    Great place to work.

    Analyst (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsThis place is full of honest and good people, who are committed to their jobs yet open to discussion of new ideas.

    Also, Call Centers are located within the campus, so you get a good sense of diversity and reality.

    ConsIT change processes are a little muddied and difficult to follow, but intentions are there, and management has strong technical ability.

    Vacation benefits lack. 2 weeks/year for the first 5 years, but this does not include sick days. This of course seems to encourage folks to play hooky!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe aware of how the business culture is changing. Lots of long-term employees can cause a stagnant culture that has not progressed with the times.

    Broadview Security - Excellent for contact center workers, disorganized at upper levels.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Knoxville, TN

    ProsBroadview Security (formerly Brink's Home Security) is an outstanding work environment. The employees and supervisors all maintaina positive working relationship and there is a great sense of "team" within each group and department. The benefits are comparable to similar organizations with reasonably priced health, dental, and vision benefits. Employees are provided with adequate time off and the company has a flexible attendance policy. Compensation for call center employees is slightly better than most in the area. In addition, there is a clear career path for contact center employees to develop via a structured training and development program.

    ConsAs is the case within many companies, information is generally poorly communicated. Conflicting information is often delivered to front-line employees and revised several times over a short period of time.

    Compensation for exempt level employees is below average for the market.

    There are insufficient opportunities for exempt level employees to progress and grow professionally at some locations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe appearance of disorganization and poor decision making often frustrate employees at all levels of the organization. The best advice I could give would be to closely evaluate the work environment for the front-line representatives and attempt to view organizational, policy, and procedure changes as they do. I would also encourage market studies to determine a more competitive pay scale for exempt level staff.

    Good Place to Work

    Outbound Sales Representative (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    Prosjob stability, working outbound you get to have the weekends off and you don't go home too late at night

    Consthe training program could be a little longer there are times that it seems rushed

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue to look for shining eyes, people who are interested and eager to develop (themselves) if needed and provide them with the incentives to continue their development

    A good place to grow, learn, and live.

    Start: Trainer. End: Web Developer (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsBrink's Home Security allows employees who put forth effort to grow in their knowledge and careers. The management is willing to listen to their employees and often asks for additional ways to improve the company. The company is based upon a sense of integrity and taking care of their customers and has been steadily successful with that approach.

    ConsBrink's Home Security compensation is not in its pay. If a prospective employee is focused more on immediate income than the opportunity to gain new skills and experience, then they should look elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue what you are doing. Because of the focus on improving the skills and experience of your employees instead of hiring the most expensive employees you can, the company is creating loyal employees for reasonable periods of time. (3-5 years). The culture will keep some of those employees for longer while allowing other employees to respectfully leave in search of more financial compensation, but with Brink's as a happy memory on which they would return.
