    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are great to work with. I really enjoy working with the legal group, but the other departments are hard to deal with. No synergy.

    Need new systems and processes. The company has doubled in size very quickly and the systems never caught up.

    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates part-time

    Pros

    Decent pay great Co worker's

    Cons

    Unorganized and uneducated site supervisors that don't have any part time people except for in armed gates and don't know one day to the next how shifts are going to get covered if an employee goes on vacation or gets sick and works all the full time people til they get burned out, very high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized people running your sites and make sure there is part time people because people have lives outside of U.S. Security.
