Pros

Communciation flow is great from Leadership to employees
Ample visibility of decision process
Excellent work serving military members and their families

Cons

The salary for my position is acceptable but there is a "window". If not for agressive negotiation, I would have been offered a salary far below my education and experience.

Advice to Management

I believe that Zeiders has very capable personnel, and those who are there are employed with the company because of the work they do. I think Zeiders would do well to provide more personal/professional development opportunities such as professional certification training for managers.

    Pros

    Employees for the most part(not at corporate) are government contractors, so they do not work with Corporate directly. Due to this if you are placed at a good site the experience can be a huge plus. I am at a wonderful site where the GS and Contractors work very closely together and are treated no differently by the supervisors/directors of the site (all GS). The GS are very encouraging of enhancing knowledge and bringing it into the work place. There are many things where the GS hands are tied when working with the contractors due to the government contract and rules. Zeiders supervisor is very supportive and is kept very busy supporting the local employees. Corporate has its pros by responding to inquiries and providing pretty good benefits to its employees that some government contractors do not. Also, employees have a better chance of transferring with their job as military spouses if their are positions open in area they are going. They are also very supportive of employees needs if there is illness, family emergencies, etc. Of course the Client Site needs to be of the same belief which the site I am at is.

    Cons

    Zeiders does not recognize employees for the significant work and going beyond the job requirements to meet the Clients needs. Pay raises should be based on merit and not just time in position. People should be paid for their experience when hired, not just based on "well, this is what we pay. Take it or leave it." attitude. There really is not enough feedback in the type of work an individual is doing for the client from Zeiders.

    Also, the company gives "gifts" throughout the year which is their way of trying to say thank you for your hard work. However, I know that many of those I work with would appreciate the money spent on those items be combined and given as a yearly cash bonus. Even if it was a $100...not alot someone can do with a huge umbrella with their name on it.

    Advice to Management

    Ask their employees for feedback on things. Recognize employees regularly that go beyond. The client would be happy to give feedback.

    Pros

    Zeiders offers excellent free professional seminars, supervision and the numerous consulting professional staff make themselves available by phone and e-mail.

    Cons

    Given that the corporate headquarters and management personnel are located in the Virginia/D.C. area there is occasionally a sense of disconnect, however, to their credit, senior management makes significant efforts to be available. Refer to the "Cons".

    Advice to Management

    Establish routine discussions among the similar providers at the various bases (time zones permitting) to facilitate exchange of best practice techniques/topics in addition to the more highly structured seminars noted above, refer to "Pros".
