    I worked at ZF Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have nothing to this.

    Cons

    In the Finance area if you are person who likes winging things and is happy with no processes this is the place for you. Make sure you speak German though. The Engineering management is not interested in any financial controls or providing feedback for reporting. They are however quick to make Finance accountable for all issues.

    Advice to Management

    more transparency would help you make better decisions.

    Pros

    Encourage employees to take time off and good work life balance

    Cons

    Can't think of much the company could improve. My drive is a little longer and traffic is heavy but not much the company can do about that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and being considerate to your employees.

    Pros

    - Management support
    - Great team members ; feels like a family

    - It's a German company, so rigorous (and superfluous) documentation is required

    Pros

    Great pay and its air conditioned.

    Cons

    7 days a week 8+hours a day. You'll never get to spend time with your kids or family. Training is terrible and they will lie to you constantly about giving you a day off. This is how the Rogersville Tennessee plant is.

    Get rid of the GREED. And rememeber these employees are people, not slaves or robots.
