I have been working at Zscaler full-time for less than a year

Pros

Super smart and passionate people. Best of class technology and vision. Great culture if you are driven to be the best and want to make a difference. People are rewarded for contributions and results. Upper management approachable, grounded and committed.

Cons

For a later stage start-up, things are very good, but they are not at the level you would get at Cisco or some of the other larger network companies, but the upside on the career and financial reward out weighs the fluffy stuff you may get at the bigger companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring smart and passionate people and let them do their thing

    I have been working at Zscaler

    Pros

    Zscaler offers ambitious, creative individuals the opportunity to be part of history in driving the company's disruptive direct-to-cloud network to overtake the stale, appliance-based model that dominates today's enterprise security space. In just 5 years, Zscaler has achieved a $1B+ evaluation, leader status in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways, an enviable Fortune 500 customer base and a patent portfolio that will keep it in the innovation driver's seat for years to come. At Zscaler you are given the resources and the opportunity that any self-starter would kill for. Work hard, contribute to the culture and enjoy the ride. This company will IPO in less than 18-24 months and since there is very little dilution, employee stakeholders won't get screwed post IPO like they do at so many other companies.

    Cons

    Senior management has a low threshold for incompetence. Don't come to work here unless you want to kick ass and be the best at what you do. Low-achievers and slackers need not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, particularly your focus on innovation. There's is no other vendor across the landscape today that can hold a candle to Zscaler's technology.
