    I worked at Zeta Global full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO. Good WFH options. Really nice coworkers on teams and people in the office.

    Cons

    Overworking employees due to people leaving or layoffs. There used to be more training so it felt like there was room to grow. But that has stopped because of layoffs/quitting and no one has time to train or to take on training. It's a lot of throwing the work at someone and hoping they catch on right away. It'd be fine if it only happened every once in a while, but it's become the norm. Work/life balance is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Stop investing in new companies to buy and work on what you currently have, because you're bleeding it out and it's failing.

    I have been working at Zeta Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, and the people only. Some of the best, smartest, hardest working people I've ever met in my life.

    I was fortunate to report to the best manager i've ever had. A selfless, fearless, true leader who always inspired her team want to be their best without ever using fear as a mechanism to "lead". This manager never turned to the "dark" side, in spite of ever increasing pressure to do so.

    Cons

    You'll see a lot of reviews that mention layoffs. In an effort to 'self qualify', I was not laid off, and decided to pursue a different opportunity on my own terms. Thus, my feedback does not reflect that of some who feels they were unfairly terminated.

    In my own personal opinion, this company truly embodies the turning point of the great American corporation. Providing no real value to its customers or society as a whole, it sought other means of keeping the lights on. My only hope is that the company one day goes public, and I can watch as the market dictates their value, which i believe to be zero dollars, and zero cents.

    Advice to Management

    Sometime, in the not so distant future: really, truly and genuinely sit down, take a deep breath and think about all the people who's lives you have effected. Doesn't matter what company, what office, or even what continent. Just, honestly allow yourself to think about it.

    Was it worth it?

    I worked at Zeta Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited Days Off, WFH Included

    Cons

    Not signing new deals
    Less a company with a singular direct, rather a collection of companies bought by Zeta Global
    Only making revenue numbers by eliminating roles, i.e. firing people.

    Advice to Management

    Take some of incredible technology that is being created and sell it to new clients. Get all the differing companies you have purchased over the past 2 - 3 year under a singular Zeta Global "banner".

    I worked at Zeta Global full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, some good people, free food/drinks/snacks, above average pay

    Cons

    I've never been treated so poorly by anyone in my life. This is the south. We are kind to one another here. If you can't abide by that, you should not be here. It was sickening how terrible I was talked to (more like talked AT). My skills were often questioned and disregarded by management. Even when I was in the right, I was wrong. My suggestions were always "welcome", but they were never once taken into consideration or even heard. I've never been so glad to leave a place in my entire life. I'd go home feeling beaten down and useless almost every day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your people like crap and actually listen. I wouldn't make the people I hate the most work there because of some of the people I encountered there. Also - follow company-wide policies. You shouldn't get to make up your own rules on the fly just so you can feel powerful. Quit micromanaging and let your people do what they were trained to do.

    I worked at Zeta Global full-time

    Pros

    Nashville office
    Free food
    Some nice people

    Cons

    A private company so they make up numbers - they aren't even close to the revenue the CEO reports
    Keep buying dying companies and then lay off existing staff
    No idea how to lead - bad reputation in market
    Poor, dated product suite
    Massive firings - ongoing

    Advice to Management

    Zeta needs to quit acquiring companies that add no value and don't work, don't fit. Fire the people that really need firing.

    Good people to work with, unlimited PTO

    They keep acquiring companies and laying off employees without selling product to any new clients resulting in missing numbers quarter after quarter. Constant stress about job security
