    Pros

    they will tell you to your face how they want to promote you and get the most out of you and then discard you like a piece of toilet paper

    Cons

    putting up with their lies that they give you I mean look at all the other reviews do you think these people are making it up I doubt it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn your policies that you like to stress on your employees because hardly any of you know anything.you screw stuff up left and right you screw workers comp you put emails out on employees and inadvertently sent them to the employee you basically make yourself vulnerable for a million dollar lawsuit and then you get mad at the employee for following through with it. you know being a supervisor means being smarter than the people you superviseand caring enough more than just the bottom line your slogan for the company is"Dare to be great!"how can employ dare to be great when he's working for a bunch of foolish people who don't care about being great themselves?

    I have been working at AlliedBarton part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Higher salaries based on assigned contract and clearance.
    -Fairly flexible for part-time work.

    Cons

    -Most employees are here temporarily while transitioning. Very poor benefits. Many 60+ year old employees.
    -No clearance= minimum wage job. Dead end job with no outlook for increased salaries or promotions.
    -Low standards in general. Clearance positions have higher caliber employees.
    -Poor communication up and down chain.
    -No formal management training, so many supervisors are those that are full time or been with the company for more than a year. So far 2 supervisors have been removed for cause and were reassigned as supervisors at another site.

    Pros

    Its a paycheck, not much else

    Cons

    Poor management too many turnovers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure management know the site' and work with supervision on site' get your facts straight before going to the client. Train upper management to be team leaders instead of acting like superiors

    If they take over your site...RUN and I mean RUN far away to another good company.

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love my co-worker's,love my site,love the employees at my contract site.They treat us as their equals.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT S-U-C-K-S....My site supervisor doesn't address any issues that are valid and in a timely manner.We haven't even had our annual evaluations.No kind of advancement in the foreseen future,for anyone,just empty promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe if management acts as though all of security officer's exist and show us some gratitude for doing our jobs on a daily basis and sometimes going above and beyond.Maybe this company would get better reviews.I just feel that security companies DO NOT PAY ANY REGARDS TO THOSE SECURITY OFFICER'S WITH YEAR'S OF EXPERIENCE OR THE KNOWLEDGE OF THIS FIELD OF WORK.All the care about is having (A WARM - BREATHING - LIVE - AND SOME WHAT INFORMED PHYSICAL BEING PLANTED IN A CHAIR OR ONE OF THEIR VEHICLES.Tell me I am wrong!Because you know you are lying and you are just protecting a company or companies that follow the same familiar actions towards their security officer's.I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS OCCUPATION FOR WAY TO LONG...So if I can give anyone some good advice.STAND UP,SPEAK UP AND ALWAYS STAND YOUR GROUNDS...

    Pros

    The shift is easy to free up time to find better jobs.

    Cons

    The salary is a pittance. You're better off working for 6 months somewhere and going on unemployment. The benefits would ashame even the VA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your rates. And have some organization for a change. Your company is a laughingstock.
