    Pros

    Good Products and Smart People

    Cons

    Everything is run out of India so nothing gets done or implemented properly or on time. india-based sales engineers do conference calls and webinars from India, while the competition doesn't, customer feel like they're not important.

    Advice to Management

    Support the teams globally in their perspective regions.

    Pros

    The product works. The pros of this company end there. The solution is real, and can work if its implemented properly.

    Cons

    Zero leadership. Office managers think they are the bosses. They nickel and dime you on travel and expenses, there is a lack of real HR, and there is much favoritism happening among certain people. Internal systems are outdated, poorly configured and lack sophistication. Both Management and Sales folks are under paid and over worked. There is a total lack of professionalism at the Princeton, NJ office. They do not trust or cultivate theirs sales people. There is no collaboration. There is zero pricing consistency. Initial quotes can be $400K+ and what they finally settled at is less than $100K, so the true value of their services is non existent. Its as if they never heard of VSOE. No integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Success in sales is brought up through true collaboration, trust, guidance and integrity. First, go and look up the definitions of those words, then try to put them in action. Pay your people what they are worth. If you want good management, you will have to pay for it.

    I worked at Zycus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good product, doing a decent job at competing with the bigger ERP competitors in their space. Slowly gaining a reputation of being a real player in the Procurement space. Competitive salaries for the sales professionals.

    Cons

    Cultural problem exists due to the HQ being in Mumbai India. Poor internal communication. Lack of presales engineers for US sales effort. They had one person flying around all over the U.S to support 8 sales reps.
    Also, there is a considerable language barrier. Customers and prospects could not understand the personnel in India on conference calls. Upper management in India completely clueless about US business tactics and needs. Marketing effort lacked consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more support for US sales effort. Move Lead Gen (those who get appointments) to the US. Cold calling from India into the US for appointments will not work.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start your career

    Challenges from the word go. Even simple tasks are made challenging, so one cannot complain about not finding any challenging work.

    Setting right expectations is the key to success. Manage your Boss. He will manage the rest.

    Cons

    Beware of Lip service, shady politics.

    Every HOD is bent on pulling the other HOD's pant down.

    Leave your real Intelligence back home, as Zycus has its own invented Artificial Intelligence which works for all products and process that run in Zycus.

    Scout for another job in hand before confronting your seniors.

    In short- No Different from any other Indian Company, so chill.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up from the artificially intelligent world created for you. There is real Intelligence beyond it.
