    Pros

    Less stressful than most sales jobs. General sense of family environment.

    Cons

    They outsource management. No room for growth. Un-Ethical in competitions between branches. No promotions from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop transitioning to an ADT mindset and business model. Look past the books (numbers) and find out how things are REALLY run in offices. And please think about promoting from within. Stop outsourcing your management positions! And stop hiring managers that used to work for ADT!!

    Pros

    Company is fantastic, Great Teamwork skills...Get to be involved in upcoming technology

    Cons

    Insurance plans are not where they need to be due to company being on a smaller scale, Pay is only for someone who is single and does not have a family, Each branch is its own world, so there is no corporate policy through each branch

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on all jobs at hand and do them as they come in and not hop from one job to another

    Pros

    Great management. Company Car. Treats the employees like family.

    Cons

    Limited support when opening a new market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less money on printed marketing material and invest in T.V. advertising. Stop wasting so much money on frivolous marketing ideas (i.e. signs, window sickies, door hangers)

    Pros

    Good company. The work is fast paced and never ending. However, most employees are fun. The benefits are good and the managers are reasonable. Everyone in the company is encouraged to voice their opinions. Employees are encouraged to enact change.

    Cons

    The pay is very low unless you are in upper management. The company does not like to spend money on employees. There are no opportunities for advancement and raises are minimal. The bonus program they talk about is impossible to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be better to say nothing about bonus programs than to promote programs that are impossible to achieve. This causes apathy with your employees.

    Pros

    Positive corporate atmosphere
    Growing, well respected in industry
    Proud company
    Not the largest but one of the most well respected firms in the industry

    Cons

    There literally are very few. If we were a bigger company, perhaps we would have more revenue and could pay slightly higher salaries, but that in and of itself is not a fair statement, because our pay is good and the opportunities to earn more are abundant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and keep treating us with the open respect that you do and we will continue to help the organization grow.
