We’re proud to share that Zscaler was named one of Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Millennials. As a global tech company that’s growing rapidly and expanding our team, this is fantastic news. Congratulations to the entire Zscaler team!
As the Head of Employee Engagement at Zscaler, I lead a team that’s focused on embedding our unique Zscaler culture through communications, engagement and events, a robust diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) strategy, and other efforts to help our employees feel connected, supported, and proud to work at Zscaler. While we aim to be an employer of choice for people of all backgrounds and generations, we’re delighted to receive high marks from our Millennial employees and asked a few of them to share what they enjoy about working at Zscaler.
A common theme across the board was our strong culture of collaboration and teamwork.“In my 9+ years at Zscaler, I have worked with hundreds of people and many departments. Our culture really emphasizes collaboration, inclusiveness and valuing varied opinions,” said Nikhil Mittal, Assistant Controller/Senior Director of Finance, San Jose.
Doing challenging work in an environment that emphasizes learning is also a key motivator. “Working at Zscaler presents interesting problems to solve on a daily basis and the freedom to approach them in a unique and creative way,” said Luke Miller, Principal Sales Engineer, UK. “I’m never short of people who are willing to help and share their knowledge whether it’s my colleagues or our leadership team, who are always willing to spend time to help me become the best version of myself both professionally and personally.”
Daniel Raj, Sales Development Leader, Bangalore, appreciates the inclusion of different viewpoints to advance a common goal. “I’m part of a team where leaders from Australia, Singapore, Japan, and India come together on one platform. We are different in many ways but we all get the opportunity to speak and be heard, and we always think about how the broader team and our customers can win.”
The ability to be yourself at work unlocks so much potential. “Our culture allows everyone to be authentic and share in each other's successes. Every day we all strive to not only accomplish our team goals but personal ones as well,” said Kristin With, Renewals Manager for the Americas, Texas. Flexibility and autonomy are also top priorities. “As a working mom of two, flexibility is extremely important to me. Our leadership works hard to remove roadblocks and improve processes. I've never worked at a place where I felt this much support on a professional and personal level.”
“I appreciate the autonomy I have to manage my own schedule, and the hybrid work model that allows me to collaborate with colleagues in different locations and time zones while also spending time in the office to connect with people in person,” said Rohit Mehrotra, Sales Development Representative, Bangalore. “I also feel a sense of ownership and responsibility for the impact that I can make on the company’s vision and mission, which makes me proud.”
Lastly, giving back to our communities matters to our Millennial employees. “Zscaler’s culture gives us the autonomy to choose how we want to creatively contribute towards the well-being of our communities, nature and its limited resources. Volunteering and other meaningful engagements help to foster a sense of purpose, and meeting colleagues who share these interests is very rewarding,” said Swati Garg, Manager, International Payroll, Mohali.
Undoubtedly, it’s our culture that makes Zscaler a great place to work. But don’t just take our word for it… explore our open roles and come see for yourself why Zscaler is one of Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Millennials!
