    I like my job security here. The company is doing well and doesn't seem to have layoffs. I have a new manager and he is making some good changes.

    Cons

    I would like to see more formal training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Offer general development opportunities and perhaps tuition assistance.

    Pros

    Great company for recent grads, PTO and health benefits are not that bad.. They also got friendly staff and CEO. And sadly, that's about it..

    Cons

    No growth
    Bad management, extremely rude
    Little to no team activities or company actives
    Low pay
    Work too hard for less
    Too many Chinese employees.. (not that I don't like working with them, it's just that the company hiring process is very bias).. Please hire other race
    No continuing of education
    People of high degree are stuck in entry level positions

    Advice to Management

    Respect your team and provide them proper training before you go bashing on them when they make mistakes

    ZT Systems is an exciting place to work. It has many elements of a start-up company - agility, speed, and leading-edge products - with 20+ years of experience and growth to provide a foundation for employees. The leadership team is focused on growing the company but at a pace that allows ZT to put its customers first providing them the flexibility and speed to market that allows them to be successful. Its a vibrant place to work and a place where you can feel that you make a DIFFERENCE each and every day...

    Continue to focus on relationships with suppliers, customers and employees like you do today. You make the difference at ZT Systems...

    Pros

    They have identified and broken into the right business niche at the right time. That's the only Positive about the company

    Cons

    Management has no clue on how to manage departments as most of the managers are promoted internally. They have no management skills, except the ability to speak cantonese, getting work done without communicating or motivating employees and keeping information discrete.

    There's no organizational structure. Title and designations are deceptive.

    Company lacks vision, direction and the only way they are surviving is by hiring people, rather than processes and procedures.

    Employees are numbers, not people for them. There are no skill building, team building activities and interaction is discouraged within various departments.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent.
    Hire skilled managers.

    Pros

    ZT is NOT a bad company, but it's also not for everybody. I think it varies between teams and departments. Business wise, the company is doing very well and there seems to be a very positive outlook for the future. CEO is a very friendly guy and will always acknowledge you when crossing paths. There are a lot of talented employees here who are hard-working and good at what they do. If you work hard, do well, and are loyal to the company, it will not go unnoticed (in my experience). There seems to be a lot of growth happening to ZT and it's exciting to be a part of the journey.

    Cons

    Like a lot of the reviews have stated, the environment IS a little quiet. There is not a lot of cross-department communication, because some managers are afraid of over-sharing information. It is a very traditional type of office, the opposite of a start up culture. If you're looking for bean bag chairs in the lounges and weekly team building paintball outings, this is NOT the place for you. If you're looking for an opportunity to start your career working with a fast-growing technical company, you'll be fine here. It may not be the funnest place to work, but you will learn and get a bit of working experience. I think a lot of the negative reviews on here come from people who maybe expected a higher-energy type of office. ZT is a quiet, get-your-work-done type of environment, and you have to really understand that in order to not dread coming into work everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more... Some of them have great suggestions that could really make a positive impact.
