    I worked at Zango full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Zango had a great culture, with some really smart people. In general, there was a distinct lack of politics, and the result was a great experience for nearly the whole time I was there.

    Cons

    Zango developed a bad reputation around, well, the whole Internet. It was partly deserved, due to some early bad business decisions, but the folks at Zango, from the top to the bottom, worked hard to fix the problems.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying, guys.

    I worked at Zango

    Pros

    Beer in the fridge. Good looking girls. Good-buddy benefits if upper management likes you. Great parties, if you enjoy that. Offices in several locations around the world are nice to visit if you are chosen for business travel.

    Cons

    It is an adware company with a terrible reputation. Very low salary disguised by bonuses (that never happen). Promises of company trips to Las Vegas and Whistler that are tied to company performance (which never met goals). Morale was and continues to stay low. Management claims an open-door policy but suggestions and concerns are never acted on. Management plays favorites among employees. Management is also incompetent...

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth. Keep an eye out for management that do not have the experience or knowledge to lead a team.
