Pros

ZoomInfo is a great company for software development. ZoomInfo offers challenging work using up to date and interesting technologies. It is a great place to develop new skills and gain experience in some of the "hot" industry technologies. There are a lot of great employees here that are more than willing to share their own knowledge, encourage employee growth, and have fun in the process. ZoomInfo is attempting to tackle some very difficult problems that will push you as a software developer. Additionally, the work/life balance is fantastic and management is very easy to work. A number of the managers at Zoom were previously developers at Zoom, so they have a great understanding of the challenges presented in the work here.

Cons

The challenges presented by the problem space that ZoomInfo is attempting to solve are substantial. This means that as a software developer here, you will be expected to push yourself, work hard, and solve problems. There are plenty of resources here to guide you, but it is an expectation that employees will work hard at problem solving and develop skills over time to tackle issues presented by challenging projects.
Also, as a small agile company, Zoom tries to react to changes in the marketplace. As a result, software developers may find themselves facing shifting priorities. This has been improved recently as Zoom appears to be better understanding and focusing on specific, concrete goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a focus on specific goals and communicate those goals to employees. This will keep employees driving towards company goals. Knowing that priorities can shift in a company of Zoom's size, communicate reasons for changing priorities to help alleviate concerns.

    Pros

    Interesting and new technologies - not a dull moment if you are open to learning new things.
    Management actually listens to your concerns and makes steps to fix the problems, even if a little slow.
    Great life/work balance - flexibility in hours and time off.
    Peer engineers are smart and talented.

    Cons

    Somewhat unstable projects - you can be pulled into a side project, projects might be cancelled or mothballed - but doesn't get out of hand.

    Pros

    The product is very good. They have, and are continuing to put a lot of money into the engineering side to make it one of the top B2B contact databases on the market.

    Cons

    For the sales team, there are no territories or verticals to call on. It's a complete free for all for new business. It creates a terrible working environment for new business account reps as they are all going for the same accounts and stepping on each other to bring in new business. There are multiple instances of people totally screwing over their fellow employees to complete a sale. There is a complete lack of team work for the sales staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some organization. The CEO and head of marketing split their time between Israel and the US, so a lot goes on without their knowledge or oversite. With the product, this could be a great company, but the lack or direction and organization makes for a tremendous amount of turnover by the employees.
