    I have been working at Zero Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good place to work. The insurance benefits are good. China is awesome. It's fun work and most of the people are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Organization is what it needs. The communication between different departments needs to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to take charge and make sure all departments are working together instead of playing the blame game when something goes wrong.

    I worked at Zero Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are great people that work there. Most are concerned about the work that they do and care about the company

    Cons

    Management all the way to the top do not care about the workers. They have not given raises for approximately 8 years. They don't pay their bills which makes it very hard to get your work done. They keep managers that are terrible with employees and keep them only because they have tribal knowledge. They bring in people and make you believe that they will help fix the company but they are no better than those they have replaced. It's a very sad environment to work in due to how they handle their operations. Many managers and supervisors have quit as they are tired of trying to make things work with no success.

    Advice to Management

    Their is no advise to offer to a company that is not willing to change nor change their processes. They cannot keep quality people which means that their product will continue to suffer as well as more importantly their customers. Thankless work environment. Mike Jewel no longer works at the facility and the person they have in his place allows the managers that work under him to be dictators. No leadership skills.

    Employees are the key - feels like a family. Company has a long history in manufacturing some really cool cases and enclosures.

    The revolving door at the C-level has been somewhat of a problem. Too many changes at the top. Employees are often undervalued by Executive management team.

    I worked at Zero Manufacturing as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked that the President and coworkers were very friendly, when I did get to talk to them. Job was challenging, which I liked.

    Cons

    Felt like I received very little instruction on projects I was in charge of. Felt like I was stuck in my office all day without seeing many people, I guess that's just what a desk job is like, though.

    Advice to Management

    I think you really should get rid of some overhead. I felt like a lot of people were doing work that less could do. Really could look into better organization.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn about many different products. Many processes involved to knowledge base will grow a lot. The people in the front end are generally caring and can help much. High job turnover so always new things to work on.

    Cons

    Salary may not be distributed very fairly. Sometimes have a difficult time overcoming internal issues to processes. There seem to issues in many processs.

    Advice to Management

    It sometimes seems focus is too short term and on the bottom line. Invest in employees. Don't knee jerk react situations. Look at the processes and what really matters. Help people to work the processes to how they need to be and take their advice.

    I have been working at Zero Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Few, if any, positive aspects to this company. It used to be great but it has been bought and sold to too many times with immediate profit in mind and no real thought given to corporate longevity.

    Cons

    There is a problem with their commitment to quality and there is too much willingness to ship out known defective products hoping it will be accepted. There is doubt among many long term employees about the company survival. There is a widespread pessimistic attitude.

    Advice to Management

    What is the point, they don't listen or understand.
