    I worked at ZANTAZ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people in the rank and file. Very busy firm, loads of work.

    Cons

    Too much work, too few people. Management does not listen to anyone outside of their inner circle.

    And they lie - they will tell you anything to get what they want, and then go back on their word without so much as blinking.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people. Listen to your teams - you have some great people working there.

    I worked at ZANTAZ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've had some good co-workers while working there. Also, the health insurance that I got through the company was good.

    Cons

    Horribly chaotic working environment, very stressful. Working 14 hours days including weekends at NetOps is normal, with no overtime. There is absolutely no career path. Every task is a high priority urgent issue, partly due to the fact that there is technically no QA department, so whatever Engineering creates gets deployed straight to the production environment.

    Advice to Management

    Do not try to impress the management. Most of the people who have stayed at Ops for many years had managed to do so by keeping a very low profile (so much so that management doesn't seem to be aware of some of them)

    Pros

    It used to be a great company and they attracted some of the best and brightest in the industry.

    Cons

    After they were purchased there has been a race out the door. Everyone is expected to work longer hours for the same or 1-3% more money. People are "promoted", but only given the work, not the title or salary bump. The exodus continues out the door and everyone is looking to leave. Management is either unaware or willfully ignorant. The new parent company is clueless about how consultancy and recurring revenue models function and have applied a software engineering model to a consultancy business. This has directly contributed to unhappiness, which has led to understaffing as everyone leaves, which has lead to a decrease in client satisfaction, which leads to greater employee unhappiness, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the company you bought. It is a software company in the back-room but the face of the company, at least the Boston offerings, is a services consultancy. Client teams that had 3 exclusive people (each working 45 hours/week) working on a case now have 2 people (each working 55-60hrs/week) and they're no longer exclusive to a single case, or even a handful of cases. Most clients are a two-week-notice away from complete collapse. People are -not- leaving because of the merger--they are leaving because every other company in the industry will pay 10-20k more for the work and actually have client teams and staff.

    I worked at ZANTAZ (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best professional experiences I've ever had
