    I worked at ZAP full-time

    Pros

    A few of the people at ZAP WERE wonderfully talented and well intentioned.

    Cons

    The company was run by crooks who only cared about day trading their stock. Therefore, the company didn't follow any traditional business rules regarding product quality, customer service, etc. It was a nightmare!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the company.

    I have been working at ZAP

    Pros

    Well, it's certainly better than working at McDonald's, that's for sure.
    Expect to get paid pretty decently if you're in sales/marketing.

    Cons

    Management isn't consistent.
    Company focuses more on public relations and keeping stock prices up, vs. providing a quality product.
    Management is very inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on company development rather than stuffing your pocketbooks.
    Pay your employees what they're actually worth, rather than taking advantage of them.
