    They don't advertise so company provided leads were rare.

    Pros

    Opportunity to succeed if you fit in the right clique on the Operations side. Service Side of the house seems to have a more fair approach to Management and less politics. Working hours were good & benefits were decent. Coworkers were hard working.

    Cons

    Management isnt trustworthy. Two faced and very self important. Tell you one thing to your face and then do another. Very frustrating to figure out who you can trust and who you cant. Those you can trust seem to get demoted and demoralized while the sneaky ones get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    get over yourself and remember what it was like to be talked down to and lied to early in your career.

    Great work environment with good people to work with. The company offers a wide range of benefits. A matching 401k as well as paid time off, and tuition reimbursement..

    Cons

    Work can get challenging, there is constant changes but in any corporation that thrives where is it not any changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your employees, they work very hard and i think management does a great job with making sure everyone is properly trained.

    I worked at Vector Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are fantastic, with the exception of a few of course. But all in all it was a fun place to work.

    Cons

    They don't like when you move around the company. i.e. apply for positions within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more lenient with your employees that want to experience different positions within the company, especially if they work hard and are never late.

    Pros

    This organization has the strongest sense of pride of any company I know. The commitment to employees and customers carries all the way through the organization, straight to the CEO. I made a conscious choice to join this team; a choice that has proven to be the most valuable career decision of my life.

    Cons

    Vector is built on an amazing history and a wonderful sense of pride. The foundation is very strong. Right now, there is a bit of uneasiness as the organization creates a vision for the future. Change is hard. Some are struggling with the transition from a small, local security provider to a large, industry leading provider of automation, technology and customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Remain committed to your customers and your employees

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    People were nice but somewhat distant. Not surprising given the rapid turnover.

    Cons

    Make calls door to door all day with very miniscule or no interest in speaking with you. You simple cannot make a living there as you start off with a draw for 3 months that goes down each month until it is straight commission.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't the massive turnover clue you in to anything?
