    I worked at DGA Security Systems part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • You get to deal with a lot of important business people and have the opportunity to learn about what helped them to be successful, as long as they allow you to. • Pretty simple job, primarily a customer service position. • Paid weekly.

    Cons

    • Somewhat understaffed, so working more than part-time is usual. • Can at times undergo a high volume of people entering the vault, can be stressful. • Not very much room to advance from this position, unless you plan on staying there for years.

    I worked at DGA Security Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Nice Office Facilities, Almost everyone is a great person. Opportunities to make a good living (speaking from Sales perspective) but you have to put in the time to create connections and partners. Summer Fridays are nice. Get out at 1:30pm. Good Work/Life balance.

    Cons

    No room for career advancement. All of upper management has been there for 20 years+ and isn't going anywhere. Very stuck in the ways of the past. A bit of modernization would go a long way. A lot of unnecessary meetings and the Owner/President treats his adult employees like his grandchildren. That can be both bad and good....

    Advice to Management

    Create more managerial positions. Less micromanagement. Sales people should not always feel like their jobs are in jeopardy.

    I have been working at DGA Security Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great medical and dental benefits. Time flies by because of the amount of work. i get out of work at 4pm with weekends off and 9 paid holidays.

    Cons

    The job description you apply for is only 20% of what you will be doing. Your also a Maintenance manager, mailroom clerk, mail delivery service, laundry sorter, key maker, fire sign maker, tool box creation, installer are like wining children; so know that 1 portion of your job is actually babysitting and anything else asked of you. The company is not willing to make changes. They are set in their ways. Stockroom is a mess due to over ordering or ordering items that are never used but never returned either. Full stockroom is about 40% wasted space. Company also uses it as a closet for multiple people/departments. They are not willing to pay the amount for the actual job your doing.

    Advice to Management

    Use the stockroom for what its for

    Pros

    Stable company to work for if you're not a salesman. If you are a salesman then you better sell something in your first month or you're gone.

    Cons

    Management is old fashioned. Environment very clique-ish

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Certain managers have a stick up their rear end. And nobody likes to have a company picnic on a weekend! Ties shouldn't be mandatory. If we can conduct business with no ties on Friday then what makes that different from any other day? We should lose the ties.
