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

    Pros

    Good employer, looks after your health

    Cons

    Being an American Automotive firm will always mean a meagre salary, fewer benefits and the sound of constant whingeing from people who have been there a long time (fewer benefits, no pay rises, loss of perks, moral etc)

    Advice to Management

    Fewer meetings and more decision making!
