A great company gone bad.

I worked at Zend Technologies

ProsI worked with some great people at Zend and worked on some very interesting projects. They really do have a core of good people distributed throughout the company.

ConsUnfortunately, almost all of the interesting people I worked with were not in upper management. There was a ceiling, above which you had to be hired in and you have to be known by one of the VC companies that control the board. This means that there is rarely an infusion of new ideas into the C/VP level, it's just more of the same that you see at every start up.

Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate, decide what you want to do, spend more time developing products people want instead of letting marketing decide what products need to be released. Also, understand that no matter what your deadline is, the programmers there have a right to a life. You don't have the right to demand more than 40 hours from any employee, regardless of how important the project is to the company's well being.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
