    I worked at MZ full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great employee perks (if unnecessary and extravagant)
    - Free snacks, drinks, and lunch
    - Great coworkers

    Cons

    - Blatant nepotism. You only see the hope of a promotion or role change if you kiss enough butt, suck up to the right people, or are friends with management – even if you're not qualified for the position you're moved to
    - Positions are invented for people to do nothing because management likes them
    - Employee concerns are not taken seriously or ignored
    - Zero transparency. There's a lot of talk about communication and being transparent but it's just that, talk. Open communication and transparency was NEVER an occurrence there.
    -Constant drastic changes with no warning or consideration for the affect it will have on employees

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting and protecting your friends because they're your friends. Really consider an employee's worth to the company and not to your companionship.
    Listen to your staff about their managers. If an entire team is not happy with their manager, it's not an issue with the team it's an issue with the manager.
