    Pros

    Generally easy work. You get paid to sit, walk around, and stand around. Beats factory work.

    Cons

    Should be named "good ol boy security services". Clearly runs on the good ol boy network, and clients notice! As a floater for the company I was disgusted traveling to different sites to see if the site was undesirable. low paying, or in a bad area it was full of minorities, while nicer sites, and higher paying sites where always white; with the minority on 3rd shift of course. Promotions, or good opportunities, go to friends and family members of the Op managers. %100 about who you are friends with. "Dare to be Great" is a joke. I Dared several times only to receive negative responses from supervisors and managers clearly trying to live out some military command fantasy. i.e. they can't handle someone with a better idea then them. Truly a shame. Also, Op managers have no clue what going on in the field. They hide behind the floaters who are expected to learn 15-20 different jobs for the compensation of one. Clients definitely notice this company's practices, which makes it very embarrassing sometimes for the "Security Officer"

    Advice to Management

    -Op Managers need to get involved and not hide behind floaters and their desks. -District Managers need to be accountable for Op Managers. -Site Supervisors need to clearly understand we are not the MILITARY! and treat their workers with the respect every civilian worker deserves.

    Pros

    If you have a great manager you can learn a lot and potentially advance.

    Cons

    Advancement is directly related to who you know or who likes you.

    Advice to Management

    Begin true succession planning and give highly skilled people the ability to prepare for the next level.
