    Pros

    ZocDoc hires incredible people - there is no doubt about that. It's awesome to come to work and actually truly LIKE the vast majority of folks you interact with. Lots of fun stuff too (lunch, snacks in the kitchen, happy hour at 5 on Fridays, ping pong, etc etc). For a young person looking to throw themselves into the brand they work for and not look back, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Are you in your late 20s/early 30s? Do you have a life? A family? Have a relationship that you care about maintaining? Have hobbies? A workout routine? Yeah... no. You don't anymore if you work at ZocDoc.

    Since the majority of the employees are super young and buy into all of the culture hype (it works! keeps 'em workin' hard which is great!), the company hasn't yet made it a priority to figure out how to be a feasible employer for people over the age of 25 who have real things in their real lives that they care about. You are rewarded for making your life all about ZocDoc, so don't plan on prioritizing anything else above it. Also, if you don't want to be a ZocDoc cheerleader all day every day, better learn how to fake it or else get chastized by management.

    Also, lots of turnover and almost zero communication about it. People who were highly visible will just.. disappear.

    Advice to Management

    Tap into the fact that you are hiring intelligent people who need a little work/life balance. All those young people are not going to be young forever, and they will go elsewhere when they remember that they used to have a life and decide that they want to have one again.

    I have been working at Zocdoc full-time

    Pros

    Great investors, good trajectory of growth. Only company doing what it does, so no competition. If you know how to sell, you'll find ZocDoc fun to sell.

    Cons

    Quota rarely attained. Only the top 10% or so are ever at quota. If you're not performing well, you will get let go very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time mentoring your employees. You go through a good number of candidates to find the ones you want to add to the team; you should take the same level of care to make sure they're successful when they are starting out.
