  2.  

    ISA seems reputable at first, they have unhealthy antagonistic relationships with their employees.

    I worked at Internal Security Associates full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this company. One of my co workers wife was in the hospital having a baby and they would not let them go.

    Cons

    Management do NOT care about the health and well being of there employees. They text you at 9:00pm and expect you to adhere to a schedule change in less the 24 hours. They have not given me my last pay check. Still waiting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be good to your employees and you'll get better performance. We are not a tool. Be respectful to people and give them legal notice and pay your employees what they deserve.

    Pros

    They'll hire anyone with a pulse and a DD214
    A monkey could do the job

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement
    No potential for career growth
    Unstable hours, get scheduled for 28 hours one week, then 60 the next, and it's always last minute scheduling.
    And after leaving, you won't get your last paycheck without taking them to court for it- but the CFO will email you repeatedly telling you it's in the mail... It's in the mail... It's in the mail

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your jobs instead of phoning it in and wondering why everyone hates working for you.
    You're not constantly hiring because you're growing, in fact you're losing contracts, it's just you can't go a week without someone quitting

    Pros

    consistent work, and easy job

    Cons

    hours can be erratic if you're willing to work overtime, but you'll get your guaranteed 40 a week on a regular schedule with decent starting pay for what little work you'll do.
