    I have been working at G4S GS as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Security clearance... A chance to network with DOJ employees and find an opportunity to move on...

    Cons

    Management is hiring left and right! It has clearly become an quantity versus quality enviroment. Personnel are being hired just based on the previous law enforcement/corrections/military background, not wether or not if they've seen the football since the kickoff... And not mention some clearly need to pull themselves away from the table. Recruiting is consistently and continually lying to future employees about the job. There is no longer any overtime and if there is an opportunity for it, it slim and far in between. You stand post for 12 hours with supposed to be 3 fifteen minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch break, if your lucky... This job leaves a lot to be desired... Could be an awesome place to work if management and the client cared more...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and really look at your management! Some have no business being in the positions they are in...

    I have been working at G4S GS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chance for overtime. It used to be 20 hours a week. Now 8 is usual.

    Cons

    Management is hiring right and left to minimize the overtime currently but the 12 hour shift format makes it difficult to totally eliminate the overtime. It is difficult to work as a contractor for the government - we are looked down upon by the in house staff (although we make more than them). The union is ran as a personal money-making business by the founder/rep - it is not for the benefit of the workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some basic leadership.

    Pros

    Good reputation for security services; however, the company employs primarily transient employees. There are too many subsidiaries, policies and procedures are lacking. Generally a good reputation for security services.

    Cons

    The company has a lack of corporate leadership and values.
