    Pros

    Almost all Officers are cool and like to do only the minimum to get by.

    Cons

    ABM play's with your hours and money. Your check is always short hours and employees always get told " NEXT CHECK " or " IT WAS AN ACCOUNTING ERROR . " You will be waiting FOREVER to get the money that was shorted to you and when you keep insisting on getting your money. you be told to " STAND DOWN " or " YOU ARE BEIGN INSURBORDINATE " or " YOU ARE BEIGN SUSPENDED FOR DISRESPECTING ME "

    Advice to Management

    TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES LIKE PEOPLE, NOT LIKE . TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED "

    Pros

    Flexible floating work options. FSD/EAP positions are set with industry competitive rates for licensed employees. Room for growth as an unlicensed but certified FSD. For security officers I know that they have an ever growing number of accounts that guarantees stable and continuous employment in multiple states.

    Cons

    Lost of job opportunities but low rate of returns for security officers. And raises is almost non existing. Benefits also sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Quantity is not always better than quality. If employees are paid fairly and trained well they will yield better services which in turn will set the bar for the quality of the company.

    Salary a little low. Office is a little disorganized. Communication between the office and the different sites is lacking

    Have the office and the different sites be more aware of the policies of the company.
