    Former Employee - Concierge/Unarmed Security Officer in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at The Budd Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here was the people i worked for , very nice and respectful, considerate, and easy to get along with, and since i am a people person and a problem solver, it was very easy for me.

    Cons

    The challenges were to be attentive, Professional and do the work based on your rules, and regulations, or you could be taken for granted and be unprofessional and get into trouble easily. The people were nice and giving and very conversational.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always care about your people that are working hard, and always let them know they are appreciated. It takes a server to become a leader.

    I was over worked, and did not recieve any of the promises that were made to me. I had to fight for everything I got.

    Former Employee - Landscaping Division in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at The Budd Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only training I received was from one individual, and he was great, but he did not last long at this company. I enjoyed working with my clients.

    Cons

    They did not "do what they said they were going to do" and did not provide ANY support to those who did the right thing and worked hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should listen to the second tier managers that are the front line of your company. They have a lot of knowledge and do not get any recognition or advancement opportunities. Go back to the mission statement and review what Richard built the company on. It is not heading on that track.

    Pros

    NONE It is just a horrible company to work for. I have been with them for years and at my current site I have seen over 60 people come and go. You are mistreated to an extreme. No one is happy that works for them.

    Cons

    They are just giant bullies wanting their employees to fail. They dont allow their site managers any hiring or firing power yet blame them when they hire someone not capable of completing the task. You never receive any advancement or raise when asked they say they dont give raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management for your Greensboro location.

    I have been working at The Budd Group

    Pros

    The Budd Group mainly has very nice posts for their security personnel. Paychecks are right on the money and on time.

    Cons

    There is no system of feedback at The Budd Group. No raises, no reviews, just bad news whenever you see a supervisor...IF you ever see one. They way that you are talked down to is amazing seeing that the job is already low paying and has a low level of satisfaction and a high turnover rate. The communication is probably the worst out of any other company that I have ever seen. They have a good model but are inept at directing it. Stay away if you can help it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication should definitely become a focal point for The Budd Group. Your officers are your assets, not your property. Provide more oversight and team building goals for the management and officers to learn to rely on each other in key situations and treat each other with respect, because there is already 0 respect for the security field in society so why would I want to continue coming to work if I continue to get no respect internally.

    Pros

    They leave you alone and let you work
    Good project managers
    Accurate pay, and on time with checks
    Paid Training

    Cons

    No future. Unless someone is a project manager or works in account management, there is no real opportunity for advancement. This job is just an extra source of income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being honest, and continue to leave the employees alone. This is the main reason I still continue to work there.

    Pros

    How many companies do you know that are honest, ethical, family-friendly, striving for excellence, debt free, and growing at over 10% a year in a down economy?

    Well, thats The Budd Group

    Cons

    We are still working on our processes, but ahead of most of the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work diligently on building a bench and career paths for winners
