How are senior leaders perceived at Zonal?

Pros

None - Despite what the `fake` reviews posted by HR say.

Cons

Low pay, long hours, micro managed. 12-14 hour days are common. The field managers are terrible, badly experienced and lacking knowledge. Mine was a part time Door Man (bouncer) Say`s it all really. The `technical` support engineers are a joke. Wait till you meet them! The schedulers are the worst I have ever dealt with, they cause so many issues and really should be replaced by a piece of software.

Advice to Management

Stop making engineers work 100 hour weeks, sooner or later you will be responsible for killing someone on the road due to tiredness.
