    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 Management

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