    Pros

    If your boss is good, your time at Zeta will be good. Free lunch Fridays and free bagels on Wednesdays. Some really nice people, some really smart people and some really capable people work here. CEO is very intelligent. Decent raises and decent opportunities for bonuses.

    Cons

    Can feel a bit trapping and difficult to get advancing job titles. Very high turnover, I've been here for a couple years and have seen tons of faces shuffle in and out. Heard from other employees the difficulty of working with certain bosses. Somewhat disjointed culture. Not many opportunities to meet employees other than the ones you work with directly.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need very little advice. They're doing great. Others should adjust their style.

    I have been working at Zeta Global full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Contrary to all of the negative reviews on here, I have had a great experience with the company so far and am pretty optimistic about its future. There is a pretty good deal of autonomy in the day and the work for home policy, and the people I work with are incredibly friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Because the company is so spread out geographically and focused on doing different things, there is a certain vagueness in what roles other people/departments in the company do. Friday lunches and company parties help bridge this divide, though it feels like more can be done

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. More company events would be great!

    I worked at Zeta Global full-time

    Pros

    Individual teams have good dynamics

    Cons

    The health benefits aren't great and cost a lot. Open PTO is very subjective, most teams do not allow that. 401k match is nonexistent. The company executives are scummy and make people feel uncomfortable. No one knows what's going on or what they are supposed to be doing. There's always a lot of back and forth, and tasks take much longer to get done than they're supposed to.

    Advice to Management

    Better HR and care more about your employees.

    Pros

    Can give good bonuses, if you're on their good side.

    Cons

    Global team culture can be ok. Specific team culture left more to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees happiness and reward them appropriately with what they deserve.

    I have been working at Zeta Global full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Zeta Global has great capabilities and products across Acquisition, CRM, Email/SMS platforms, Creative and Strategy. These have proven to be real differentiators in client discussions and new business proposals.

    The company is focused on growth both organically and via acquisition. As someone who joined the company via acquisition, I can say the integration process has been going exceptionally well and has exceeded my expectations.

    Strong leadership team across divisions - senior leaders are quite approachable and well regarded in client meetings.

    Good focus on people development. Great global footprint. Flexible paid time off policy. Small, but nice perks in the offices including snacks, weekly lunches, weekly breakfast, etc.

    Cons

    Benefits need a bit of revamping across health, 401K match. NY headquarters office space needs a revamp to consolidate multiple small floors into 1 or 2 floors in a quieter and more modern building.

    Advice to Management

    Host more lunch and learns so that employees across divisions have more exposure to other businesses and are better able to deliver the Zeta Global value proposition to clients.

    Pros

    Roll your sleeves and do it. Young people can have opportunities to work on big brands.

    Cons

    No formal trainings and limited directions. Learn everything on your own.

    Advice to Management

    When you give a big vision, please be more specific and get to know better about your employees' daily job.

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

    Pros

    The people who work here are definitely smart and easy to get along with. Free lunch on Fridays and flexible pto and wfh policy.

    Cons

    Benefits are pretty terrible and cost a lot, which is odd because they try to have a "start up" like cultural but none of the benefits. Roles and processes are very unclear and management has no real clear direction in the what the product is. Many employees are put on the same account so some people are left with basically no work to do. A lot of business and growth is not organic and made via acquisition. Management on different teams seem to also have no idea what other teams do or what even are.

    Advice to Management

    Have departments, teams and business units actually communicate with one another. Managers really need to actually know what their teams are doing, honestly not sure how anything gets done with such ambiguity.

    Pros

    We enjoy the ability to be able to work remotely. There is also an open PTO policy.

    Cons

    The health benefits are not good. 401k match is basically non-existent. The company executives are not professional in any way during company wide conference calls (cursing/making inappropriate jokes/etc.).
