I have been working at ZestFinance full-time

Pros

In itself, the company is forward thinking. The management is first class. They listen and provide productive, useful feedback that helps encourage growth and development. The employees on the whole, are wicked smart and open for conversation. Also, working remotely is an option that is available.

Cons

Department communication tends to be the biggest set back. Teams will make decisions that effect others, but not communicate the idea, and cause unnecessary issues. Some teams have a limited understanding of what others do, thus making decisions questionable based on lack of knowledge.

Advice to Management

Work on inter-departmental communication between teams and lower management to reduce the number of avoidable errors.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at ZestFinance full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, great technology, and some very kind and smart people. Most people at this company are respectful and mean well.

    Cons

    No transparency with management and a draconian HR team. The CEO is disengaged from employees (he doesn't even know some of their names) and only listens to his under-qualified and sycophantic inner-circle. This inner circle has coordinated multiple layoffs more so to hide their own incompetence than to benefit the company. It's a shame because there is a lot of potential in the people and product, but it is held back my the insecurity and egos of a few people.

    Advice to Management

    Check your ego. Get rid of the brown-nosers. Ask your employees what they want and then listen. You don't need to be perfect, but you do need to admit you are wrong on occasion and empower people who think differently than you.
