    Bad work-life balance, high pressure to over-perform, and awful politics.

    I worked at Zonar Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Used lots of technologies and was responsible for production services throughout the SDLC from development > testing > prod.

    Cons

    Was paid at least 30% below industry standard as an SDE. Was promoted but never saw more than a 2% increase. Was on-call 24/7 for any/all issues with no backup on services in production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should hire some managers that know how to develop enterprise software instead of trying your best to keep the good-old-boys around just because they stuck with you in the tough times. When I get a manager telling the team that they simply need to "get sh*t done" without understanding the "how" to get that sh*t done, at all, that's a problem.

    I worked at Zonar Systems full-time

    Pros

    You can learn a lot here as a developer. Coworkers are respectful, helpful and are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Company sends out memos on a monthly basis with a list of new hires and fires. Constantly feeling like you have to watch over your shoulder. Office politics. Lots of pressure not to make mistakes.

    At Zonar we send out new hire and employee promotion notices only. Employee separation information is not made public.
