    Great when it was a small company

    ProsGreat people to work with. Good work/life balance. The Zagats are nice people and they paid well.

    ConsGoogle purchased them and do not know how to grow the business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a big difference between marketing a business and growing a business.

    Poor management; no growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWorking for a brand as well-known and well-respected as Zagat will look good on your resume. Other than that, there wasn't much about them that was impressive.

    ConsTim & Nina couldn't give a crap about their employees. Low pay and lack of adequate technology resources. Maybe it's gotten better since Google bought them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the last name, but lose Tim & Nina and put some fresh, young visionary in their spots.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work, if you play the politics right.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWorking at Zagat was enjoyable. The work was challenging and the coworkers were great. Casual work environment and a great location.

    ConsVery political. It was easy to see who were favorites of senior management and those people were beyond reproach. Benefits are only okay. Pay was below market value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut more faith in your employees. You hire people for a reason and then disregard their advice.

    Great brand/product, very low pay

    Account Executive (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat product and brand, and for the most part the people are great. The sales management staff is pretty good and all in all it's a "fun" job and a great product to sell. Sales goals are very reasonable and fair, and the opportunity for growth is definitely there too.

    ConsVery low pay, "Mom and Pop" company that is a little old fashioned and hesitant to change. There are also definite favorites among the staff but hard workers are surely appreciated. Many internal struggles since so many hands are on any given project. Employees need to be willing to wear many hats in order to be successful.
