I have been working at The Zappos Family

Pros

I knew Zappos was the place for me when at the 3rd week of training, they made me the offer to quit the company or take 3k with no questions asked and it took me less than 1 microsecond to answer back NO.
Great working environment, Leadership really cares about employees, their well being and development, there are well established plans of growth for the company and for the employees.
You can actually talk to any senior level execs at any time if you have comments, suggestions or even complaints, they will listen and actually take action.
Health benefits have no comparison, you don't have any out of pocket expense.
Real discounts for buying merchandise at Zappos.
Happy hours, social events, sport events, parties, out of office outings and anything you can think of is a daily happening at Zappos.
Basically it is the kind of Job where you can really say,"I can not believe I get paid to have fun and make friends while actually doing something that I love"
You work with real People!

Cons

The only think that I don't like is that we are constrained in office space

    I have been working at The Zappos Family

    Pros

    it's a great place to work. they treat everyone with respect and fairness.

    Cons

    The only downside so far, and this is only a downside to some people, but the work environment is chaotic at times. Random dart gun wars coupled with random parades happening all the time means you have to know how to ignore distractions and focus on your work when a deadline looms. I've been able to adjust well, but some people wouldn't fit in well with that kind of culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Is it a revolution in business managment? I hope so and will do what i can to push it forward.

    I worked at The Zappos Family

    Pros

    - friendly, fun and casual work atmosphere
    - phenomenal benefits package (fully paid by the company)
    - great employee discount
    - opportunities to get involved in different functions and areas within the company
    - optional skill-enhancement classes offered to all employees - (accounting, excel, powerpoint, etc)

    Cons

    - high-interrupt work environment
    - many changes executed rapidly without much forethought or planning
    - long hours
    - partying (drinking) with co-workers is not mandatory but expected nonetheless
    - a lot of those hired into top positions are there because they are CEO's friends not due to competence
    - average age of employee skews young (median age 31ish)
    - easy to disregard a potentially well-qualified employee due to "lack of culture fit"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    company needs to grow up- in terms of structure, policies and overall demeanor. Generally employees are happy but some are terrified to state their true feelings due to being targeted as "anti-Zappos culture"
