Garda World High Threat Operations

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsA reasonable balance between work rotations, conditions of work average for the industry.
Administrative issues usually resolved quickly.

ConsNot quite fully established with the correct positions / understanding for the high threat division.
Regular problems with equipment supply and cost cutting due to company bid policy

Advice to Senior ManagementCorrectly establish the high threat division and listen to much of the advice given by those put in management positions. Centralising all decision making only leads to problems, there is little point appointing managers or supervisors when they are not allowed to make decisions, this is reflected in the attitude of those further down the line toward the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
