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

    Pros

    Brilliant people Meaningful work Crazy opportunity to make a difference Autonomy and teamwork

    Cons

    Working to navigate out of some pretty PR rough waters/sins of the past Have a tendency to try to boil the ocean

    Advice to Management

    Gain and maintain focus on only as many projects as your teams can handle. remember that new initiatives need to be balanced with existing projects, maintenance and constant system improvements. In software there is rarely, if even a project that is one and done... maintenance, improvement and iteration never ends until its time to EOL.

    I have been working at Zenefits for more than a year

    Pros

    Free food. Standard compensation.

    Cons

    Subpar quality of engineering leadership. 90% of remaining engineers are from exactly same background. Basically everyone who is capable of getting a job somewhere else, has already left or looking to leave.

    I worked at Zenefits full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Super friendly co-workers, great training, great management (in the beginning)

    Cons

    Quotas were super difficult and the job itself was monotonous. It's a sales job so if you don't perform you'll get fired. You are just a number, and you bring in numbers. Takes a long time to move up, but if you get in with the right people there is "some" job security.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and realistic expectations.

    Pros

    Leadership empowers employees to own career growth and development. Every level of leadership from Supervisor to CEO is approachable and cares about your career and your development.

    Cons

    Not much of a con if you have a strong work ethic, but you will have to work hard, so if thats not you, this might not work out for your
