    Pros

    Secure-24 is a fantastic company with many opportunities for smart technical people. Employees get to touch so many different types of technology. Overall, it is a great group of people to work with.
    In spite of a couple of rough months at the end of last year, some management changes have been made and the culture is still strong. I have to say that I truly enjoy coming to work every day.

    Cons

    Because we work in an extremely fast-paced environment, it can be difficult for some individuals to keep up the pace. The company is still "young" and as a result there are some growing pains.

    Pros

    At Secure-24 you will join a highly energized team and a fast growing company. You will learn many new technologies and have the ability to expand your knowledge everyday. There are great company/family events and the health benefits are absolutely fantastic.

    Cons

    The cons are positive. We are a growing company so there is a need to always renew/refresh policies/procedures and technology. What was good 6 months ago can become antiquated or inefficient very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of the same! There has been a recent re-org and the company is re-energized.

    Pros

    If you are willing to put in the time, you will be rewarded. Great benefits and love the flexible schedules. The intensity of the Executive team is contagious. Although the Founders have moved on to the Board of Directors, the new Executive team is about planning and acting on that plan for Secure-24 to be successful. Very excited about the years to follow.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a 9 - 5 job, Secure-24 is not the place for you. The environment requires a bit of flexibility for individual contributors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency drives results. Focus on planning and making sure we act accordingly. Middle management needs to promote their team, to many of the management want the accolades or needs to be the guy/gal. Continue the leadership training will really go a long way for our organization.

    Pros

    It's very much a 'get the job done' type of atmosphere. There is a laid back work environment, but the general idea is that you need to be able to deliver and work hard at any time, sometimes put in some unusual hours...or you won't be around for long. If you're the type that can't handle that atmosphere or are a clock watcher, it's not for you. I've seen teams pull together and solve problems and support each other to get issues resolved...compared to other companies, where the same situation would either turn into a finger pointing game or a drawn out political tangle. The hiring philosophy tends to focus on getting people in the door that have the potential to grow, which I enjoy much more than working with people who are stuck in their role or burned out from years in the same position. It's nice to work with people who are enthusiastic about sharing knowledge at all levels, rather than guarding it in their own personal silo for some sort of psuedo job protection.

    Cons

    The hours can get a little intense and the on boarding is a little rough around the edges. There's a fairly fresh middle management group so they're still shaking out some processes as the company has gone through fast growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to keep the atmosphere in place that helped the company get to where it is today.

    Great place to work- Had 3 competing offers for my services

    Pros

    I have been here a little over 7 months and so far it's been great- The company is small enough where they allow me to think outside of the box and present new ideas but also large enough to manage some of the worlds largest companies IT needs. I had 3 offers for my services and narrowed it down to Secure-24 and one other. I think I made the right choice.
    It sounds like the complaining in the other reviews are disgruntled employees but I have yet to see what they didn't like (or at least the extent that they talk about) regarding this place.
    I came from another local company that specialized in "online contests" and can tell you that Secure-24 is light years ahead as far as letting me run with new ideas. As far as sales goes, what can I say. I am an engineer and they sell the stuff. We are never going to always agree. It was the same at my previous two employers but we need them and the ABSOLUTLEY need us!! It's only been less then a year so far but from most everything I have seen/done I am very happy with my choice and I hope I can say the same thing 12 months from now. BTW-not many companies pay 100% of your medical insurance coverage and I have a wife and 2 kids that I don't pay a dime for!

    Cons

    Sometimes have some long hours and I think we should be compensated better for "overtime" as putting in 12 hours can be tedious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As your company continues to grow make sure you are putting qualified leaders into leadership roles.

    Pros

    Employees are encouraged to bring their natural talents with them, the culture is VERY accepting and the environment is open to new idea's and people who think for themselves and who have a positive attititude. It's a Flat organization which means you have access to everything up to the CEO & COO their door is generally open and willing to listen.

    Cons

    Growth within an emerging company can take different path's, it's sometimes difficult to keep the momentum and service going in the same direction please keep what you've done in the past going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the benefits, all that you do for the people of Secure-24, the community and for the State of Michigan. Keep it up!

    Pros

    Solid people, great technology. The balance between hard work, learning, mentoring and fun make it different than the usual IT gig.

    Cons

    Fast paced, requires lots of focus, but for those that learn fast do well. Sales are a bit varied in terms of what was sold, engineers in turn scramble to save the day
