Featured Review

Current Employee - Product

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

Pros

The company is generous with its employees (time off, pay, benefits, team building events) Great work-life balance, take the time you need to take care of your life outside of work The employees... are big on collaboration Management is supportive of their team The organization is very transparent with it's employees

Cons

Not enough people speak up when they disagree

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your employees as you do (we really appreciate being heard), don't be afraid to take a stand and be the leader in the industry rather than a follower.
