What is it like working with clients or customers at Zonal?

Pros

- Low deadline pressure. - Time set aside for relevant study, refactoring, hack days. - Flexible working hours. - Pen-testing training workshops run by security team. - Very customer-focussed, customers are loyal and have long-standing relationships with the company.

Cons

- No company culture, dull work environment/office. - No organised or standardised documentation, if you don't know how to configure something you need to find whoever has been maintaining it for the last decade. - No training on how to use flagship hardware and software. - All product design decisions made by product owners or developers so key software is barely useable. No qualified in-house designers. - Middle-management churn means processes always in flux. - Zero visible opportunity for career progression. No standardised appraisal process or recognition for taking initiative. - Poor communication between teams and from management. - Benefits package mediocre.

Advice to Management

Free cornflakes doesn't make you an exciting tech company. Being constantly reminded you're part of a family business isn't a substitute for actually feeling valued.

- Very customer-focussed, customers are loyal and have long-standing relationships with the company.

How is the office food at Zonal?

Pros

non, maybe free breakfast and drinks that is it

Cons

Terrible place to work. Finance is the worst team in the whole company.

Advice to Management

Avoid working in Finance with Zonal as this is terrible place to work. People are extremally toxic and competitive in the bad way. Management doesn't seem to care about the work atmosphere. They are just waiting for you to fail. Very stressful and unfriendly environment. Safe yourself a hassle and go work somewhere else . There is lot of work in Finance now a day in nice companies with nice people. Avoid !
