    I worked at Zix

    Pros

    Good environment to learn new technologies, everybody is laid-back and very friendly. Good opportunity to work in very hands-on environment, small groups, good benefits in terms of salary and time off.

    Cons

    Major decisions made by people who have no long term strategy or vision for the company. Not enough focus on marketing/sales, so don't make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to make money.

  2.  

    Positive experience to start, but the honeymoon ends quickly.

    I have been working at Zix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive compensation to other similar companies.

    Cons

    Client Services division gets results at the expense of staff. No compensation is worth that kind of treatment. If you are not an engineer, or a white male, you will be mistreated or marginalized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Client Services leadership is only concerned with bonuses and needs to change. You may "get results" but the way staff is treated is resented. That means you won't get anyone recommending people come work at Zix. In fact, you'll get the opposite.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Zix

    Pros

    Decent salaries and benefits
    Nice building to work in, but commute is awful for most employees

    Cons

    The highest levels of management (and even some director-level) don't know what they are doing. They think they do, they have a lot of confidence, but in the end they make horrible decisions. They are technical, with no project management or people management skills. No cost-benefit analysis is ever required for any project (big or small) they take on. They bleed money, all from poor leadership and questionable executive decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider taking some business classes

    Disapproves of CEO
