    An excellent learning experience; however, a thankless job.

    Public Safety Officer (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsLearning how to deal with all types of people.
    Developing experience in deescalating problems.

    ConsThe contractor/client relationship places the company in compromising scenarios, especially in regards to the lower level employees.
    The company overall does not offer admirable health insurance plans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink more about the employees because they are a reflection of management. If employees feel more appreciated then they will be more inclined to maximize their potential as workers and develop better attitudes towards their job.

    Horrible Management

    Security Officer (Current Employee) North Wales, PA

    ProsPaid on time, nothing else, it is a very poor situation and I can not even think of another Pro for this company

    ConsThere is the feeling that they have their finger over a button waiting to sell you out to save themselves, it took 3 months to get my pay to the correct amount that they had promised I would continue with after the contract got carried over to them, they took out a holding fee on my uniforms and did not even give me the full set

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the lower members of your company, we work hard, look after us

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Corporate Offices

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Conshohocken, PA

    ProsAn energetic staff and collboration contribute to a great team atmosphere. The benefits are decent if a bit pricey but the work-life balance of most groups is great.

    ConsManagement is reluctant to address problem staff and weak players. High turnover may be expected amongst the officers but 50-60% turnover within IT in 2 years points to a problem.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShuffle the deck and bring in fresh management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
