    Pros

    Small company
    recruit good talent from other similiar companies
    reputable company
    many different departments to "try" out
    many years of tenure across the existing staff

    Cons

    Benefits/ time off are not competitive- No short term disability
    Executive staff takes themselves way too seriously (reserved parking spot, water cooler only in executive wing) no cups for water or coffee for the rest of the staff
    Penny wise pound foolish
    front line employees not recognized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attracting good talent is more than "stealing" managers from other companies- look inside to recruit and promote from within- remember your people are your best resource and it is important to find ways to retain talent. Vacation time is a huge stinger

    I worked at Guardian Protection Services

    Pros

    Fantastic support, they do a great job of educating their employees. Instead of just firing low performing reps, they ask what they can do to help, provide all the support and information a rep could ask for. I don't know about the rest of the offices, but the office I worked in was really run well, great communication and support, nice incentives.

    Cons

    Commission plan was never clearly explained, and was very convoluted and complicated. They give you a commission plan, but there are so many variables, it's tough to calculate your pay from one sale to the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the commission plan, and streamline it. Make it easier for your sales team to figure out how much they can expect to earn from one sale to the next.
