    Pros

    Zeiders is a great company with a great mission. The company is growing under its new leadership and its making a great difference.

    Cons

    Delays in government contracting can cause angst to those who are not familiar with the way the government works; however, if you want to support Service Members and their family in a positive way this is the place you want to be.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the business and keep doing what you do best.

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

    Pros

    Was able to maneuver my work schedule

    Cons

    The boss is “best friends” with a woman there who is a manipulative bully. She manages to get everyone who threatens her fired. I watched as she black balled so many excellent employees from going on assignment because they caught her in lies from her constant disorganization. One day she walked in. Picked up three inch high heel stilettos and said “I have a private meeting with the boss”. Suddenly she is no longer a contract employee but a full time employee. I watched as the government was told they were being given one product and reality was the people in the field were told not to provide that service. It was highly unprofessional in the office. The only reason they keep their contracts has to be because no one has turned them in for inspection.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the government. Look deep at how one of your contracts is being mismanaged and the turnover rate with the woman harming so many and fire her.

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

    Pros

    None really. I have nothing positive to say except some of my co-workers were really nice.

    Cons

    Very racist place. They blatantly pay their African American employees less than they pay Whites for the same jobs and they harass their African American employees to drive them out.

    Management is horrible and only concerned with maintaining the plantation mentality of control more so than doing an effective job.

    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.
