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

    Pros

    Just celebrated 1-year anniversary. Great leadership and culture. Much less drama and cronyism than many previous start-up cultures. Very focused on results and building partnerships and annuities. Executive leadership is excellent across the board including sales leadership. Great diversity of talent and learning opportunities. Way above average hiring and people culture.

    From a sales contributor perspective, comp plans remain very competitive despite market success and IPO success. Accountability is a key metric across sales and every other business unit.

    Cons

    Business transformation sales are never easy and are often complex and lengthy. Despite market and IPO success, Zscaler sales roles continue to require gritty determination to succeed. This is not a "con" but a caution.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to deliver excellent hiring standards throughout the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Zscaler (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    After talking to the recruiter, I was called for onsite interview with 4 people, each of 30-45 min, it went well.
    One week later, recruiter again called and said that I will have another onsite interview with executives. Went for another onsite interview with 4 Executives for 30-45 min.

    Interview Questions

    • First onsite interview:
      Questions ranging from Java(HashMap, ArrayList, Collections, JVM), REST API design, Design pattern, little data structure and algorithm.

      Second onsite interview:
      It was mainly with executives, so difficult project, given a chance what have you done differently in that project, why this position etc; nothing technical was asked.   Answer Question
