As stated here, The tradeoff is usually compression size or speed. The default is level 6, you can drop that to 1 to make compressing faster at the cost of zip file size. You should also investigate where the bottleneck is -- it could be disk, memory or CPU. Usually compressing bangs on the CPU more so then disk or memory.
