In general, there are many contrasts for me. For example, I feel the work environment is not as strict as in Germany, but on the other hand, you spend much more time at the office and on the way to get there and returning. In Germany, especially at ZF, plants are in very small cities. So normally, it takes only a ten minute bike ride to get to work, but here it takes from one up to two hours.
Besides work, it was very interesting to see similarities with Ecuador and Spain. For example, you can see the strong influence Spaniards had on Mexican food. That was very interesting, nevertheless there are a lot of things you only find in Mexico and it is always nice to experience or get to know those things.
Culture-wise, I would say people here are very open-minded. Already on the first day a lot of colleagues came and offered help and support. I never felt lost or left alone here.
