Pros

Redefining enterprise technology and network optimization with Direct-to-Cloud Network.

Company is well-positioned for success in the robust security market.

Experienced management team remains accessible to advise employee growth.

Strong sense of camaraderie includes ice cream parties, BBQs, wine-tasting events and bake-off contests.

Free catered lunch every Thursday and plenty of drinks and snacks.

Cons

CEO Jay Chaudhry has a reputation for frugality, but has the best interests of the company at heart and is willing to invest in justified expenses.

Like any large or growing organization, strategic initiatives can quickly rise and fall, depending on any number of extenuating circumstances, which can give the illusion of chaos, but at the highest level that strategy is well-defined and well-executed.

Advice to Management

Stay the course! Continue to invest in technology, partnerships, sales, service and support.

    Luck of direction, assuming that you spend lots of extra hours min 10 a day, so no life. Not able to work remotely .

    Pros

    They are visionaries in their technology space and have a lot of potential. You will find an organization with:
    * Very smart & incredibly hardworking people
    * Amazing Product & Innovation
    * Atmosphere of dedication
    * Very approachable upper management (CEO)
    * Place to be if you are straightforward, self-motivated & love technology
    * Your ping-pong skills will improve

    Unlike larger companies where a lot of people end up taking credit for your hard work, Zscaler is very meritocratic. The CEO and Management are very clued-in on who's doing what and it is easy to shine here if you do good work. You will work with a very smart and driven group of people who share a common passion in making cloud security a reality. There is more emphasis on communication (monthly-all hands) and Thursday lunches are catered in to meet with folks.

    Cons

    When you are the first one in the space, the burden falls on you to validate all aspects of the technology and make it work. The team here continues to work through these challenges and you will need a optimistic can-do attitude to succeed here. If you are used to having efficient processes and procedures and a very structured approach to work, you may find yourself at sea.

    However, on the bright side, you can define these procedures. Likewise, do not let things fester and feel free to scream out to your manager as people here are very busy and may not have time for the mollycoddling and regular 1:1 available in larger companies.

    Advice to Management

    Continue building the brand, company values and hiring experts in different domain areas to ensure smooth functioning of all departments. Focus on doing things more methodically. The company has reached critical mass and more processes will become important in the coming years.
