    Store director feels entitled to the time of all of his employees and has verbalized that several times throughout his time a time our store. He told us that we need to provide reasons for requesting off and if there were multiple on the same day from different employees he would use his judgement to grant the day off to the employee with the "best reason". There are also lots of women that have come forward and said that he has harassed them and he continues to get promoted and moved up in our company.

If you are a new real estate agent make sure you completely understand the commission structure, and take as many training classes as possible. Not every manager is able to mentor you.

Dysfunctional organization. Men receive much more opportunity and are favored. Grew too fast and now they don't know how to run the company.

Unfortunately MSG has a very "good old boys" mentality with little work life balance. They did just add a maternity policy of 12 weeks paid leave, which is great.

There are some great benefits and some wonderful programs to take advantage of, so anyone new to ZG should take advantage of them - zSpeakers, culture/events, workships, Lynda training courses, etc. Network hard. If you have a great internal network, it does make career development and lateral moves that much easier, plus, you will be happier here. The company is very social (as Spencer, the CEO, is active on multiple social media forums and encourages everyone to be as well). As such, the company is open and shares publicly their work towards improving culture and experience for women, and there is still work needed. If you have an issue, you have to be extremely vocal, loud, and basically the squeaky wheel to be heard and taken seriously (as a woman), but it eventually will be addressed if enough people complain (compared to men).

    It really depends on your role. Salary positions in non-sales/customer-facing roles have a lot of flex-time and accommodations can easily be made for these types of roles; however, if you are in sales or any customer-facing roles, this is less likely. Vacations (or any PTO time) needs several weeks' notice for approval; anything over 2 weeks needs VP-approval. There are no personal days - you have to use sick time. Several of my fellow team members don't get paid when they call out sick if they don't have sick time available. This is because of the PTO requirements.

    Maybe. There are a lot of microaggressions towards women in various roles and positions throughout the company, which can be not only frustrating, but also disheartening. These types of behaviors are things like man-splaining, exclusion (male-centric group team events/outings); communication methods favor men, lack of clarity on roles. There is a real glass ceiling if you try to develop your role and move towards promotion. Lack of mentorship. Male managers are less likely to help their female reports develop their careers and nurture talents as they are with their male reports.

The culture was very gender biased in the sense that mostly all of the drivers and top sales people were men.
