    I have been working at Zeiders Enterprises full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The flexibility is key in my position. I am able to work remotely while still growing in my career. The company provides well rounded training and I am proud to serve our community of military spouses and their families.

    Cons

    Upward mobility in the company is difficult to obtain; there is not a direct promotion route.

    Pros

    Communication flow from leadership to supervisors to employees is excellent. Everyone is very available and responsive by e-mail, phone and chat. Even though employees are located all over the world, senior management makes a real effort to keep in touch and be available without driving us crazy with unnecessary ‘read this’ messages. Work serving military members, spouses and families is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Not really a con, just the reality of this type of work. The work is mostly on government contracts so there are report requirements and efforts to keep the customer happy that just have to be done. Leadership works hard to take on the burden of these efforts so the employees can work with the actual people we are here to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is excellent. Keep the focus on helping service members and their families.

    Pros

    TELEWORK! TELEWORK! TELEWORK! And helping fellow military spouses.

    Cons

    Management is terrible! No proper communication between call center teams. One Supervisor will tell you one thing and a different one another. If you have an issue with your Operation Supervisor, the Advisor and Counselor Services Leads do nothing and expect you to basically deal with it. Take it to HR and they tell ou to go back and just work it out. There are no defined policies in place. They cherry-pick who does what. Discrimination could be at play if you dont have defined policies for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually take action when employees are expressing concern. Stop passing the buck!

    Pros

    Opportunity to work from home virtually.

    Pros

    Telework available depending on the position. CEO seems to be out of touch with what really goes on in the various business units.

    Cons

    Reports and more reports. Lack of focus on what matters. Managers in positions where they're either incompetent or demand arbitrary reporting in an effort to please a vague government mandate. 401K sucks. Have to be invested through end of plan year, then get company matching finally added to your account sometime in March the following year. Health benefits mediocre and not too cheap. Not a "quality of life" company when you live in paranoia that you will be replaced by the next sucker to take the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The directors need to be exposed all the way up the chain for their corruption. .

    Pros

    Zeiders is a great company to work for - they follow the core values that they have set out. They appreciate their employees and make sure that they know they are appreciated! It is great at the end of the day knowing that you helped our military service members and their families.

    Cons

    None that I have discovered yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! The ongoing feedback I receive from my supervisor helps me know what areas I am excelling in and what areas I need to work on.
