Good reputation but no room for advancement.

Security Officer (Current Employee)
Laurel, MD

I have been working at Pinkerton Government Services full-time for more than 3 years

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

ConsNo 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 Senior ManagementPromote from within.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
