    I have been working at ZipRecruiter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a strong culture to make sure we take care of our employees and that we provide the best service to our customers. The people make it such a great place to work.

    Cons

    It is a company that has to move fast and adapt quickly to the demands so there are times when we might not get it right 100% of the time the first time but always correcting where we need to.

    I worked at ZipRecruiter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work/life balance (no nights, holidays or weekends), uncapped commission, great commission structure, supportive management, excellent sales training, high energy, free lunch/snacks, team competitions with prizes & outings, great health benefits, etc.

    Cons

    The metrics were a little unrealistic sometimes during holidays (and during COVID) and the healthcare used to be free but it became a cost they cut.

    I worked at ZipRecruiter full-time

    Pros

    nice friendly people. Santa Monica location.

    Cons

    lack of vision, lack of strategy, no product clarity whatsoever; running on (cash) fumes with stock nearly worthless. Folks are nice but laidback.. no hustle to get things done, even when company won't likely be around in 2 years. Internal promotion is great, but many of the VP and up folks aren't that strong.

    I worked at ZipRecruiter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people that worked their were super cool and nice for the most!

    Cons

    The management in certain departments was not only very disorganized but also played favorites. There were times when members on my team would speak up about a problem we were having and nothing would get done about it. Super strict on metics. No freedom to find what works best for you. Did not about about employees at all. It was all about the money. That was especially prevalent when everyone was laid off via zoom only 2 weeks into working at home. Keep your sanity and work somewhere else.
