Overall Satisfaction with Zend Framework

Zend Framework is being used for the development of websites consuming an API.
  • It has a decent service container
  • Very configurable to make the framework do what you want
  • The routing configuration is very painful to use. Seems like it was thrown together.
  • The framework is very heavy, and sometimes confusing with how abstracted everything is.
  • This was out of the scope of my position at the company. I did not have access to this type of information.
While Zend Framework is similar to Laravel and Symfony, and seemingly more popular among businesses, I feel like it is harder to use compared to these two. Laravel and Symfony seem more friendly to the developer in terms of documentation and ease of use, though Zend Framework isn't too far behind and can be more powerful.
