    I worked at Zend Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly smart people with a very good product line. It had a great growth potential that could have been seized with the right conditions.

    Cons

    Competing with Open source (free) products. Not enough stickiness to the products incurage renewals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the good fight!

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

    Pros

    I loved working with the people at Zend Technologies -- they are smart, caring and helpful! For every situation you will get at least three solutions, all of them well thought of and articulate. The company culture is international - you get to work with people from all over globe: US, Italy, France, Germany, Israel, Ireland and more. Meeting everyone at the annual conference is a real pleasure! Weekly beer bash where we all gathered with the CEO for a quick update on the week's events in the company were a great opportunity to feel part of the company and socialize with your co-workers.

    Cons

    the workload can sometimes be too much -- like in any startup, it is up to you to work with your manager on prioritization!

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees with prioritizing the right tasks so they won't feel overwhelmed, and will have the best chances to succeed.

    Pros

    Exciting job from a technical point of view. Playing with the latest technologies around PHP and web applications.

    Cons

    Challenging job because your work can affect many PHP developers in the world. Pressure periods are guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    More engineers will ensure a better productivity with better products and more sales.

    Pros

    Nice place to grow up technically. Good people to work with. Great possibility to work tightly with and within Open Source communities.

    Cons

    The downsides are insignificant to specify them here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the software quality and stability, instead of hurrying up with developing new features. The software development is Twitter-driven.
