    Pros

    If you are new to the Security Industry and willing to work hard, this company is very flexible and will allow you to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    If you are just starting out with the company, they usually start you out with a low salary and it will take some time to get a good raise (almost 6 months to a year).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs a little bit of work at some sites and scheduling is definitely an issue where I am located, maybe not so bad at other locations.
