    Pros

    They provide solid training, but also give employees a lot of freedom to work independently. Solid product offering.

    Cons

    They are a conglomerate of a number of companies, so sometimes the teams don't communicate well.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the business a bit more and keep pushing the envelope.

    I have been working at Zeta Global full-time

    Pros

    I really like my job and the people I work with here. People are smart and work hard and in general there is a lot of teamwork. They have brought in a lot of new management recently and made a lot of improvements in how the company operates. I work in the CRM group so I don't know as much about the other parts of the company but I would say our group is well run and they give us regular updates on strategies and results. There has been more communication overall lately and much more of a focus on employees.

    Cons

    Could use more general training options besides just training for your specific job. New York office needs upgrading.

    Advice to Management

    The increase in communications has been good, but more would be better. People are interested in learning more about what other teams do.

    I worked at Zeta Global full-time

    Pros

    - great co-workers
    - terrific management
    - really nice office environment
    - snacks and drinks as far as the eye can see
    - catered bagels on Wednesdays and lunch on Thursdays is fantastic
    - very supportive and collaborative environment
    - company has lots of potential and seems driven

    Cons

    - day to day work is repetitive and can be rather aggravating (recurring issues with assets - fix it today and expect to fix it tomorrow... and the next day... and the next day)
    - employee expected to "find own organization" method rather than best (or even agreed upon) practices
    - streamlining opportunities EVERYWHERE
    - getting out at 6pm is not ideal
    - sometimes the trainers (who I'm sure are plenty busy) could use a little more empathy and less "talking down voice" (trust me I wouldn't have asked you if "I remembered")
    - showing me a many step process once or twice doesn't mean I'm going to "get it" right away)

    Advice to Management

    - unify and streamline both internal and client facing documents and processes
    - better and easier sharing of "fixes"
    - monthly touch-base with employees to find areas that need reinforcement and/or attention
    - add or reinforce context to training topics (I don't know what "widget a" is doing so telling me that "widget a" and "widget b" interact in "process 1" to yield "outcome z" is something I probably won't understand until I have more context about "all of these things")
    - sometimes "sink or swim" mentality leads to some people drowning... getting in over your head sometimes just makes for a bad experience and morale

    Keep up the momentum with new products and acquisitions. Keep moving forward prepping the company for the future.

    Pros

    Great people to work with!
    There is lots of upside as this business grows.

    Cons

    HR needs some help - not service oriented
    Finance needs some organization but getting better

    Advice to Management

    Love the direction we are taking.
    Need to focus on getting the right people in the right seats on the bus - close but not perfect yet. Spend some money on automation tools - especially in Finance - will need that as we grow.

    Pros

    Good pay but listening to recruiters was the worst the biggest mistake I could've done.

    Cons

    Zeta was a big scam. When i allies they were a big company tht was trying to go to public but when I started taking to tenure employees I lesrdndd it was all lie. Zetas biggest thing is to acquire company and fire all their employees and acquire all their customers. This has been their strategy for 7 years in the making but they couldn't figure it out with their big investors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open with employees. U spend a lot of money on recruiting employees from competitors, so make sure u keep them happy!

    Pros

    Relaxed Env. in Burlington Office

    Cons

    Chaos rules the day at Zeta.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money on your employees - no raises and boasting of all of the Venture Capital coming in is not a good mix
