    I worked at Tenable Protective Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Best training than any other security company I've been in the bast 16 years.

    Cons

    They don't have the benefits to pay an officer more than 13 dollars an hour. They refuse my offer to upgrade report forms to more advance technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to take management to the next step. Train those who are with the company for many years. Technology today Tenable will not catch up tomorrow. Technology requires training daily. Upper management can't afford this technology. They could stay old school such as paper.

    Mobile Officer

    I worked at Tenable Protective Services

    Pros

    It's an stable job, set schedule, it's easy, good bunch of employees to work with.

    Cons

    There is no place to advance in this company. They will tell you otherwise. If you start at a school or site it's rare to be moved to mobile. DONT be an OIC, they pay you a quarter more, you have to go to meetings, get phone calls about stuff that you had nothing to do with, extra paperwork, responsible for others screw ups, etc. It's a job nobody wants. This company cut pay before I started,pay cut or loose your job, they took away real Heath insurance and took away vacation time. My job duties increased a lot, all billable yet no raises EVER. When I started they really seemed to care about employees, not so much anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees, they are making you money and we mean nothing to you.

    I worked at Tenable Protective Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to possible law enforcement contacts for those looking for a career in law enforcement, and mostly agreeable coworkers at the peer level. Lots of low level cardio involved with exterior postings for 6-8 hours at a time.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism is a major problem, upper management seems to not under stand the finer points of security nor does it seem there is an understanding of what their impact is on the local area around a contract site. Little to no room for upward mobility despite astonishing turnover rate of employees. Little to no appreciation for past experience. Hostility shown towards individual needs. General lack of enthusiasm to provide the best possible security services or a secure environment. Highly unorganized without dependable scheduling, and will go back on guarantees of 40 hour plus work weeks. Wages are low and with no benefits, even for highly experienced employees. Management has a distinct lack of tact and seems to willfully insult employees, whether about intelligence or personal appearance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a uniform structure and code of conduct for all sites, eliminate office politics, and provide a much better working environment. Realistic expectations of low wage employees would also be helpful as well as discovering the true value in the entry level individuals. Appreciate and utilize individuals with expansive background in the career field. Selective hiring would also cut down on employee turnover rate.

    A good place for a young person starting out in the workforce.

    I worked at Tenable Protective Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job is pretty easy, and there is a lot of good people working there. I enjoyed the customers I worked with, and the associations developed with the local police agencies.

    Cons

    This company needs a proactive form of diversity training. Also this company is one sided where they will listen to one person who has a dislike for another individual in the company and soley take their word without any formal investigation or consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really enjoyed working for this company, but certain rules and regulations when it comes to discipline needs to be addressed. I gave my all and all when I was called for emergency fill-ins. I guess my best wasn't good enough when it deals with racism.

    I worked at Tenable Protective Services

    Pros

    Working events, such as concerts, and events at the IX Center. Also, the majority of the people working the events for Tenable are outstanding people.

    Cons

    Lied to about growth opportunities and was promptly let go without any notice or compensation package. Was told that some before me had the same thing happen, and I am sure it will happen to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front about opportunities to continue with the company, so as to not waste someone's time and efforts, only to let them go when you are done with them.

    I have been working at Tenable Protective Services

    Pros

    A majority of the workers are pleasant to be around. Pay is okay, but not for all the extra work that is asked to be done. Outdoor work can be good, depending on the season.

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea how to run the day-by-day operation. Company does not care about their employees. If you get hurt or sick, you are mad to feel that your at fault. Management can't never give a straight answer. Text messaging is considered solid means on communication, weather you received the message or not. Company vehicles are unsafe to be driven on the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A serious change needs to be made to the management and how it is ran. Corporate should ask the everyday worker what needs to be done and how to satisfy their needs, because without the workers the company will fail.

    I have been working at Tenable Protective Services

    Pros

    Exciting enviroment, my co-workers, meeting people. The way we rely on each other. Mostly outdoors. The game and players along with the fans. Seeing families come together to enjoy a family tradition. Some have been doing this for as long as the "CLEVELAND BROWNS" have been around.

    Cons

    The weather can be a deciding factor in how comfortable you are. The fights. When we need to intervine in a despute that should not being even have started. People getting upset when we ask to see their tickets and then inform them that they need to return to that seat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a GREAT JOB.
