    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Zeiders Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is way above average for the small amount of work to do daily. But, it is below average for someone in financial services.

    Cons

    - No opportunity for advancement since this is effectively a long-term temp job, since they are Federal contractors. - Co-workers have simple training that is required of Accredited Financial Counselors (AFC) in budgeting and dealing with credit. - If you are a financial professional, this place is a dead end for your career. You will have to explain to your co-workers simple financial concepts routinely. Benefits are awful.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on getting highly qualified people. Our service members deserve help from someone that can do more than just budgeting and credit repair.

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance. Supportive operations supervisor. Great in house training and systems. Opportunity for advancement with certification and laterals moves available.

    Cons

    Contract employment. Employment scheduling should include flex time for days when it is slow.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is important in any organization for management to recognize when it has rotten apples and instead of pushing them along in the process action needs to be taken. Zeiders needs to address those few bad apples in management.

    I have been working at Zeiders Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Virtual opportunities; provides all equipment needed; honors ADA

    Cons

    Lack of schedule flexibility; no professional development opportunities; lack of consistent communication; does not address employee concerns; does not use employer feedback constructively; provides mostly negative feedback, not positive; Keeps making negative changes to benefits

    Advice to Management

    Use the employee feedback to make improvements, don't only focus on positive comments because you will NEVER improve moral that way. The professional development offered on ZeidersU is a joke, it's only focused on current jobs, nothing to assist employees in improving their skills. Improve communication and make it consistent. Offer more schedule flexibility. Actually honor your core values and culture.
