    I have been working at Zimmerman Associates full-time

    Pros

    They have nice Christmas parties....

    Cons

    They have and had several bad egg VP's and SVP's. Employee abuse was rampant. The heads of the company knew and did absolutely nothing about it, i'm not kidding...they had several people looking into lawsuits. Incompetence in the employees, the processes, technology...EVERYTHING. If you are low on the totem pole on the contract side you might be okay, benefits are terrible though. RUN, DO NOT WALK...the other direction. The former head of HR was an absolute terror ( it was scary and abusive)...she is no longer there, but boy did she leave the place in shambles. Do yourself a favor, work for another government contractor, there are plenty that wont cause you your sanity. You've been warned.

    Zimmerman Associates Response

    July 30, 2019Sr. Manager

    ZAI is disappointed to hear that your time with the company was not positive. As a relatively newly-appointed member of the management team, I have experienced during my 11-month tenure a good organizational management team that believes in respecting and appreciating employees, and equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to grow and be successful in their positions to support the company’s goals. The employees throughout the company are bright, energetic, trained on the latest technology, and work extremely well on project teams that deliver excellent results to our customers. Working in HR, I am fortunate to be able to positively affect our company’s workforce, as I work with a great team of HR professionals who are equally committed to listening to our employee’s concerns and taking corrective action to appropriately resolve workplace issues as necessary. We remain available to address your concerns.
