    Pros

    Awesome pay good hours and vacation time was amazing. Room for advancement every 6mo.

    Cons

    there was a lot of unobtainable goals that could get you on a P.I.P. and stop you advancement. Also the supervisors are on power trips managers are awesome but very busy. Also you commonly find out after getting hire you are mandated to 10 hours of OT a week its a killer if you work second shift.

    Pros

    Compensation is great, the employees are great very friendly

    Cons

    All management starting with Supervisors, playing favorites among the employees, the point system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak with your supporitng employees and pay attention, these are the people who have made Safeguard Properties what it is today. The turnover rate is unacceptable. Realize property preservation is not a job for just anyuone.

    Pros

    I can't think of one positive thing to say about working for Safeguard Properties! The shoddy way it's run, low pay and bad benefits, negative and demeaning work atmosphere, unqualified and unkind management and extremely unqualified HR department all make this the worst place I've ever worked!!! Stay away!!!

    Cons

    Everything!!! This is the worst company I've ever worked for! Management, both males and females, subscribe to the "mean girls" school of management; if you make a mistake they demean and put you down for the remainder of your employment. Dealing with management at Safeguard (SPI) is like being back in high school; all of them encourage, participate in and facilitate typical behaviors such as backstabbing, lying and bullying. If you try to go to HR for support, you see HR is there to only cover up the unprofessional behavior and not represent or support the lower level employees. Confidentiality is a joke at SPI. Clients are snowed into thinking it actually exists. Clients should really show up unannounced and see what really goes on daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue as to how to: run a business professionally; at least pretend to give a crap about the people who make you money; hire qualified management who don't subscribe to the mean girls club of management; compensate the employees whom without there would be no Safeguard Properties; hire qualified HR people who actually know employment laws and policies.

    I worked at Safeguard Properties

    Pros

    Good benefits,some nice people. Some caring staff.

    Cons

    They make up excuses to fire people. No probation no formal rule not fair to everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So I was fired from safeguard and was given loan numbers, client contact information, and training materials. This is all against federal regulations. when I told HR they didn't care nor asked for the items so what should I do with all these people's personal information that Safeguard gave me?
