    Pros

    Good insurance. Good 401k plan with match. Good coworkers. Fantastic team of in house attorneys who are very knowlegeable and always willing to help.

    Cons

    Supervisor is NOT helpful and is always busy with personal agenda on company time. Mgmt is unprofessional and covers for those who don't do their jobs. You will not advance in this company if you aren't friends with certain folks.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoring certain people and pay attention to what your employees say. Don't tell us how much money Zenith is making and then give next to nothing for raises when we are the ones making you the money.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Mature HR department that creates programs that add value to the employees. Great perks such as Gym and Cafeteria inside the company.

    Cons

    IT management provides no guidance and leadership. Lack of CIO leadership. IT management invests large amount of money on projects that are left unfinished or that cost more than expected. Little to no investment in training for the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training your people and keeping them up to date with new technology and methods.

    Pros

    Industry average pay and good benefits including rideshare incentives and cafe & fitness center on-site. Location is great with lots to do in walking distance. Most people have left the office by 4:30. Good place to gain experience in the worker's compensation space if you can find a good mentor, and there are some. There are opportunities to network if you take them.

    Cons

    Has done away with merit increases meaning if your pay is at industry average you're stuck there with maybe a percentage or two for an increase each year - seems you have to get a promotion into a higher salary bracket in order to get an increase. HR has a lot of rules and processes. Depending on the department your coworkers could be great or could be atrocious and make your life miserable. Meet as many people as you can that you will be working with before accepting. Systems are archaic.

    Advice to Management

    Merit increases are a huge incentive for employees to stay and work hard, especially when their position isn't necessarily promotable.

    Pros

    Financial strength and market share in CA anf FL

    Cons

    Local office executives are not in touch with with branch operational departments.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and dont let the HR department cloud your judgement and run your operation. Focus on the Zenith principles. Focus has changed from doing the right thing to strictly expenses.

    Pros

    The main pro to this company is the benefits package: they have a matching 401k, stock purchase program, wellness program and cafeteria.

    Cons

    The lack of upward mobility/promotions. There is a strong micromanaging culture.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should show a stronger presence and acknowledge/encourage consistently well-performing workers.


  9. Helpful (1)

    Horrible micromanagers that spends all their time bringing down their staff instead of supporting them.

    Pros

    The company benefits and office locations are good. The 'worker bees' are good.

    Cons

    Management is the worse that I ever worked for. They will target employees and call them out for the smallest things that have nothing to do with a persons performance. Then continue the constant scrutiny until they break you and you can't stand it anymore. I saw them target many of my co-workers, who were great people. They would target one person at a time and once they pushed them out, they would go after the next person. Unfortunately there is no where to go to file a grievance because upper management supports their department managers actions and your managers would know that you went to Personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive of your employees, instead of wasting your time always looking for ways to bring them down, try using your time in a way that would help the company and support them. You always smile and say you are there to support them, but your actions show otherwise. Appreciate the 'worker bees' they are the ones that make the company successful & leave your bloated ego at the door.

    Pros

    Working at Zenith you have the opportunity take pride in the work you do. Great support from CEO Jack Miller and most of the Executive officers. Market leaders in California and Florida.

    Cons

    The lack of turnover and relatively small size makes it difficult to advance. A very few bad leaders have been there a long time and are not held to an appropriate standard of professional behavior.


  11. Used to be a good place to work. Management needs to focus on employees issues more, instead of themselves.

    Pros

    Specialist company with a good reputation in the industry. Good coworkers. Ethical. Good benefits and pretty good salary

    Cons

    Recent changes in management and more demands on people with already very high workloads has taken its toll on morale throughout the office. Management plays favorites frequently and opportunities for advancement are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Put a strong focus on fixing the morale issues.
