    I worked at ZF TRW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company with many career opportunities. The company span numerous product offerings across the automotive industry. Employment at TRW also includes extensive training and development opportunities. TRW is global company with multicultural opportunities to help expand your career. The company also offers great benefits.

    Cons

    During the time I was with the company there was a constant turn over of company management. The work life balance was not a priority at TRW. The automotive industry has turned into a 24/7 industry.
