    Pros

    If you're willing to seek answers on your own you can learn a ton from this company.

    Cons

    Management was rude and unhelpful, training lacked relative material, culture of the company was extremely poor, pay was non-competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to invest in your employees to reduce turnover whether voluntary or involuntary, Quality should always exceed Production.

    I worked at Safeguard Properties (more than a year)

    Pros

    OT, Co-workers. That's all.

    Cons

    • Outrageous Insurance Rates
    • Unrealistic Goals; numbers over quality, but don’t skimp on quality
    • Unfair to Vendors: No Error Variance, constant refusal to pay
    • Intense pressure resulting in unhappy employees
    • Ignorance to actual loan review
    • Assistance hard to obtain
    • Coaching is not training.
    • Personally, Safeguard has taken a toll on me mentally, and physically. My self-esteem, intellect, and outlook has all taken an extreme hit. They should feel shame, but their soulless. Some problems felt alleviated the moment I received my personal items after termination

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, sins over virtues.

    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

    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.
