Let me share my interesting experience with this company. It started as a good experience, then few months passed, you see the management's true colors. They only prioritize some departments and employees. You have to be good at their political game. I have grown to resent and to be bitter about the management. You tell them what you need and what needs to be improved and they tell you that you are just complaining. They give you a description of your job but they make you do mindless jobs that are not even in your field. In my opinion, they just need a physical body of a person to do the tasks that's needed to be done. They do not want to listen to your suggestions because they do not want change. They hire people that are not capable of their jobs. They do not even do background checks. It's so easy to lie in your resume. Wrong people get promoted. HR only cares about the company's image, they do not care about you, so beware of them. People here are so unorganized. On top of all that, you are not paid enough, it's even below average. Sometimes, it boggles my mind why is this company still operating? I guarantee you a few years from now, this will all go down in the drain.

Prepare to go back in time. The company is stuck in the 90's in every way. They place no value in data, run everything on paper, and the average age of employees is quite high, which shows throughout the organization (especially in IT & Management). HR inserts themselves into every event, "toning" things down and preventing anything new or different.
The entire company has no interest in change or efficiency, and though they throw around the terms "innovative" and "agile" they 100% do not mean it, and instead, you're punished for speaking up.

On top of all this, the compensation is well below market value, and the benefits are poor/minimal.

Still very much a catty, high school like vibe. Be careful who you talk to.
Pros
Employees are generally friendly, office is casual
Cons
Terrible pay, poor management

All the staff at the event were great. I was the photographer at the company's Christmas party, and I was treated great. Really fun party to cover, and I would shoot for ZTR again.

ZTR is a great innovative company for new grads. There a lot of opportunities for growth and self-development. It had a good potential to improve culture and the environment.

Just like dating, finding the right employer can be very a difficult process. There aren't really any horrible employers/employees; more so a potential poor match.

As an intermediate to senior engineer, i now know what works for me and what doesn't. Though ztr has a lot of potential and good energy, they also have to realize that the (senior) people they hire potentially have more/better experience and ideas. But unfortunately, the politics is just a little too thick and the pecking order a little too overt. The company is not as open-minded and well managed as they would like you to believe. And there are also some sticking points in the managerial level... ie people who occupy a position that is far beyond their competency and qualification.


But hey, different strokes for different folks. I've served an average of 5 years in any given company, buy i had to quit this one within a matter of months. If I were a fresh grad, maybe things would've been different. But, it's always good to try things before you knock them.
Pros
Loyalty to employees, small company feel
Cons
Misallocation of skill sets, over-promoted manager(s), overly political, unnecessarily chaotic
