Yikes
Tranzact Expert (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJuly 22, 2017
Hired on under one manager and ended up changing roles and having two different managers all within a three month span.

The managers don't take in constructive criticism or listen to what you have to say. When I put in my two weeks, they said I could just leave and did not ask any questions as to why I was quitting or if I wanted to change roles or what they could do to keep me at the company.
Pros
You have consistent hours.
Cons
majority of pay comes through RSU's which is a slick way of underpaying you, super drama filled culture where people like to talk about others behind their backs

Difficult environment over the last 12 months
Middle Manager (Current Employee) –  Boulder, COJune 12, 2017
Zayo Group has been hiring executives from it's competitor up the street for the last 12 months or so. The same folks that almost never turned a profit for the other company. The culture is going in the wrong direction in my humble opinion.
Pros
Peers are all wonderful people. Great location in Boulder, Co
Cons
Below industry average pay, no raises, little chance of promotion, bonus structure heavily relied on to provide the rare raise.

Not a place to work to advance your career.
Carrier Client Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 26, 2017
Zayo's culture has changed drastically in the last 2 years and has adopted the culture of Level 3 Communications to become stressful, competitive, and career killer.

Acquisition Overkill - Breaking down employee morale
Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington StateMay 21, 2017
At first when we learned that Zayo would be purchasing our company, I was excited about possible new opportunities. But in reality, the acquisition has only brought frustration, and confusion. Zayo has purchased too many companies in too short a time. If they were at all concerned about their employees, they would take a breather and get their house in order. It's not a happy environment at the moment. I hope it changes...the company has a lot of potential.
Cons
cut in pay for majority of staff after being acquired by Zayo, Absolute lack of feeling any sense of job security

Outside Plant Project Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 18, 2017
Zayo is a great working environment if you are able to keep up. Otherwise they will leave you behind. Micro-management is bad within upper leadership.
Pros
Fast pace
Cons
Micro-managing, work life balance, communication between teams

Productive and fun workplace with ping pong table
IP Network Technician - Tier 2 (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKMay 18, 2017
Pretty typical tech company. Fun, benefits, good pay, casual culture but definitely hard work and very competitive. Opportunity for advancement - growth and churn.

don't expect a raise... ever.
Salesforce Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Boulder, COMay 15, 2017
The compensation plan is the worst in the industry and getting worse for people below VP level. Zayo only cares how they look on the books to share holders. Pay is below average. No career growth, no promotion, no salary raise, not even cost of living raises. Take a job here if you must, but realize you'll regret it.

Lots overworked hours while pay is poor
IP/Ethernet Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Herndon, VAApril 2, 2017
There are two pay methods. Hourly and Salaried.
With the salaried options, I found myself at times over worked with a sense of being under compensated for the extended hours of work completed especially toward the end of the month.

As for the hourly, its a little more flexible since your are compensated for the actually hourly work, however depending on the hourly rate, you might limited by the fact that there is a preference to hire at locations of the country where the pay rates are relatively low. So if you are not from those types of locations, you find that you are competing with these low paying locations.
Pros
Plenty of network resouces
Cons
working from home reduces the chances for team bonding.

High paced workplace and great people
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COMarch 17, 2017
work can be high paced and lacks training. The work environment demands someone willing to self train. People with an entrepreneurial spirit will thrive here. You are free to do what needs to be done to finish your task. Process here is severely lacking but in a way that anyone driven will love

Work from home was at least 1 day a week and work schedule could be flexible enough to accommodate some of the minor personal items that pop up
Pros
work life balance, great people, relaxed work environment
Cons
lack of structure and training

Good place to work
Application Developer (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COMarch 16, 2017
If you are a new developer and looking for experience than I would definitely recommend Zayo group. You will pick up quite a few skills as you're expected to wear many hats.
Pros
Great people to work with.
Cons
The culture has changed dramatically since the IPO, and not for the better.

Hip, young company in an awesome location
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 16, 2016
Zayo hires a lot of young talent. It has a very modern innovative culture. Arcade games and ping pong in the office. Happy hours are pretty often. The pay isn't great until you advance up in the company. There is very high turnover and management is changing so frequently it's hard to earn promotions yourself.
Pros
Young, fun, hip environment
Cons
High turnover

Worked with peers that seemed to know what they were doing. Good location but very highly priced living, not matched by company.

Work hard, play h.. work harder
Service Delivery Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJune 12, 2016
Fast moving and ever changing. Not for the clock puncher, you're expected to put in extra hours to support coast to coast (& perhaps overseas) accounts. No work/life balance, unless you count time between emails and calls to eat lunch or dinner. An established company but with an entrenched start-up culture. If Zayo was a fitness program, it would be crossfit; join the cult, beast mode, go-go-go!
Pros
Cloud based systems enabling some remote (after hours) working.
Cons
Zayo IS your life.

very loud and entitled thinking company
GIS Analyst (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COSeptember 21, 2015
Sat in an open work space with loud and entitled 20 something year old people. Learned a lot about fiber optics and that it is the same a working for a natural gas company. The hardest part of the job was getting any kind of information and having all parities on the same page about it. The most enjoyable part of the job was when i left the company.
