    Pros

    Key products making profit. Good working environment

    Reward Gateway Scheme Christmas / Staff Party's Lovely Customers

    Cons

    Service Managers have no idea what's going on in the field. Litreally oblivious to everything. Treated like a number not a person. Nobody cares about you. Very long hours expected of you. No Career Progression. Don't give them any feedback they don't care, or at least don't listen. Forget work Life balance, there isn't any.

    Pros

    Dev team were experienced and positive Dev team want to build and do the right thing for customers Good atmosphere and banter with the majority of staff Product Director understands the way the company needs to operate in the future Good office space Free breakfast, tea, Coffee and Soft drinks

    Cons

    Dictator style approach by manager Unrealistic expectations and no support on how to achieve goals sets (setting you up to fail) Belittled in conversations with manager Everything was fine until there is any issue at which point you are thrown under the bus - again by manager Handling of covid was very poor - comms sent to business email that you weren't meant to check while furloughed. Finding out about redundancies via whatsapp from colleagues. No contact from manager during furlough. I am sad that my time with zonal went the way it did as I was really looking forward to working with them - however this became increasingly hard due to the...lets say 'style' of my manager. I was shocked at the degrading attitude my manager showed in order to try and promote /assert themselves within the organisation. Very much a 'I say - you do' attitude which is an embarrassment to themselves and the company given this is meant to be an agile software company. I have no doubt there are many other managers throughout the company that are exceptional - I was obviously just unlucky.
