    I worked at ZF Group NAO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure to all different parts of car since ZF supplies basically all parts that go into a car, except an engine. Good learning opportunity about German engineering.

    Cons

    Lots of work is designed to require approval from its German headquarter, which sometimes become a hurdle or slows down the work.

    I have been working at ZF Group NAO full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Managers know what they're doing.
    Training is quite good. Each business unit, while separate, communicates and works quite well together. The work itself might not be so thrilling, but the people are great to work with.
    Compensation is generally quite good.

    Cons

    Not much room to negotiate with vacation days.
    Bonuses are generally only tax-deffered 401k contributions. While nice, it's sometimes preferable to have cash in your pocket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the HR department. Not very responsive.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great.
    Internal communication is informal.
    Unlimited access to capital if you work for the right division (AT)

    Cons

    Decision making process is very slow and frustrating. EVERYTHING needs approval from Germany.
    Tons of useless reporting.
    Upper management deals with little problems instead of focusing on the big picture.
    No room for growth (unless you work in Germany).
    Too many people hired in Germany.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some changes before it is too late. Time is money!
