Zinio is not the same company it was 6 months ago - the change and growth has been phenomenal!

Software Engineer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsThe Engineering organization rules at zinio. it's a very tech-centered culture where innovation is king. i started here last year and had some doubts based on the glassdoor reviews i read. those reviews may have been true at the time, but the environment today is really great. (I hired on at the end of 2011). super smart people, capable leadership, a biz model that's going gangbusters. i can see a bright future here.

Conswell it's a startup, so there's some degree of ambiguity. roles are getting more defined & the new organizational structure is still taking form. there are some key mgt positions still open, but as a development team member, i get to interview my new perspective bosses, so i'm okay with that.

Advice to Senior Managementdon't be afraid to share all the great strides that the company is making. you don't talk about an IPO but i know we're gonna be profitable this year. so let's hear more about that.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
