    I worked at ZestFinance full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible work schedule, lots of new technology. Also a great IT setup with your own new computer of choice and the freedom to configure as you like.

    Cons

    Too much politics for a small company. Management surrounds themselves with old friends and does not listen to anyone else. Benefits unbalanced with nice perks like free lunch & gym membership but stingy retirement and health plans. Projects, employees and development environment are changing all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and try to build a more stable work environment.
