    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

    Quick hiring process and mostly relax .

    Cons

    Pay and management isn't the best. In the office professionalism isn't first priority.

    Advice to Management

    Stop leaving people with bachelor degrees out in the field while promising them a office position. honestly the heads of the company need to clean house at the 249 branch.
