    Pros

    Great Pay and I like the post that i am currently at. If you get hired you get free training instead of paying a lot of money to get certified.

    Cons

    I don't like how you don't earn PTO. You have to hit over 4000 hours of work to get 40 hours of vacation. I recommend changing that, because I been working for the company for almost 2 years and haven't been able to take a vacation day.

    Pros

    People are great to work with. I really enjoy working with the legal group, but the other departments are hard to deal with. No synergy.

    Cons

    Need new systems and processes. The company has doubled in size very quickly and the systems never caught up.

    Pros

    Decent pay great Co worker's

    Cons

    Unorganized and uneducated site supervisors that don't have any part time people except for in armed gates and don't know one day to the next how shifts are going to get covered if an employee goes on vacation or gets sick and works all the full time people til they get burned out, very high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized people running your sites and make sure there is part time people because people have lives outside of U.S. Security.

    Pros

    They offer the best pay for security officers and EMT'S in Pittsburgh area. They have a cheap online training for new officers but most security companies that I have worked for don't offer any form of training. My coworkers we awesome and helped each other out. They are safety oriented and treat employees who work hard like gold.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for pay increases and the laughable heath plans area a big downside.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better heath care options and give incentives to the hardworking employees.
