I have been working at ZocDoc full-time for more than a year

Pros

The SoHo office is gorgeous. Lunches are catered daily. The office is full of a diverse set of super-interesting and super-smart people working on a wide range of interesting and varied projects. Hackathons are fun with swimming, sports, and team fortress 2 as well as do-something-awesome coding projects.

Cons

Extremely stressful work environment with frequent fire-fighting and aggressive deadlines. Management can be very stubborn and will bring a lot of ego to office. Codebase has some extremely poor infrastructure, but it is improving rapidly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect your employees' work/life balance. Bring less ego to the office. Give your employees more stake in the company.

    Pros

    Free lunch (not a lot of variety, though). Free happy hour on Fridays (and sometimes Mondays-Thursdays), CEO takes staff who work late out for drinks, food, etc. Option to expense cab rides home when you work past 8pm. (Lots of people took advantage of this, though.)
    Drank more here in a month than throughout college.

    Cons

    Feeling like you might get fired every day.
    Turning everything including people into a quota.
    Pompus, entitled attitudes of some managers and senior management.
    Relying on numbers and money rather than integrity and work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less booze, more personal interaction with people, doctors, etc.
    Recognize that some of the people there are wonderful, dedicated employees by looking at more than numbers. Reward and promote those people too.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits (free medical, dental and vision), free lunch everyday, amazing leadership, great office, 401k and great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Working here you have to be ready for a face paced work day. There are always curveballs thrown our way, but its standard in any startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to believe in your core values and treat your employees the way we do. It is a work hard, play hard mentality and everyone has a say.
