    I worked at Zenefits

    Pros

    Free lunch/snacks Great office views Cool and interesting product Free happy hours/tickets to professional ball games

    Cons

    There is absolutely no structure. It quite honestly feels as if we are all running around the office as headless chickens. They have no problem switching an employee from one position to a completely different one with absolutely no prior notice. Different managers are giving very different instructions/tasks to an employee, causing a bigger mess and more confusion. The workload is ridiculous for the amount of pay given. Unless you aspire to become a manager for insurance brokers or a large group benefits advisor, there really isn't any opportunity for significant growth.

    I worked at Zenefits full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Got to work with some of the smartest and hardworking individuals I have ever known. Leadership at the top really makes you feel like you are working towards something meaningful. The concept of the product and what it can do for small businesses across the country is amazing. Extremely grateful for the experience talking with small business owners and decision makers across the country. Unlimited PTO is awesome - and often the main reason people stay with the company.

    Cons

    Company works you until you burn out. Pay structure makes absolutely no sense - employees doing twice the work as others get paid half as much often times. They are constantly looking to cut costs which means finding people fresh out of college who they do not have to pay very much. Senior Management/VPs really do not have a grasp for what is going on at the lower levels of the organization in terms of work volume - and whenever you bring it up they like to remind you of how hard they worked to get to their senior level positions. Software can be buggy at times - but this is honestly the least of your worries compared to all of the interdepartmental fighting and poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop just praising your employees for their work and actually reward them - perhaps then they would not keep leaving. Start setting reasonable benchmarks for career progression - so that employees will stop leaving. Getting stuff like stock options are a step in the right direction but just be aware that they do not have a huge impact when everyone is consistently looking for a new job to find a way out.

    I have been working at Zenefits full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work environment Unlimited PTO Great people to work with Product is innovative Your feedback counts

    Cons

    Things are constantly changing which is what you get when you choose to work at a start up Told one thing about advancement in my interview but it never came to fruition Because you're entry level you may be taken advantage of

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees about career advancement, don't come out with advancement opportunities 6 months after they were promised, don't make those opportunities unattainable
