    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.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Zenefits full-time

    Pros

    If you work hard and prove yourself, you can grow into another role or another department. Lots of flexibility. Great benefits and perks. Free food and a very relaxed dress code. You can climb the ladder quickly here.

    Cons

    A lot of micro management- this may be a pro or con for people. But the three big things for me were: - A tendency to favor friends or "bros". - Top heavy, they kept a lot of management but cut a lot of individual contributors. - Way too much emphasis on marketing and not enough on supporting customers, sales, and operations

    Thanks for taking the time to write this review, as with most startup environments change is a prominent factor. As Zenefits scales and grows, the direction of the company may change but our core company values remain prevalent.

    I have been working at Zenefits full-time

    Pros

    Complete shift in culture post rebrand. In addition to the standard free food, solid benefits, etc. there is a positive momentum in the building that I haven't felt at other companies. Definitely a company to consider for product/engineering/sales growth opportunities. Real opportunity to control a process or make a real impact that might not be available at the larger, cash cow tech firms.

    Cons

    Concern over future; slight bitterness in older employees who are tired of pivots and shifts

    I worked at Zenefits full-time

    Pros

    Free food and unlimited vacation we’re the only things that kept me here. And some of my coworkers were pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Inexperienced leaders were prone to making poor decisions without accountability. There was a culture of lacking trust which made it tough to work there.

    Pros

    Free Food, Good location for SF and Tempe offices.

    Cons

    Their attrition rate speaks for itself. I was let go after the busy season even after being complimented by the then CEO, VP of the department and the director.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. When decisions are made at the top many factors come into play. One of them is the way it will impact all of our employees. We often have to make long term business decisions that could have negative implications in the short term. If you bear with us during our time of growth, I believe that our whole company will feel positive impact. I’d be happy to discuss any other feedback you may have. Feel free to email me directly at atiscornia@zenefits.com
