    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA

    Pros

    Opportunities to apply for jobs all around the country, if I wish to relocate and to get ahead even without advanced degrees.

    Cons

    Upper management opportunities for women are more limited although that seems to be changing recently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do better at keeping employees informed about how new initiatives are progressing. Often we hear about a "new way of doing business" once but not kept up to date on how such things are going. Are they working or not?

    Current Employee - Security Guard in Parsippany, NJ

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You should only work here if you are studying for school and still need to work with out any
    distractions.

    Cons

    Anything you do on this job can not help you get another job anywhere. Your Manager will move you from site to site for no reason and always favors "specific" workers. If you are not
    part of the "inner-circle" you will just be push out of a $10 Hr job eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to get real training and with out it they will just destroy this company because of constant turn-over due to nepotism .

    Current Employee - Customer Service  in  Parsippany, NJ
    Current Employee - Customer Service in Parsippany, NJ

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some co-workers that make the day go by well. They occasionally feed you (by this I mean left overs) You might be lucky to get a work shift that actually works for you.

    Cons

    The Manager of the NCC is a Micromanager
    There are more supervisors than regular employees
    The NCC manager understaff's the entire NCC for cost savings because they offer a lot of what you can call free services to clients
    The Pay is Horrible
    You wont ever see a bonus or a christmas gift/party
    They will never close no matter what the weather or situation you will be expected to show up, and if they get you there in a horrible situation they will pay for you to stay at hotel so that you can be walking distance to work and basically be a work horse for them.
    If you are looking for ANY employee appreciation this is not the company.
    This departments structure is broken from the Top down and you will feel all the fustrations of it as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your not running a slave ship- Try appreciating your employees and having better communication at the top! so that things flow a lot better and work is more efficient.
