I have been working at US Investigations Services full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Work from home is great as is the ability to set your own hours. The company car is nice. If you are performing management leaves you alone.

Cons

Excessive work load that is just not reasonable. Having to deal with essentially 20 plus supervisors also known as review. Close to impossible metrics need to be met in order to get promoted. Leadership is useless/nonexistent it is clear that the bottom line is more important than the employees. If OPM says jump leadership tells you how high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop letting OPM run the company. Make the review process less confrontational, reviewers don't need to be dictating wording in a report.

    Current Employee - Field Investigator in Miami, FL

    I have been working at US Investigations Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part is the flexible work hours, however, some of those flex into 11 at night trying to meet the deadlines. Having a car, gas card, and insurance for a low cost to you. The people you meet during the investigation your conducting.

    Cons

    The job is not challenging after you have learned the basics. There is no room for advancement, which you don't want to be a TL, but you do want to be a Senior Investigator for the pay since you are doing the work of one. So the pay is not great and there are years without any pay raise or merit increase. The deadlines are probably the worse as you will have 10 cases all due on one day and you had 7 days to complete them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees to stay, not pay them to return. That was very offensive to those dedicated to the company.
