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

    Pros

    Diverse backgrounds from both big and small companies, personal beliefs, etc. But the team is aligned around shared culture and vision. When you go to ask a cross functional team for help they don't say NO but rather, "Sure! I was thinking. about the same thing and why not XYZ". The solution is differentiated and has the potential to be the cloud version of what a Network should be (not just security). Really smart people.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do as a part of the growth. We also measure ourselves and look to continually improve. Hard to hide if you are not contributing to customer and zscaler success.

    Advice to Management

    There has been progress on empowering leaders more and managing by outcomes but we need to continue this.
