    I worked at DemandZEN full-time

    Pros

    Remote job, no commute, no dress code

    Cons

    Schedule is NOT flexible and you are micro managed. Every click of the mouse is monitored and you do not work independently at all. Lead lists are not accurate. Managers do not train you well to the job efficiently.

    I worked at DemandZEN full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Remote work. Nice people for the most part. Fun programs for employees like a rewards system that your colleagues give out at their discretion and some contests. The owners are very nice and seem to be trying to constantly improve things.

    Cons

    Do not trust their employees. They treat them like criminals by constantly monitoring their every move. Micromanagement in the digital age; it’s borderline insane. They do not just track your time, work ethic and what you produce. They track your mouse and keyboard movement to get an activity percentage, they take multiple screenshots of your computer every 10 minutes (literally) of every hour of everyday. They monitor...

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. The monitoring every possible aspect of their day that you legally can is too much. It causes hostility. I know there is a high turnover rate, myself included and this is the reason why. I think you guys have some great tools and programs in place for employees but the monitoring has to stop. Also have a few select people do sourcing. There are to many hands in the pot. There is a lot of bad data...

    I have been working at DemandZEN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DemandZEN prioritizes employee growth. Since I began working at DemandZEN, I have had an incredible number of opportunities to expand my skill set. Agency work is exciting because you're working on various clients with a wide range of solutions. Management wants to hear your ideas, and I am constantly pushed to perform better and think outside the box. Our team is in constant communication, and we all push each other...

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to step away and be done with work for the day. On the flip side, other employees might find the work-from-home setting difficult if they don't have the ability to get motivated or if they have too many distractions. You definitely have to have a certain mindset to get the most out of working from home. And a nice home office with a door you can close makes working from home easier if you have...

    I have been working at DemandZEN full-time

    Pros

    DemandZEN makes it easy to learn more and grow your career. By stressing the importance of staying on top of new tools and methodologies, DemandZEN helps grow your abilities. DemandZEN is also very family-oriented, so when "life-happens" it's a lot less stressful and, aside from that, allows you to be there for your family and not miss out on the memories, especially when combined with the generous PTO policy. Another...
