No opinion of CEO

I worked at Protection 1 full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good groups of co-workers. Lots of holiday events/giveaways. Pretty good bonus structure. Nationwide sales contests. Sunday's off. Paid vacations, which is hard to find in the industry

Cons

Micro-manage. Lots of paperwork which is expected with a sales job but it's redundant at this place, has to be 4 copies made for others in the office. Have to use your own vehicle but do get a comp back on gas.

Advice to Management

Let the sales reps do what they need...sale. To much office time and micro managed paperwork

    I worked at Protection 1 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    National company, some really good people who have been around for years.

    Cons

    The company followed the pack and hired a bunch of college kids to knock on peoples doors and pressure them into buying alarm systems. The old P1 would never be in this business and long time "adult" sales people can't be happy with this direction.

    Advice to Management

    Why are you still there - isn't it time to sell to ADT already?????

    I have been working at Protection 1 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    National Company.Great industry to be part of. Like most companies has good people.

    Cons

    Terrible work environment under CEO . Pay is down across the board. Morale has been low since new owners in 2011. Service will struggle with cutbacks and lack of training on products. Competition is eating them up and they are clueless to stop it. P1 lost customers under new CEO for 2 years , could have been increased with right management.They have simply done everything they can to cut costs. They also have a mandatory sales quota for service workers that should scare customers that need a service call(the guy has to try and sell you something instead of fixing problem)

    Advice to Management

    Sell it low and get out before the whole thing falls apart. We all know you are flipping this like a bank repo house in a bad neighborhood.
