Good could have been great

G4S Security Officer (Current Employee) Manchester, England (UK)

ProsA nice place to work depends on site and assignment. Meet some amazing people that make up your team. There is a relaxed approach to work and alot of the time just consists of keeping an eye on an office building

ConsWhen you start you will get the whole hoo haa of amazing support training and opportunities to move up in the company. these are basically so rare you are more likely to find a dinosaur in your garden. You have to push your manager to give you training courses, and the 24/7 call out expectation is rubbish

Advice to Senior Managementkeep on top of your workers, you have so many that have huge potential that is just drained away because of lack of training and opportunities to move up

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
