"I've been working for ZF since 2018. I love the role at ZF but have been facing issues with management ever since there has been a change. The headquarters is located in Germany and there is a disconnect between Germany and the US in management. Overall I have a good experience in terms of learning new skills."

"Worked at this company when it was called TRW back in 2012. A lot has changed since then the company was a high volume steering assembly plant. It seems though ever since ZF has taken over the production of steering assemblies has fallen and they’ve started to lay off most of there employees with less than 25 years. It was a great place to work, but it feels like it’s a dying flower slowly losing its petals."
