    I worked at Zeiders Enterprises (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    work from home, company provided equipment, subsidized internet, some paid health insurance, federal holidays.

    Cons

    for a Master's level counselor, compensation is well below average. Accept that you are just there to cash a paycheck, look the other way when you aren't allowed to actually "do" counseling - that is; you are NOT to assist the client in making informed decisions regarding educational and career decisions. constantly re-inventing the wheel. management is petty. depending on whether management likes you or not, you will be "skilled up" meaning all the calls will come to you - which means that you will not be able to go to the bathroom. Systematic bullying - and no - nobody will help you - because they are only there for the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Management has too much hubris to accept advice.

    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.

    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.
