    Pros

    Great benefits. Learned a lot while working there. Fantastic team of in house lawyers.

    Cons

    No upward mobility even though they promise there is. Upper mgmt only promotes their friends and or those who play the game. Supervisor was on the phone making personal calls more than she did her work or helped her team. Overall mgmt is not respected.

    Advice to Management

    None because it will make no difference.

    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

    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.

    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.
