Employee Review

  1. 5.0
    Current Employee, more than 1 year

    Fast paced, but with an emphasis on work/life balance

    Pros

    Despite the fast pace, ZS really spend a lot of time on wellness and making sure we're all balancing work with the rest of our lives. Usually when you think of start-up culture, you think of long days, nights, and weekends. Being on the support side, and working globally, I have had to take a few off-hours meetings, but I'm consistently told by my management to leave early on a Friday to make up for it, or take a half day. The management across all orgs are all tuned into this culture as well. The org isn't siloed at all, and everyone is willing to step out of their role and help at any given time. The company feels like one big team all working towards the same goals.

    Cons

    The pace is fast, and the staffing is lean, which is sometimes great, but when you run into issues it can be tough to get people focused on them, as opposed to moving on to the next project. Being lean also means QA teams and documentation teams are often slower than the release schedule, which can present some challenges.

    Good-ish tech, awful culture

    Pros

    Stock equity is good if you can make it. Decent platform but not the best at one thing, platform sale. Just a proxy at the core. Awful leadership, especially sales. Withering vision for where they want to go. Worst in the industry support.

    Cons

    Leadership is awful and toxic, culture is the worst I have seen in tech, travel team is a nepotistic joke, expense team does not approve expenses, sales is micromanagement/stick based, no 401k match because they are not truly invested in their employee's future. All the 5-star reviews you see are new hires still drunk on the kool-aid. The massive attrition rate is all you need to look at to see how much of a meat grinder this place is.
