    Great place to work but needs to focus on it's 'people first' culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Zeno is a good place to work comparatively to other agencies and has really tried to create a more understanding and inclusive environment for its employees.

    Cons

    The WFH/remote policy has been a great addition to the company and is one of the reasons myself and many others love Zeno, however, there's been a constant pressure from management to come back into the office that is very unsettling and upsetting. As a company that states they care about their employees wellbeing and work/life balance, it is contradictory to constantly send emails telling employees to "make a plan" to come into the office every week. This becomes even more concerning when management doesn't take into account people who are immunocompromised, may not have the ability to come in every week or simply just work better from home when workload is high. We've constantly seen emails come through about employees who have tested positive for COVID after being in the office and possibly spreading the virus to other employees but since COVID is over for most people who have the privilege to say so, management fails to take that into account and still expects people to come into the office several times a week. It is very disappointing and makes employees feel like there is a negative spotlight over them if they make the choice to not come in as often.

    Zeno fan until I was “mean-girled” out.

    Nov 20, 2022 - Senior Account Executive

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Most people are welcoming and warm. -Culture can be great. -Wellness stipend is nice (can be used monthly or all at once throughout the year). -Many VPs are willing to provide junior staff mentorship.

    Cons

    -Too many managers lacking experience of managing people. -Extremely nitpicky. Watch out for “share” vs. “send.” -Went to HR about management. -A lot of talk about diversity, but not much proof in the treatment of employees. -A lot of odd treatment around Gen Z in particular. Mix of glorification and mistreatment. No other generation is called attention to as much as Gen Z. -A lot of favoritism. -A but cliquish.

    No Work Life Balance & Even Worse Now With New Pressure to Come In Every Week

    Dec 2, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work with some high-profile clients - Great coworkers - Generally fun work culture - Chance to learn a lot within your team and potential for growth

    Cons

    - Everything is a fire, and employees are constantly busy, which can lead to burnout - There has been a massive push for employees to come into the office more lately, despite the agency previously championing a flexible work from home/remote work policy. They continue this push regardless of there being new cases of COVID almost every time people do go in.

    Cool group of people to work with

    Oct 17, 2022 - Senior Data Analyst

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They have a fun atmosphere and senior management really focuses on employee morale. Diverse set of clients, always something interesting to work on. Did I mention how friendly everyone there is

    Cons

    Not the best pay for how much you work, but I think its pretty fair for the industry

    Eh, it's fine

    Jul 13, 2022 - Senior Account Supervisor in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good PTO benefits especially if you stick around for a few years. If you set boundaries early on about your work/life balance, you should be fine (this is more applicable to people with some experience under their belts). Hard workers who take initiative and make things easier for others are generally rewarded. Clients are mid but getting better and better, good for your resume.

    Cons

    Everything is about favoritism. Diversity in recruitment at all levels needs a lot of work. Senior leadership can be quite out of touch in general. Creative teams are very white and male, which can discourage anyone who isn't that from speaking up. In general the "blue sky thinking" seems to be more encouraged / seen as brilliant from males, but laughed at or not taken seriously when it comes from women. Ironic considering the majority of our industry is female.

    - Excellent analytics team, with significant investment in innovation - Great team culture, 100% remote - Regular opportunities for advancement, you get out what you put in - Supportive leadership who entrust their teams with a great deal of agency & autonomy to get the work done - Leadership committed to improving work life balance, and has made great strides already - Inspirational CEO who is truly committed to doing right by employees

    Cons

    - Pay could be better, but given all of the above the difference likely isn't worth it - You get pulled in a lot of directions so you have to be someone who can juggle many conflicting priorities
