Constant fights between employees including abusive behaviours. Managers are figureheads and the real purpose of the place is company internal outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about people less about shareholders.

    Pros

    Pay was at or slightly above industry standards.

    Cons

    Poor communication. Excessive work hour demands, working 80 hours per week at times. Seemed like the more you did, the more they expected. Poor morale within the company. Not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on communication with employees. Work on improving employee morale. A happy employee is a productive employee.

    Improve the heath coverage.

    Pros

    The people are great for the most part.

    Lots of career opportunities.

    Cons

    The management from one shift to another and even within the same shift don't communicate.

    The most understaffed plant in Body Control System yet we make the most profit.

    Cannot get enough support people like Electric Techs, Maintenance, and Material Handlers. Also 2 and 3 shift need Engineers but all we get from Management, "No Engineers will accept 2 shift."

    I've worked Assemble and Auto Insert Operator and I've seen that AIO's are given no respect by management. We are forced to work 50+ hours each week and expected to keep up with General Assemble of 300+ people with only 10+ AIO's on 2nd, 3rd has 10+ openings because no one wants to work that shift, and 1st has 15+ AIO's and twice as many assemble? It's ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better between Supervisor and Upper Management. Maybe have some of the paper pushers actually see what it takes to run the floor. New manager wanted to change established things set down in our union contract like forcing mandatory 12 hour days.

    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.
