    Advice to Management

    Excellent leadership from over the years. With recent acquisitions in the spree, surely will help to increase brand value in market.

    I have been working at Day & Zimmermann full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company for me. Has treated me well over the years as I've moved up the ladder. Not too big that you get lost and can't make connections.

    Cons

    No concrete ladders of advancement, but they are working on it. No employee benefits such as holiday parties, company-sponsored gatherings, or appreciation days like we used to have.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation for your employees. Without them, there'd be no D&Z.

    Pros

    Good open work environment.
    Not many layers of management and bureaucracy.
    Overtime available for those that want it.

    Job security was somewhat volatile.
    Working in the Kingsport office meant working inside Eastman daily.
    Facilities provided were not particularly nice.

    I worked at Day & Zimmermann full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, on-site staff know answers to worker's questions or find the answer if they don't.

    Cons

    Contractors are treated with less respect, given less fringe benefits, have fewer resources and have to work harder than the people who work the equivalent job directly for the company. They are usually not considered for positions within the company offering the contracts even if they have more experience and have worked with Day and Zimmerman a long time. This is not under direct control of DZ but it is worth noting.

    Advice to Management

    Make the Personal History Questionnaire process easier and more secure.

    Do not EVER send someone's social security number or other personal information over e-mail. Use an online portal like banks and other professional companies. DZ deals with sensitive personal information daily, it would be worth investing in something a little more secure and professional than sending PDFs back and forth over e-mail.

    Know the worker's schedule at the site they are working so DZ representatives are not calling contractors while they are at work to complete the background investigation process.
