too bad one can't choose less than one star...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Santa Rosa, CA (US)

I worked at ZAP full-time

ProsA few of the people at ZAP WERE wonderfully talented and well intentioned.

ConsThe company was run by crooks who only cared about day trading their stock. Therefore, the company didn't follow any traditional business rules regarding product quality, customer service, etc. It was a nightmare!

Advice to Senior ManagementClose the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

SUCKS

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Rosa, CA (US)

I have been working at ZAP

ProsWell, it's certainly better than working at McDonald's, that's for sure.
Expect to get paid pretty decently if you're in sales/marketing.

ConsManagement isn't consistent.
Company focuses more on public relations and keeping stock prices up, vs. providing a quality product.
Management is very inefficient.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on company development rather than stuffing your pocketbooks.
Pay your employees what they're actually worth, rather than taking advantage of them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
