    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.

    I worked at Zeiders Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Zeiders has a true mission of supporting Service members, veterans and their families. They have been doing this for over 30 yers and they are committed to this work. They are also commited to their employees. I left to pursue a different path, but I was treated with respect and quickly felt part of the Zeiders family. I was also aware of the fact that others felt the same way. My time there was a positive experience. This is a good place to work and grow!

    Cons

    I dont have any specific "Cons". The work was sometimes intense, but also rewarding. And I was never asked to do anything that the Leadership Team wouldn't do right with me. It seems that the management team is willing to roll up their sleeves and jump right into the work with the rest of us.

    I have been working at Zeiders Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stable company that really wants to help service members and their families. The people that work at Zeiders really make it special! I am not sure what some of the recent more negative postings are talking about with their work because Zeiders definitely cares, they treat people fairly and know what they are doing.

    The support staff are also very sincere about helping and they will drop whatever they are doing to help co-workers. The employees and leaders are predominately very humble. They work hard and are very caring. Many of them are fun too. This last year the company grew a lot and they are trying to stay connected with employees with those offsite. There are also more staff at corporate so they are trying to find little ways to find fun and connecting people like organizing a potluck cookout before Memorial Day.

    The benefits are pretty good. The medical, dental, etc. is pretty standard but they try to find little extras like discount programs for employees and they keep adding something new for employees each year. They completely pay for short term disability, the training programs are really strong and the leave accrual is better than I have seen in other companies.

    Cons

    With a lot of growth, they are trying to make sure the systems and internal processes still work as efficiently as when the company was smaller. The good news is that they are looking at it but it can be hard to keep up with changes and communication, especially if the information is not in your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees towards process improvement but don't forget to listen to all the happy people too! Celebrate and share those good stories. Find new and creative ways to share the really good things Zeiders does so it is not missed with too many emails or lost on the intranet home page.

    Pros

    Company provides a great service to the Navy community!

    Cons

    Salary is abysmal- most employees hold Master's degrees or higher and earn entry level salaries, very little direction or training program, receive different directives from different managers that never equal the same conclusion. Government employees in similar positions such as Marine Corps civilians receive better compensation, better benefits package and better training/management.

    Pros

    I haven't found anything that great.

    Cons

    Poor pay and benefits.
    Treat you like a number; don't care about you.
    Will cut your hours so you don't fall under a full time status in order to avoid paying health insurance and other benefits.
    Want you to be very loyal to them but it's far from a two way street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are too entrenched in the federal government system; it has rubbed off. Not hopeful they will change.

    Pros

    No commute. Virtual. Telework. Telecommute. Work from home. A job. 50k plus limited benefits and holidays (which you dont actually get). Company provided equipment.

    Cons

    If you have already read the other reviews and the HR responses that were canned, limited, and from left field, that should give you a clue about the government fraud that Zeiders is. Zeiders is a sham company with more than 30 years history of winning contracts and getting better at talking a really good game. In the end, what they actually do is short change our military from getting much needed services. After 30 years Zeiders still doesn't know how to get effective management in place, treat their employees well, or implement training among other things (yeah government fraud and abuse team!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step down. Hand the contract to another company who knows what their doing, values professional employees and respects our military.
