I have been working at Wackenhut Services

Pros

Wackenhut pays much better in comparison to other companies in the security field. Job security is very stable due to the nature of the nuclear world and today's security requirements, job security is guarenteed to anyone that wants to work. The job is not that hard and you do not need a college degree to get in the door.

Cons

The job is not that challenging and can be very mundane at times. Twelve and a half hour shifts and a schedule that rotates is very hard on any family life. There is very little job recognition for the employees and very little control over your own year end bonus. (The year-end bonus is based on a group or team effort instead of the individuals effort.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your people more recognition and the ability to achieve through some sort of bonus/recognition program.

    Pros

    Better pay than other similiar type local companies. The uniforms allowance is decent also.

    Cons

    Management treates entry-level individuals like they dont matter. They need to have better health insurance. Training is terrible. There is little chance of advancement within the company at the local level. No encouragement by supervisors to contact anyone about other positions within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the entry level employees are what help you keep the contracts. If you would treat the employees with the same respect that you expect from them, adequetly train them for their particular positions, and allow them to do their job without micro-management, you would be surprised at the skilled and dedicated individuals you have working for you.
