    Pros

    At this point, there aren't any. They do keep the costs down at the cafeterias for the call center employees.

    Cons

    Unrealistic deadlines, too many managers, no solid IT direction, the different IT areas do not work well together if at all and no recognition by management to the contribution of IT member in the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask yourself why you are losing talent. Consolidate management (1000+ managers and above)

    I worked at ADT Security Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers are nice to work with and get to know.

    Cons

    You are commission-only. They still demand you come into the office even while you are commission-only. If you do not generate 4 SGL's (Self-Generated Leads) per month, they will no longer provide appointments for you, and then you make no money, then they can let you go.
    Also, you are competing against Individual outside Contractors who sell the same product that corporate does. Except they can give more away for FREE and they get paid way more.

    E.g. a basic system from corporate may cost a customer $50-$99 (Wireless, 2 doors, 1 motion, 1 keypad, 1 remote) and the sales person can make $50-$75 commission;

    while with a Vendor it can be FREE-$99 (Wireless, 2 doors, 2 motions, 1 keypad... or they can work with the customer and rearrange the number of products) and the sales person will make $550+!!! Although vendors do not receive leads, you are competing with 'free' and more commission, and if you aren't getting your 4 sgl minimum per month you will not get leads with corporate either.

    Do not work with ADT at all, not even with vendors. Horrible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure commissions and stop competing with outside vendors.
