    Pros

    Very Good Hours
    Friendly Staff
    Great Compensation
    It is a very good job, I wouldn't recommend it as a steady career. Very good starting point.

    Cons

    There is really no room for growth. Also, with all jobs, you have those who will stab you in your back to try to get ahead. If you avoid those kinds of people, you will be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more room for growth!

    too many turnovers lead to defunct businesses.

    great security company and benefits

    Former Employee - Security Officer in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Security Officer in New York, NY

    I worked at Andrews International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This company is established nationwide. As a result, many positions are available. I had a 401k and medical coverage with this company. There was also overtime! not a lot of security companies in New York City offer what this company offers.

    Cons

    In my opinion, the cons are very much the same as any security company... there is little to no room for growth or promotion, you are essentially expendable. If you are an ambitious person who likes to feel like their work is making a difference in the world, then you will not like working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good employer makes the employee feel as though they are treated with respect. A paycheck is not equal to a "thank you." A paycheck is merely a contractual obligation; you give a paycheck in exchange for work. Effective communication between a company and its employees can increase efficiency.
