    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you enjoy a position where you work independently, Securitas is a place for you. The work environment is quiet and easy going. Good company to start your career, and good company to retire from. Many employees have been there for years.

    Cons

    Much of workload and goal setting is on you. If you are not a jump out of parachute and self starter and willing to take accountability for the work you do, you need to re-evaluate yourself before applying here.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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?
