    I worked at Zoot Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, good people, secure company, bring your dog to work, lunch room, frequent employee appreciation events, Nice office building, offer training for those that want it, moving around the company isn't overly difficult. Management cares about employees on a personal level it's easy to feel like family.

    Cons

    Pay is okay for Bozeman but not on par with local competition for talent (oracle, web filings, apt us). In a college town where new young talent is easy to find which depresses the pay people can demand. Losses of long tenure employees over the last year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to improve, stagnant companies will be passed up by competition. The intellectual capital losses of tenure employees will hurt. Offer more Training to employees on your systems so when those losses happen the company is not adversely impacted.

    Pros

    Bring your dog to work, flexible hours, great location

    Cons

    Company is not scaling well. They are continually bringing on new clients without fixing old problems that plague the company, especially in production. The brunt of these problems falls on the service desk, which has to rely on others to fix it.

    I have been working at Zoot Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent upper management. Great culture. Allows me to bring my dog to work. Best CEO I have ever seen.

    Cons

    The service desk supervisors only promote their buddies and push everyone else to the side. The only way to get anywhere is with the supervisors blessings and if your not a part of the chosen few its not going to happen. Sadly employees on the service desk get tired of being mistreated so they give up on zoot and move on. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for employment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to how your mid level are being treated and you might not be losing good employees at such a unmanageable rate.

    I worked at Zoot Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Company takes care of their employees. Fun group activities. Gym downstairs, free breakfast and subsidized lunches. Great opportunities for those without tech degrees to gain experience and advance in the field. Provides a great number of quality jobs to the area.

    Cons

    It seems like your experience will vary quite a bit based on the team your are placed in.

    Advice to Management

    Some form of training or reading assignments for developers would bring in more awareness of existing tools and methodologies.

    Pros

    Casual work attire, Dogs allowed, On-site cafeteria, Nice location for views, great outdoor opportunity when given the chance to experience it.

    Cons

    As the company got bigger, the quality of the people that were hired went downhill. They got to the point where they were hiring anybody that had a pulse just to appear to have enough "warm bodies" to satisfy client comfort in them.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the whole lot of them and then hire actual people that actually know how to manage employees. Employees that are "promoted" from the development side make the poorest managers and will terminate employees that they have a grudge against
