    Pros

    A job here is better then having no job.
    Most sites are easy to learn.
    Lots of free time at work.

    Cons

    Higher management doesn't respect the officers. They are all about getting people hired, after that they do not care.
    I have personally witnessed my manager make the work lives of 5 officers harder in hopes they will quite.
    Not school/military friendly (depending on site).
    Hired an employee that could not pass background check, just to get an account.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect and help the officers.
    not lower hiring standard to get an account.
    make training standardized. I had different training then my fellow officers.

    Pros

    They don't have a weird name like Wackenhut.

    Cons

    Senior management prone to dishonesty. They will appease new clients by offering the illusion of carrying over requested employees. They then offer said employees unreasonable pay cuts (-50%) in order to place others in their place at a lower (yet more reasonable) rate, thereby increasing profit margins and giving the client the illusion that they are accomodating requests. I've witnessed them lie to clients and employees. It makes me sick to be a part of such an underhanded organization. I'll be leaving as soon as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A different business model might help you sleep better at night.
