Pros

Zacks is a very specialized firm that caters to a very specific client base. I like the fact that the position is very challenging and that I work with very bright people. Working for a small company means that everyone's role is important and that we are nimble enough to change quickly to serve our clients.

Cons

Since we are expanding our growing pains are sometimes felt in that we cannot offer everything we would like to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay open to being client driven. Our services should serve them not the other way around. For the most part we deliver what what we promise, we need to continue to execute effectively.

    Pros

    You can read newspaper, browse web and enjoy your day there without anyone checking your work;
    you get free benefit by telling lies such as I am sick

    Cons

    ideas are usually not respected;
    personal contribution not rewarded;
    VP makes all the say, even when they make stupid decisions - and by the way, you are often the last one to know anything about it;
    people are let go without giving a second chance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Len oversees everything, but he is too old and old-fashioned that he barely gives a shXt to employee's complains;
    and, he takes a close control of budget, so don't ever expect him to give you raise, or even support your green card application!

    Seem to be actively outsourcing all departments to India - as mush as possible anyway.
