    I have been working at Zonal full-time


    Nice people, good offices. Desire to make things better and do the right thing. Great Christmas parties.


    There is a lack of direction as customer needs swamp everything. Board members refuse to stick to their guns and have a clear direction or protect staff.

    I worked at Zonal full-time


    Relaxed hours Free Cereal and drinks Good people Great opportunity to work with some of the big hospitality brands


    Complete lack of direction from senior management. No one seemed to really know what they were doing Very much an 'old boys club' feel at director level HR dept seemed very inexperienced Not much opportunity for career progression Legacy systems are problematic, no real business interest in bring the tech stack upto date No documentation on anything, alot of digging through code to find anything out Alot of 'we're a family business' claims, but it couldn't feel further from that Really poor handling of covid. Basically ignored staff for 3 months then announced redundancies. I was unfortunately one of the ones made redundant, which I fully understand the reasons for - but the manner in which it was communicated, and the consultation process were really shambolic and left a sour feeling of the entire experience

    "Never in my 20+ years of experience I've seen so much development effort wasted"

    Former Contractor - Senior QA Engineer in Edinburgh, Scotland

    I worked at Zonal for less than a year


    Great office and location. Friendly, relaxed working environment. Most staff are helpful and friendly.


    High employee turnover. Absolute lack of direction and leadership . Project planning virtually non-existent.
