    Pros

    Supports diversity and inclusion. Good benefits and fair compensation. Company is undergoing much needed major restructuring. With that comes a layoffs, re-organizing and hiring of new talent. Seems to be working so far. Time will tell.

    Cons

    Any major re-structuring, if well-planned and executed is painful and takes time. Seeing people lose their jobs is never pleasant. At least the new leadership is being as thoughtful, considerate, and generous as can be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and don't let the new management slip in to the habits of those before them, cronism, silos, and personal agendas. Ensure the new management have a way to maintain a dialogue with individual contributors to track progress against objectives, keep everyone honest and sustain a delighted, positive, productive workplace.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits; HQ office located close to freeway; Security industry is poised to grow and so stock should do well.

    Cons

    Opportunities for growth are limited. Merit is NOT the top criteria for middle management, connections matter a lot. Company could do better in the Storage space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide promising career paths to lower level employees. Currently these are severely curtailed, especially at lower levels.
