Established Company, Startup Feel
It is a really great time to work at Z Networks. The company is well established (in business since 2001), and they have shifted into rapid expansion mode over the last few years. It is great to be at a place that has the benefits of a startup (tons to learn, room for advancement, everyone is important and has a say, etc.) without the risks many startups face (unproven market, financial instability, hard to establish credibility, etc.). It is also a privately held firm without the pressures of Wall Street or VCs, which is rare in the technology industry. The founder/CEO is super supportive and shares company success with employees through promotions, pay raises, and learning opportunities. Lastly, Z Networks tech support, IT consulting, and cloud services are very much needed in the small business market they target. The big boys like IBM have steered clear, and most providers are mom/pop shops that have a difficult time responding quickly and effectively to client needs. Another bonus of working with small business is getting exposure to so many different industries and getting to see how so many different clients make a living.
