    I have been working at Zywave full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have been here for 3 years now, there has been a lot of change and usually change is scary, however I feel like the leadership here at Zywave made sure to keep the employees in the look with every change they were making and they made the transitions easy and painless. The direction the company is heading is exciting, I am proud to be part of something that I KNOW will be big! When it comes to management, I have...

    Cons

    I could go on and on about the things I love about this company, and I would encourage ANYONE to do what it takes to get in here. To all the people that say this place is only good for those who are entry level. Well, I am NOT entry level and I am saying this place is good for all levels.

    I have been working at Zywave part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love it here so far. I'm completely satisfied with the culture here. I am currently an intern, but the opportunity for growth seems endless.

    Cons

    There are not any cons that I've noticed yet, though, I've only been here a short time.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Zywave full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Typical sales role - make money if you can meet quota

    Cons

    - During one meeting a manager made a joke about Zywave's relationship with their clients ("our customers hate us"). I didn't think that was funny and knew then that it was time to look elsewhere. - Focus mostly on sales, don't really offer their customers any impressive customer service - Unethical and two-faced management - Unrealistic quotas

    Advice to Management

    I doubt they would listen or care

    I have been working at Zywave full-time

    I am a new-hire here at Zywave and have had a great experience in my short time with the company.

    I worked at Zywave full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Cool facility? Great place for grads fresh out of college to cut their teeth?

    Cons

    Their brand is one of the worst in the insurance space. It makes it extremely difficult to be successful there. Senior reps will get handed most of the good opportunity or job duties and leave new reps fighting for the scraps.

    Advice to Management

    Stop legally pursuing your customers, former customers, and former employees. Forcing people to stay in a relationship with you by use of legally enforced scare tactics isn't going to further your business, or brand.

    I have been working at Zywave full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Invests heavily in on-boarding and continuous learning for employees. Everyone is always willing to help. Very positive changes under the new CEO. Much easier to see how Zywave stays on top now.

    Cons

    Wages are below average for the region in some positions.

    I worked at Zywave full-time

    Pros

    Culture is young and eager to work. Great PTO and work life balance.

    Cons

    Compensation is below market value. There have been a lot of changes within the past year. Have lost a lot of talented individuals because of compensation and said changes. With the continued loss of tap talent, knowledge gaps are becoming part of the norm.

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

    Pros

    The flexible hours: Zywave's core hours are 9am - 2pm which means you need to be in the office, but that leaves you the flexibility to work later or longer and leave earlier. It is wonderful for not eating up all your vacation time for appointments. Required continuous education: Whether it is a webinar, article, book, or class, it is expected that you constantly strive to stay on top of trends and self improvement....

    Cons

    There really isn't a lot of negatives in all honesty. SOME aspects of meetings: I have yet to be in a meeting that I was like, "what is the point." They are focused and believe in starting and stopping on time. The only thing is, some days my meetings are stacked up, back to back for a solid 3 hours. I hate to be late so sometimes you forgo basic needs. Temperature: Sometimes the building is exceptionally cold....
