    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.

    I worked at Zoot Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    Pros

    The people at Zoot are absolutely fantastic to work with. The work can be very interesting from both technology and industry perspectives.

    Cons

    Certain positions can be very isolating. Zoot's culture doesn't quite reach employees on non standard schedules. Communication teams and expectations between departments should be overhauled.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage collaboration between departments and teams.

    Pros

    Great workplace community. Great people/

    Cons

    Management does not care about their employees. Time sheet reporting for salaried employees is over the top- its not just for billable hours. there is a "good-ol-boys" club. there is next to no women in management or represented in important decisions.

    Pros

    Flexible, creative, challenging, open, experimental, innovative, loyal, fun, fast-paced, interesting, and solution-focused. A company you can grow with over the years.

    Very developer-centric. Engineers carry more weight than anyone else. Management could communicate more clearly and consistently to rally the forces behind a united vision.

    Empower your employees and keep an inspiring vision in sight for all.

    Slow to Address Low Performers

    Advice to Management

    Open the lines of communication between executives and employees. Recognize quality performance faster and more consistently - this seems to vary greatly by manager.
