    Pros

    - Involvement with many aspects of accounting.
    - good group of hardworking people.

    Cons

    It is the kind of place where you are going to have to work lots of overtime, be under heavy pressure, and be under appreciated. There are no yearly reviews or yearly raises and the benefits are mediocre at best.

    Former Employee - Security Officer in New York, NY

    I worked at FJC Security (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The salary was higher than other security companies.
    Security officers work at government sites and have the option to be transferred to other sites rather than losing their job in the event they accrue an infraction.
    Coworkers are nice from my experience.

    Cons

    Overstaffed meaning permeant schedules were scarce from my experience, which means you can be moved off your site abruptly or can be placed in a floating position.

    Staffing seems to be an issue here and staff members (supervisor etc) are rude because staffing is inadequate. You have to be tolerant.

    Advice to Management

    Fix staffing issues.

    Should visit the sites more. Make plans to where officers are off at least one day out the weekend for those who always request for a weekend day off
