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

    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 2 years

    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.
