    I have been working at MZ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MZ time is an unique concept. We move a lightning speed and the projects we take on are enormous. We have big goals: "reach for the stars" aspirations, and we are determined to will them into reality NOW. That kind of vision requires dedication and determination as well as some patience. MZ is the most challenging environment I've ever worked within, it's also the most rewarding. I've grown so much in the last year and a half that I am not only a better employee and manager, but a better person, as well. The amazing feeling of looking back at a year's progress to marvel over visions realized is well worth every OT hour and every frustrating moment it took to do it.

    Cons

    There's always something that could make things faster, better, easier, cleaner, or less work, but I believe I learned more from the mistakes I've made, from the challenges I overcame and from the roadblocks I smashed than I would have if they weren't present at all. Every company has it's challenges. We work through them and learn from them.

    Senior Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MZ (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    Recruiter was very friendly and very well versed in the company, unlike most I’ve come across. Very honest about the culture and job requirements which was appreciated. I ultimately ended the recruiter interview because the culture was not a fit for my lifestyle.
