    Pros

    Good work life balance

    Cons

    No management. Workplace is extremely outdated and a lot of older people counting down their days until retirement. Most managers are managers due to seniority but aren’t much of leaders.

    I have been working at ZF Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employee-oriented, benefits, software/databases, opportunity to advance

    Cons

    Management slow to respond, procedures constantly changing, no overtime/extremely limited overtime, heavy workload

    Advice to Management

    Please stop worrying about stepping on toes and do what is best for the company and the employees as a whole. Too many times a few specialists have a much lower workload than the rest because the company doesn't want to lose a headcount, but the rest of the team is greatly suffering. Stop pushing concerns aside, sit and listen. Most importantly, never tell your employees that they cannot ask you questions. That's your job.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at ZF Group full-time

    Pros

    Autosar based projects are there.
    Since there is no much competency build up, work is more.

    Cons

    Due to managers highly demotivation.

    There is no global and multinational standards for MANGERS approach towards to employee..

    Even though work is good bcz of Mangers approach towards only status, you wont feel like work for organization.

    Mangers are work for credability.. Not for organization growth.

    There is no Automotive Or product based company Environment.

    Not best place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to bring positive Mangers, who has good Automotive product based and multi location work experience who can see the longterm growth for organization.

    Pros

    If you show initiative you can learn a lot of skills if you pursue it.

    Cons

    1 year requirement before you can sign up for advanced classes

    Advice to Management

    I feel like feed back from employees is not valued as much as it should be. They work that job everyday so their perception should be valued more.
