    Former Employee - Security Officer in Columbia, MD

    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
