    Pros

    There is room for advancement for anyone who is already skilled at providing security services in a customer service arena. This is a company that takes advantage of entry level candidates often to the detriment of customers. Experienced employees are given carrots, and attaboys, until it serves management better to replace them with novice replacements.

    Cons

    If you are novice you already have an EDGE over management. Beware of ill-advised directions, unlawful licensing practices, and in-fighting between managers trying to best each other rather than serve customers and assure compliance with law (regulatory and employment). There is so much room for advancement that you can easily advance beyond your skill set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire only experienced management familiar with the state jurisdictions they work in. A HR manager experienced with Pennsylvania employment law may overstep authority in Oregon or Washington. Field managers are under such pressure to produce paper that they are forced to punish employees, even if unwarranted and contrary to state and/or federal laws. Raise the bar for management.
