    I have been working at Zazzle full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been at Zazzle for two years and have really enjoyed my time. My manager is smart and our group has grown significantly. I was hired to work in the international team and have gotten exposure to thinkgs like SEM and SEO that I knew nothing about when I started.

    Cons

    The most successful people (those who get promotions anyway) work pretty long hours (9 to 7:30 or so). If you want one on one time with senior management, you need to stay late.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more people in the office that fit your target demographic

    I worked at Zazzle full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    At the time... The best co-workers Proactive mentors Team building Discounts

    Cons

    Reading these reviews is like reliving a nightmare over and over again. Having been tipped off that things were beginning to unravel, I left for a much better opportunity long before most others. It looks like that may have been the best decision I've ever made. At that time it was obvious to everyone that relying on disinterested and disengaged founders mixed with some of the worst senior management ever assembled was...

    Advice to Management

    You never have nor will you ever listen to anyone outside your dysfunctional cabal, however at a minimum please update the website to show only current employees if there are any left. When it eventually loads those pages look more like your company's obituary. The rest, like I said, would just be lost on you unfortunately. Taking advice from some of those that left could have prevented or at least slowed your current...

    I have been working at Zazzle full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The poor souls who slave away for a money hungry family called the Beavers. The employees here are extremely nice and personable only when they're not scared to speak during work hours. The office spaces are very modern and nice but don't let that fool you b/c that's the only thing Zazzle has to offer.

    Cons

    The management team (Beavers) Jason - their side kick (CMO, CFO, hitler) No growth - don't let them lie to you. There's NO growth whatsoever and you can forget about getting raises because there aren't performance reviews or anything to that effect. if you want a raise then you better start beg, lie and steal. Don't believe the positive reviews on here because the CEO has coerced employees to leave fake positive feedback...

    Advice to Management

    Don't make your employees leave positive reviews to try to entice new employees to join the company. it won't take long for them to notice the issues that are going on internally. Low morale, no team work, way too many meetings to discuss nothing, they expect you to work at least 12 hours a day or else you're considered a bad employee.

    I don’t normally engage in online forum postings/rebuttals, etc., but given that my name was specifically called out in this one, I feel compelled to respond. If there’s a specific action/behavior on my part that has offended you, I apologize. I hope that as a current employee, ...

    I have been working at Zazzle full-time

    Pros

    They are located in a nice business complex in the middle of Silicon Valley. However, given recent news that Google just acquired the complex called Pacific Shores, I doubt Zazzle will be there for much longer. There was a $5 lunch card that was given to most employees. The gym benefits were also very good. Not much pros to say about the inner workings of the company itself. It's very disorganized and decentralized.

    Cons

    Compensation is below industry standards in most of the business units. Marketing staff is underpaid, customer service business agents are treated as second class citizens and the creative team is almost non-existent anymore. Perks...yeah well there's a $5 credit for lunches and dinner is catered Monday-Thursday. However, expect to stay very late if you order dinner unless you'd like to be shunned by upper management....

    I have been working at Zazzle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Located in a nice campus. 5 dollar lunch cards. Snacks.

    Cons

    Employees work in constant fear of upper management. Many employees are not allowed to park in font of the building or smoke cigarettes near it. There have been employees terminated in the past for this.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at Zazzle full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Very few. Good location i guess, since office is in Redwood City. The gym at the complex is nice, but that is no reflection on Zazzle whatsoever.

    Cons

    Gee where to start....benefits, pay, no upward movement opportunities whatsoever, CEO does not perform CEO duties, micro managing managers, all internal tools and systems are archaic. I have seen countless employees who were management potential passed on because they didn't have the pedigree that the inner circle of executives at management want. Furthermore, the turnover has been so massive over the past year, that...

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, invest in the future and stop pretending to be something that you're not. This is not an elite company by any means. Don't let the big investment in a nice office fool you. Simply go on their facebook page and look at how many customers have had issues with their orders on a daily basis. The numbers are massive. Is that an elite company? Probably not. Stop pretending to be Amazon.
