    I have been working at New Horizon Security full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I like being outside of a traditional office. I have great customers. I like that New Horizon supports my development with training and they are investing in technology that makes it easier to do my job and my customers like it. they recognize employees in the employee newsletter and we get rewarded (in addition to pay) for helping out or having nice comments from customers.

    Cons

    Communication is good but probably could be better. Sometimes I don't know about changes before they happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for making respect part of our culture. I would just say communicate earlier and more often.

    Pros

    This company has great values. It is hard to find a company that actually cares for their employees as much as NHSS does. They seem to take an interest in their employees and continually invest in their employees to help improve their performance.

    Cons

    None that I have found so far. Of course, more pay, more benefits, and more perks would always be awesome. Disney trips for everyone?!? :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at New Horizon Security full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It gave me a reason to get out of bed until a better security job opened.

    Cons

    The pay and micro management of staff is unbelievable. I would not recommend this company to anyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop low balling contracts like the DMV and promising guards good pay.

    Pros

    nothing really. Maybe the pay if you are desperate, it's a small company so growth is limited. The owner micro-manages everything, so look forward to that.

    Cons

    The insurance used to be free, not anymore. The training used to be free, not anymore. They usually get contracts by lowballing and paying the officers really low salaries. The turnover rate is really high. They never stand behind their officers. They talk about a balance in customer service and security, sometimes people act like idiots then complain about you. Just the nature of the job, warning don't do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop babying people with a kindergarden point system.
