    Pros

    If you are looking for a modern HR Technology company which is really robust, then Zenefits is the place to be associated with. Transparency is the key and the leaders are so warm enough making this a true "Great Place to Work." Very flexible environment to work, good scope to learn and grow along with the organisation. Voice of every individual is heard and actioned upon. Good paymaster.

    Cons

    None to mention as there isn't anything

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

    Pros

    Though I joined them a few months back but I am excited about the work we are doing. It's been a good journey and am proud of my decision. The engineering team is relatively small but you get to learn a lot from the diverse set of employees especially the one's who have worked with Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and start ups. The environment is fast paced and I just love the USA office, I wish we have similar office in Bangalore

    Cons

    Bangalore office is in a co-working space and is not very exciting. We need to ramp up quickly and move to our own space and add some fun to daily work.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Zenefits full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people, unlimited pto, and the endless learning opportunities.

    Cons

    - Inexperienced leadership - Absurd hours: I worked from 9 am to 1 am on several occasions - zero processes in place like most startups but leadership not taking the initiative to build - extremely high turnover - watching a company come crashing due to compliance issues and watching as each state sued for millions as I had to watch my friends, colleagues in groups of hundreds being laid off - unrealistic metrics - watching the support team be screamed at to do better in a daily basis - leadership unwilling to listen - three CEOs in one year with Jay to come in on a Monday to make to final hit laying off 500 people that Thursday - allowing your leaders to tell associates their feelings are invalid thus disabling the freedom to speak or wanting to speak up even in confidence, make change, and ultimately feel not valued. Core value awards once a month looks great on paper but internally you’re overlooking everyone else.
