    I have been working at IPC International (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Don't think there are any pros to this job

    Cons

    The wrong people get promoted its not merit.and once they do get promoted there friends and them take full advantage of it.both supervisors and their buddies stay in the office while Dops is gone.You to havre fight to get hours.people who should've been fired along time ago aren't

    Advice to Management

    Come to work unannounced and watch your current supervisors and their buddies and their visitors and dates they bring


  3. In the beginning of my employment with IPC I loved the company, but my last few years have been negatively challenging.

    I have been working at IPC International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was afforded a unique opportunity to be of service, on many different levels, to the community and the public in general. I also enjoy working with such a economically, socially, and professionally diverse group of people. I also enjoy my role in relation to the various groups of Public Safety, i.e., Police, Medical and Fire and Rescue Departments.

    Cons

    I found it very difficult to be treated as though I am just another body used to build their bottom line. I feel that the work environment is very cliquish and promotions, pay raises, schedule request, and any favorable benefits are not awarded based on merit. Loyalty and respect are commanded, but not given.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard and close look at those that you place into authoritarian positions. Try beginning with professional work ethics, integrity, and character as opposed to friendship, looks, and butt kissing.

    I have been working at IPC International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting people, working eight hour shifts with little to no overtime.

    Cons

    Walking for 8 hours continueously outdoors in All types of weather. Management rarely does what they say. Tells you one thing and does another.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say.


  6. More worried about bottom line than providing quality Service.

    Pros

    Company was great at the beginning. Really got bad in the last 5 years. It was all about profit, profit, profit.

    Cons

    Company will no longer be in business as of January 2014. Many clients that were loyal to IPC are now on the fence as to staying with Universal Protection Services or not. Forced Directors to manage additional accounts. Unfortunately, several of the executives who had this "profit only" mentality are now on board with UPS, so the mentality will not change. Director's meeting were always based on how to increase the profit margin, not once was any discussion held on incentives for Directors yet Regionals and above received commission based on how their group performed.


  7. Good training, but no upward movement

    Pros

    Training and flexibility with the schedule. Professionalism is good.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to advance, pay is lower than similar companies in the same location.

    Advice to Management

    Create more advancement opportunities, perhaps education incentives, or advanced training rewards.

    I have been working at IPC International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'd give you pros but I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Took away sick days, took away awesome insurance for bad insurance that doesn't cover anything. Field management spy's on employees, write ups for petty things that a verbal talking to would cover. Zero communication between management and employees. Pay raises are few and far between, didn't have a employee review in two years. Property company froze our pay because they went into bankruptcy didn't get raises during that duration and then when we did it was 18 cents. Increased starting pay to 10.45 an hour but didn't increase pay for people who had been there longer. Get stuck doing work that is not apart of my job description.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employee's decent wages for the amount garbage you make us do.

    I worked at IPC International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice environment, plenty of opportunity to help others.

    Cons

    Delusional and psychotic supervisors, you will lose your job without notice. Four of us lost our jobs all at once due to the onset of a new co. IPC had advanced notice and told no one until the last second.

    Advice to Management

    Try try please try to find some morals and ethics.
