Management was a road block
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAAugust 10, 2018
I did not have much opportunity to grow professionally.
I was micro-managed. My supervisor was condescending. The work environment was toxic. Things did not change when I voiced my concerns to leadeship.

Zeiders is not worth your time.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAAugust 8, 2018
I would never recommend Zeiders as an employment opportunity. Upper management has problems with blatant favoritism, and does not hold everyone to the same standard.
Pros
Flexible schedule, employee events.
Cons
Favortism, high turnover rate, etc.

Not great place to work
SARC/ FAP Victim Advocate (Former Employee) –  Goose Creek, SCDecember 6, 2017
Although I loved the actual job hated the fact the communication was very poor as was guidance was nil. You must be a strong self paced individual. Dont look at management to assist you with issues or concerns
Pros
Actual job was great, assisting people in need
Cons
On site Supervisors and Headquarter Supervisors

On Demand
On Demand Personal Financial Counselor (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, VANovember 10, 2017
Great company, paid CEU's for Accredited Financial Counselors but the huge downside is that on-demand jobs aren't always available. The three assignments that came up within a reasonable distance I couldn't take because I have another part-time job to keep me financially afloat.
Pros
Pay, Paid CEU's, great training
Cons
On-demand work isn't always available

Great job
Personal Financial Counselor (Current Employee) –  Fort Rucker, ALNovember 3, 2017
Great job with good benefits, like all contract positions its temporary nature is one of its downfalls. After working with the company for a few years, I have found that in general they are responsive to the needs of their employees.

MyCAA Program is promoting Fraud
Career Counselor (Former Employee) –  TelecommuteSeptember 6, 2017
Don't be fooled. This isn't career counseling; it's making sure corrupt, for-profit schools steal the $4,000 grant given to uneducated military spouses of lower ranked service members. Animal training on-line and client doesn't own an animal. That will be $4000.
Pros
Fellow counselors
Cons
Management; Promoting Fraud; Stealing from Military Spouses

Worked with dedicated coworkers, Learned about the challenges military personnel face.
In-Home Parent Educator (Former Employee) –  Coronado, CASeptember 6, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and working with military families, in order to increase their understanding of child development and age appropriate expectations of children.

One of the most difficult aspects of the job was the travel required, in order to meet individual families in their own home environments. The time spent traveling from home to home limited the amount of time to complete mandatory paperwork and documentation of visits.

A typical day at work included preparing lesson plans for visits with individual families, based on the needs of the family and ages of their children. The documentation and entry of reports and statistical data required a great deal of time on a daily basis.

I feel I learned a great deal about the military and the challenges faced by those serving and their families, especially when children are involved. While my gratitude to those individuals knows few, if any limits, I am also aware of the challenges it places on every member of a family, regardless of age.

While employed as a contractor, I found it somewhat difficult reporting to not only civilian program management but also to military personnel and their requirements.
Pros
Dedicated friendly coworkers, meeting and working with families, helping families get needed resources
Cons
Fulfilling the requirements of the position, completing reports in timely manner

Communications Specialist (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAAugust 27, 2017
On the contract that I supported, the management team was inept and had a race relations issue (I.e., white employees received higher wages than black employees, white employees were promoted even if they didn't have the credentials for the positions they were promoted into, large number of black employees were either forced out of the organization, because of being the victim of an increasingly hostile work environment, or because they were targeted by management and wrongfully terminated). Education and experience were not appreciated. Management team was threatened by personnel with advanced degrees and more experience than they had. I do not recommend anyone working for this company if you are a proponent of being in an ethical environment and with working with ethical people.
Cons
Unehical management team, undervalues employees of color, lack of leadership from HR team, worklife balance not afforded to all

Education Training Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 13, 2017
Contract work is unpredictable. When a contract ends, you do not know if you will still be employed. A lot of travel for little compensation. If you like to travel then it is great.

Not Reccomended
Training and Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAJuly 18, 2017
Not a company I would reccomend to anyone. Counselors do not get to utilize skills, provide proper services and follow up, or give accurate information to clients without consequences.
Pros
A job that pays money. Provided company equipment.
Cons
Very low salary, poor benefits, juvenile management, questionable ethics

Keeping up the appearance
Career Counselor (Current Employee) –  Columbus, GAJuly 3, 2017
Due to working on a contract, you must keep up appearances with meeting quotas. It is nerve wrecking for a counseling session to be recorded and evaluated not for the counseling quality but the quality of phrases are used. Management can bully you like you are a 3rd grader in recess. You will be patted on the back or rewarded for all the wrong reasons. Learning a new skill will be out of the question no matter what approach you take.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
being bullied is real.

Proposal Writer (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAMay 17, 2017
Wonderful company to work for, They just replaced the CEO and promoted from within. That individual is a good executive and very customer oriented.

In order to replace a significant contract loss they are bidding on a number of government RFPs at the same time. Consequently a staff of 3 people were working on five proposals at the same time with two more looming. Work.life balance suffered as a result with 65 - 70 hour weeks being the norm for almost a full year. However, it was necessary to sustain the company.

The nature of the work is important and the service providers and headquarters staff are a wonderful bunch of professionals.
Pros
Professional, friendly culture
Cons
Work life balance is a problem

Pros
Opportunity to travel nationally and internationally
Cons
Assignments are not guaranteed
