    I worked at Zenefits full-time

    Pros

    Great for exposure to best tech and best practices when it comes to sales

    Cons

    Constant turnover, the company does not value people. I have never seen so many people hired and fired for the same position.

    I have been working at Zenefits full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Been working at Zenefits for over 6 months and have experienced a very rewarding opportunity to make a difference as my opinion counts and am heard from Leadership to Peers. The culture is very work/life balance driven and everyone gets involved in making the success happen. This company by far is producing options to clients that really streamline and create better efficiencies from employee level to C- Suite. From Covid-19 to the next new normal, Zenefits is making its mark across America and I can't wait to pioneer the functionality of what's to come! Great company and great Leadership and Values!

    Cons

    The only cons of this job is if you limit yourself. The folks here from Leadership through peers have opportunities that other companies do not think of in terms of pulling in the ranks they have today or looking outside as needed. Zenefits has a very uniqueness about what they are putting out to market and all of us here have the advantage of making our passion become a strength in the marketplace by enjoying what you do and aspire to grow within!

    I have been working at Zenefits full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In the 5 years I have been at Zenefits I have had more opportunity and room to grow than at any other company I've worked for. I've had career progression and training - I've gotten two industry certifications and a license since I've been employed - all of which were paid for by the company. Zenefits has invested in employees and allowed them to grow without an out-of-pocket cost. Plus, just the topics we work with on a day-to-day are learning in and of itself. If you want to become an expert on a topic for your team, you have the ability to do so if you want the extra challenge and raise your hand. If you do so, you'll open the door to other opportunities. I've seen people transition departments and create positions for themselves by doing this. There isn't a day that I dread going into work even with all of the ups and downs that I've seen in my time here. Yes, the days may be hard and long, but I always enjoy it. I've been lucky that I've loved every team I've been on and had good relationships with my managers. I feel like my company and team really care about me. We're a family. The ability to take time off and have a life outside work is great. Taking a day off (even if it's just a Mental Health Day) is welcomed and encouraged. Employees care about our customers and it shows. We're always trying to do the best for the customer and learn from our mistakes. New features and processes are constantly being implemented to make the customer experience even easier and better. The benefits have been wonderful. Flexible time off, paid maternity/parental/medical leave, catered lunch and snacks/drinks on hand, company contribution for parking/transit, and more.

    Cons

    Change is inevitable and it happens quickly here. You have to be someone who is ok with this (*really* ok with it, not that you just say you are in an interview) and keep a positive attitude when things do change. Depending on your department, you are busy. Working more than 8 hours/day can be a given and it can be draining and exhausting, especially if you work on a customer-facing team.

    Lots of opportunity for advancement. Great culture and collaboration. Management is willing to roll up sleeves to help. Love the transparency of the exec team. Pay is fantastic as well!

    Cons

    I worked at Zenefits full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They invest a decent amount in you. Whether it be from benefits to sales related courses. Other than that though, not much else. If this is your first sales gig, maybe worth a shot.

    Cons

    Management and Leadership need to get it together for the AEs. A lot of promises and no accountability. Not so great and iffy picks on sales leaders, some just cut from the same thread. Favorites get picked, doesn't fully feel like a team effort, and a lot of churn in sales employees. It's great if this is your first sales gig as an account exec, but much better opportunities out there. Inn the SDR, the same sentiment too (manager issues). Management needs to be sharper, good people, but not the right character except a few. Don't get me wrong place is allright but needs to get better leaders in.

    I have been working at Zenefits full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The reason I love working at Zenefits so much is because of the leadership we have, from sales team all the way up to the CEO. On the sales side, everyone is looking out for each other and want to see each other win regardless of what team or what position you're in. The sales executives and management trust us to do our jobs (rather than other leaders I've worked with at other companies who micro manage) and are very hands on, supportive, and want to help everyone get better every day. From the overall company standpoint they are very employee focused, transparent, and forward thinking. Not only that but it's a fun place to work, where many colleagues turn into friends, tons of fun activities, and never a dull moment!

    Cons

    Although we are a fairly mature company, we still act as somewhat of a startup. Being in a startup means things are constantly changing, and a lot of the times people are just trying to figure out what works, which may not be a fit for everyone.

    Pros

    Zenefits is a great place for career progression and growth. Leadership is always encouraging you to learn more and better yourself. There are multiple outlets for advice and tools available for you to succeed. Work/culture environment is welcoming, inviting and in tune with today's society.

    Cons

    Constantly changing as most SaaS companies do, so if you enjoy stagnant work environments this is not the place for you.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a modern HR Technology company which is really robust, then Zenefits is the place to be associated with. Transparency is the key and the leaders are so warm enough making this a true "Great Place to Work." Very flexible environment to work, good scope to learn and grow along with the organisation. Voice of every individual is heard and actioned upon. Good paymaster.

    Cons

    None to mention as there isn't anything
