    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Zyrion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unlike a lot of other startups, Zyrion had good customer growth and great brand name customers. For software engineers there is nothing more satisfying than seeing your creation sell against big established competition.
    Senior management had a good pulse on the market requirements and how to market effectively.

    Good salary, health benefits and matching 401k. The company threw regular parties and outings for employees, free tickets for sports events, etc. Looked like they cared about the employees.

    Cons

    It is a smaller company with a relatively flat org structure so if you are looking for a large structured HR company, then perhaps not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Will need to setup more formal HR structure as company grows. Please do not reduce the excellent HR benefits.

    Pros

    Lots of interaction between groups, lots of learning. Little interference from managers.
    Lots of group team building activities, great benefits.

    Cons

    Too many activities can be overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to add some HR structure because some employees like formalities and hierarchy instead of open communication channels.

    I have been working at Zyrion

    Pros

    Professional highly competent team, flexible work environment, good balance of work and leisure.

    Cons

    Very low appreciation of individual achievements and contribution, no bonuses paid despite good company and personal performance, bonuses used only as a negotiation mechanism at hiring time, very high ratio managerial stuff per employee, virtually no opportunity for personal growth within the company, no salary reviews or individual performance assessment for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people for their hard work and dedication on a personal level

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, there is a diverse group of people to work with. Most people have a good sense of humor about the task at hand and there is great opportunity to meet people all around the world.

    Cons

    They are hard driving on the fact that you are 'a part' of the company and defer questions about raises and promotions based on the fact that you are 'invested'. They require a lot of extra work and are not afraid to keep you up all hours.

    Even though you are 'invested' you really have no say about how the company should move forward and are often left completely out of milestone decisions until months later.
