    ZAGG Zelousness

    Assistant (Current Employee) South Salt Lake, UT

    ProsA fast paced, growing company with continually changing product lines continually identifying the "next" big technology. Company is led by energetic and very forward thinking executives who demand a lot but compensate well with great salaries, good benefits and excellent corporate amenities. Although it is growing very quickly, the culture is vibrant and friendly. it's an awesome place to work.

    ConsWork hours can be demanding and deadlines are usually immediate, but managers understand this aspect of the company. If one works well under pressure, handles change and is willing really work, the pros far out weight the cons.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exciting to work for

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsWhile I was at ZAGG, I felt like it was an exciting place to work. The company was growing like crazy, and they did a good job of pumping up the employees. It wasn't big and bureaucratic, and the overall feeling was very entrepreneurial.

    ConsSometimes the cheerleading aspect of the company culture was a little over the top, in my opinion. Compensation also could have been better, though I was very new to the job market so my negotiating skills weren't the best.

    Communication BREAK DOWN

    (Former Employee)

    ProsGetting (some) products right when they first come out is beneficial to help build excitement about the company and product.

    ConsThere is a complete lack of communication and synergy that doesn't seem to be improving. Each department is so cut off from the other departments. So work is either redundant or goes into several completely different directions leaving each department having to "guess" what is expected of them and often missing. When one department is busy the others aren't busy it leaves A LOT of down time and wasted opportunities to help each other out 'as a team'. There is no differential between hourly and salaried employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove to a more collaboratively friendly building with upgraded features for everyone. Become more transparent. Listen to what employees are saying or not saying: there is HUGE general consensus or feeling of unhappiness within the company this needs to change it's a poor reflection on the health of the company if every employee is on antidepressants.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall a good place to work

    Quality Assurance and Helpline (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe people I worked with were great and the overall environment was enjoyable. The pay was sufficient for the work. The products were fun and interesting. No nights or weekend hours. Centrally located in the Salt Lake Valley.

    ConsI always felt there was a lack of opportunities and personal growth within the company. Even people that were more than qualified for available positions weren't given opportunities. There was always a lack of communication between departments. Poor benefits. Job security ultimately was an issue.

    Fast but not well thought

    Manager Level (Former Employee)

    ProsThe middle and lower ranks have a can do attitude and creativity to get things done.

    ConsInfrastructure -- This company lacks the basic infrastructure in an organization this size. No intranet with centralized data - Sales data, inventory, vendor, quality reports, pricing and forecasting are updated on spreadsheets and stored in un-accessible departmental Cloud folders. Information isn't updated live and requires day and up to weeks to have the info collected. Development of product isn't well though through and is reactive based on competitor actions.
    Management - Power is centered around people who started with the company. Instead of resolving problems at the source. People with less seniority are often used as scapegoats to deflect blame.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to build a centralized intranet that provides instant information on the metrics listed above. The longer you wait, the more difficult and expensive it will be. This was the main cause of the excess inventory problem that the company is having.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustrating

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCool vibe, energy. Great coworkers.

    ConsThere were the execs and then everyone else. Too much decision making concentrated in the executive team. Everyone else just waited on them to make decisions. Not much upward mobility available. Poor compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFlatten the management structure. Give others some more decision making authority.

    An low stress job, but inconsistent hours.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLow stress job, you stand in a mall for hours without a customer at times.

    ConsDon't rely on the hours you have. They'll drop from 36 to 20 in a week will little warning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople need to pay rent, they rely on consistent hours to do so. Don't screw over employees.

    Zagg is a company with a good, easy to sell product, but bad management.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood products, good warranty, can be fun at times

    Conslow hours, dealing with crazy customers often, working at a kiosk

    Advice to Senior Managementpay more attention to employee and consumer concerns.
