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

    Pros

    I left one of the enthusiastic positive reviews stating a number of pros. I had just been hired, and was strongly encouraged (but sadly not paid as some have suggested) to post a review. I bought into the story of the CEO and all the hype. Let me tell you that it's all complete lies. There are no pros to working here. Sure there are some decent people in non-management, but that isn't company related. The people that run this company are cheats and liars, and if you want to get first hand experience seeing how badly a company can be managed - how every market advantage they have can be turned into a disadvantage by sheer incompetence - then I guess you could consider that a PRO.

    Cons

    It's all downside at Zag. No policies, no planning, constant/extreme dishonesty, rewards brown-nosing - punishes honest assessments, punishment of those that don't go along with the outrageous lies everybody supposed to believe, expectation to work all hours of day and to go along with CEOs insane hair-brained schemes, expectation to literally idolize CEO and his obviously fabricated backstory (not joking - think North Korea). This place is crazy.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is beyond advice....he needs serious psychological help. To the rest of the management that's still there: grow a spine. Cowards.
