Good if you're somewhat needy; attempting to make a career there not recommended.

Former Employee - Security Officer in Columbia, MD

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

Pros

Opportunities for advancement in the right places, relatively low qualifications for hiring (be 18/21 depending on the site, no outstanding criminal record), decent benefits package (at least, in theory) if you stay for a year or so

Cons

Work-life balance is a BIG problem - bigger if you get the wrong manager; client companies occasionally take advantage of the officers by requiring them to do extra tasks

    Decent supplemental income if you don't mind lots of walking or sitting at a desk

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    AlliedBarton is a good place to start as an officer.

    Cons

    When you are trying to move forward/up in your career someone is always holding you down. That is something that can come from above your direct supervisors head. Unless you have taken up a friendship with one of your supervisors who has friends is the best way to move up with AlliedBarton.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to evaluate management. If you want less turnover. Sit in on the interview process. Telling some what and where the jobs is, and if that a good place for them, does not mean they qualify for the position. Knowledge of expectations is what builds a great team. Also some people just aren't management material. Some of the managers just like to threaten others jobs, because that person thinks they have that authority. Personally I been shorten on my income since 2010. Not happy at all.
