Pros

Working at Zebra is challenging, this is a good thing. You are always being challenged to use your skills and creativity to service customers. This really helps you move your career and keeps the job fun. The people at Zebra are great! Really everyone is easy to work with.

Cons

Consistency and communication. We went threw some growing pains, now we need to get the information to the right people at the right time. Hmmm that sounds familiar.

Advice to Management

Communicate more frequently and with better information sooner.

    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The organization is full of talented people who want to do good work. Zebra is financially stable, offers competitive pay and benefits and routinely pays out against the management bonus.

    Cons

    While a mature organization, Zebra still behaves very much like a start up company with an almost exclusive emphasis on "making the quarter". The organization continues to cut jobs under the veil of "right sizing" to preserve historically very healthy margins. Performance objectives are nearly always individual in nature resulting in pockets of improvement, but not systemic improvement. Goal setting and accountability needs to be adjusted to emphasize complete solutions and working together.

    Advice to Management

    Start working with investor relations and PR to realistically adjust expectations of shareholders and analysts to more appropriately align with Zebra's level of maturity in North America. You cannot continue to cut jobs to preserve margins which are no longer realistic. People are overworked. While they have previously risen to the challenge, signs of disengagement are beginning to creep in. There is a sense that job cuts are never ending and that senior management expectations of what a very lean staff can achieve are unrealistic. The organization will not survive without the energy and talents of the people that make it up. A longer term view needs to be adopted.
