  1. Jay’s strengths are his integrity, his transparency and his passion for what he is doing and the company. His authenticity and commitment raise the bar for the rest of us working here. If he, with his wealth, success, and many years is still coming in and giving it is his all, how can I do any less? With Zenefits, Jay did not come to “get a ring”, he came to turn around a difficult situation which is a credit to his character and an inspiration to the rest of us that work here.

  2. Jay is a leader unlike any other. He came into Zenefits with an uphill battle, and has succeeded in turning our ship around from every aspect of our business including strategy and sales to culture and community. He communicates regularly, clearly, and prioritizes keeping employees in the know. There is no smoke and mirrors with Jay Fulcher, and for that I am truly grateful!
