I have been working at Zscaler full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Smart people, giant market opportunity, great products that really work well, absolute marquis customers. All about execution at this point. One of the top companies expected to go public in 2015.

Cons

Historically was a technically driven culture - but as the company grows this is balancing out and sales, marketing and HR are coming into their own. Like any other mid-sized, fast growing firm, you need to be comfortable working in a fast changing environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the growth - it's such an exciting place to be.

    Pros

    Technology is interesting but adoption is hit or miss. Enterprise customers are a good fit for the solution.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, no sales leadership, POC process is so intrusive and forced upon prospects that they go silent. Mixed messages, is this a security play or a networking play. Every year they turn over the sales team and expect a different result

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the product to a company that can go to market.

    Pros

    Is a disruptive technology for the security market place

    Cons

    If you are a salesperson "think twice" about taking the offer. Sales cycle is 6 to 12 months plus. Look to starve until you can develop a pipe IF management allows you to develop the accounts...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize it takes longer than they would like for a sales to happen.

    It's true that sales cycles for our large enterprise sales team can take six months - but our enterprise sales teams are doing huge deals with the global 2000 - for some of our reps a single deal can ... More
