Pros

Culture, the people are amazing both customers and team members.

There is a since of entitlement within CLT that makes managing very difficult. People tend to act very phony when they are not culture fits.

    Great starting point for enterprise development, but quickly slid into a downtown project

    I have been working at The Zappos Family full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Generally lots of really smart people who are happy to help you grow technically.
    - Attempts to make sure employees are happy.
    - If you're on the right team, it can feel more like family than work.
    - Lots of opportunities to learn enterprise level software development and dig in to code base.

    Cons

    - Bureaucracy tends to take a small, lean project and over complicates it, which oftentimes leads to it never being completed.
    - Sometimes the core value of "embrace and drive change" is used as a trump card for having to deal with changes that don't feel completely thought out.
    - The perks that were raved about 2 years ago were a lot better for the employees than they are today.
    - Work/life balance is encouraged, but since the move downtown, there is sometimes a sense that "if you're not getting involved in downtown initiatives outside of work, you're not really on the inside".
    - Growth within the company doesn't feel like it's based on merit/performance as much as time and involvement in the downtown initiatives.
