Current Employee - Security Officer in Laurel, MD

Pros

The pay is close to top of the line for security work. There are plenty of contracts which offer flexibility for shifts and work locations.

Cons

No room for advancement and the management almost always goes outside the company to hire someone, rather than promote within. Officers usually never get raises unless it's built into a contract.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within.

    Former Employee - Security Officer in Springfield, VA

    Pros

    Pay is above average than most unarmed place.
    advancement opportunity is there if you are good with management and other officers.

    Cons

    Advancement is not secure.
    You can get cut any time and go back to the bottom
    Better than receiving unemployment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more upfront with your supervisors and instead of cutting them or demoting them maybe offering them other sites and don't embarrass them.
    Other than that the company and business is ok. Just that. It's all business.
