    Pros

    ZEOs (employees) are each the CEO of their own contributions, impact and career. It's a very empowering place to work. If you have an interest, Zuora supports it. Leaders and employees are intelligent, thoughtful, and care about one another. Development opportunities abound with classes and lynda.com, experiential opportunities, and mentoring.

    Cons

    So many opportunities - the trick is defining our own path.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees with the coaching and career guidance to support them!

    Pros

    Great vision. Company comes across as much bigger than it is, a trait that I love to see. Product really is robust and is actually helping businesses grow in many sectors.

    Cons

    It's a very fast paced environment, sometimes too fast. Still has a start up mentality, and everyone is expected to work hard, usually 2 sometimes 3 jobs per person. Regarding management, because of the size, there isn't really a structured management (of employees) process, but they are working on that.

    Pros

    The company operates in a promising space, though growth has stagnated recently. Enterprise software is hot again, and the marketing department is simply outstanding, resulting in outsized buzz for a company of its size and revenues.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are limited because the company is hiring only to retain headcount in the face of employee churn, as there was a spate of recent exits of promising talent due to a variety of reasons. There is no culture of mentorship - it's the wild west, where you sink or swim, and not much besides mass-email kudos to reward going the extra mile.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good, hard look at yourselves, and ask why it is that you are unable to retain smart, well-educated and qualified individuals for more than a year. You need a culture of mentorship and camaraderie, not one of high stress and pressure with a thin veneer of appreciation.

    I have been working at Zuora full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined Zuora long time ago, and I'm enjoying every minute in this company.
    Great product, constantly evolving. And with this product you get to talk to the business, to the CFOs, CIOs, to the sales teams. It is not just a technical product but something that goes to the core of the business of our clients.
    Being a pre-IPO company, it's very flexible, very dynamic, and very rewarding for the best employees. Great culture, great management, both in the US and locally in Europe.

    Cons

    As all the pre-IPO company, the company lacks processes in certain areas... but is this really a cons?

    Advice to Management

    Trust your vision, trust your people
