    Free breakfast if you work at head office, I’ve left the company, PR excel at making out this is a great family company

    Cons

    Too many to mention , Service managers no idea what is going on, HR department wouldn’t even know there is one as nothing is ever sent apart from discount offers for tech Expected to give 2 hours a day travelling time , hour in the morning and evening which isn’t paid, low pay for london

    I worked at Zonal full-time for less than a year

    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.

    Pros

    Free breakfast and soft drinks

    Cons

    Minimal personal development or other training opportunities for technical staff. Technical decisions often made by non technical management and regarded as final. Engineers then expected to implement specific often practical solutions rather than solve actual customer problems. Repeated attempts to be "agile" scuppered by managers and sales and marketing who cling to the waterfall model. Incredibly siloed organisation, both functionally and by product. Software quality always the first to go after customers have already been promised dates and features prior to any R&D involvement, with the only solution the "overtime is available" email.
