    Some programs are rolled out before they are fully ready.

    Former Employee - Security Officer - Site Supervisor in Branchburg, NJ

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being a part of the team, either entry-level, or up to Operations, makes you feel special. The training program alone is coincidentally, five star quality. You are not one of the forgotten in this company. Protecting life and property means a lot to those who allow it to. They keep up with current times, and always plan ahead for the future.

    Cons

    You have to have a belief in yourself that you can handle any situation thrown at you, as is such in this industry. Sadly, that moment fails to appear when the moment strikes. It is not a fault, it is just being human. Some people can handle crisis, other chose not to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to not :forget the little guys" as they someday can be the new leaders the comapny will need as it moves forward.

    Pros

    Paid holidays, good work environment, great team members. Everyone has a good work ethic. Wages are fair and the job isn't too difficult. Most of the time you'll spend on your own.

    Cons

    Long hours. Can be a challenging environment. The job definitely isn't for everyone. You have to be on your feet constantly, which some people may not enjoy.
