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

    Pros

    Smart, innovative, invested leadership team that hires smart, innovative and invested employees.
    The technology is excellent and continues to improve with each release.
    10 year old company that has NOT allowed politics to creep in! It seriously feels magical.
    Compensation is good thanks to RSU’s and ESPP.

    Cons

    Hey, nothing is perfect. Booking travel is not automated, still runs through a travel desk. No corporate credit card, at times it feels like I’m lending money to Zscaler due to the insanely slow reimbursement process (it can take a month or more).
    Other common growing pains due to exponential growth and constant realignment of goals and metrics.

    Advice to Management

    I get this will not not be a company priority compared to building new data centers, etc., but please speed up the reimbursement process, or provide company credit cards to your road warriors.
