    Pros

    Decent pay...could be better based on the horrible work schedule alone! Not to mention the wear and tear the excessive equipment puts on your weapons belt but on your body. Oh and they are in the process of issuing each officer their own assault rifle to carry on top of a pistol, handcuffs, gas mask, pepper spray, flashlight, & 3 pistol mags.

    Cons

    Horrible Horrible Horrible upper management in the Security Department. You will not advance if your not a part of the "good ole boy" system..and can completely forget about if if your a WOMAN! Since the merger with Progress Energy things have gotten worse, which we didn't believe was possible. They have gone to a incentive based pay increase system, which again gives the "good ole boys" a way to push everyone out whose not a part of their BS and refuses to be!

    Advice to Management

    GUT the entire upper management and back office and restaff or you have yet to see the worse of your problems!
