I have been working at Zayo full-time (More than a year)
I can only speak to my experience at Zayo and do not discount the other reviews on this site although with all of the negative reviews, I had to say something. I have been at Zayo for a little over two years and have had great career opportunities. There has been a lot of changes in the past few months; however, in the telecom industry, change is the only certainty. It is important to take pushback to change with a grain of salt as some people can handle it better than others. Zayo is growing rapidly and it needs to change to be successful. I was not here pre-IPO so I cannot speak to that culture and environment but I see maturity happening daily. Zayo is a great company with tons of opportunities if you are not afraid of hard work. Some people simply do not cut it here. There is a lot that is asked of each employee and I have seen tons of people rewarded for that hard work. If you are looking for a slow-paced, tedious company, ZAYO IS NOT FOR YOU. If you want growth opportunity that does not exist in most companies, apply here!
Work-life balance is something that most people at Zayo struggle with. This is due to the fast-paced nature. There are opportunities for you to make career changes as needed within Zayo as life needs change however I feel this is important to state for anyone considering employment here.
Advice to Management
I understand you are trying to shift the culture while maintaining the entrepreneurial spirit and I know this is difficult. The more transparent you can be on what changes are happening and more importantly WHY they will may Zayo a 100 year company, I think you will get more buy in.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zayo.
Only one round of interviews. The process was straightforward and to the point. Basic technical, personality, and situational questions. Overall effective process. The interview was performed by a manager and team lead.
