    I worked at Akal Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission is why most people stay-upper management needs to remember why we are there. Safe flights should be what all we are about.

    Cons

    Understaffed-under paid-under appreciated-under trained-under supported-untrustworthy team-most are out to make themselves look good at any expense to others. Remember not all are alike!

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more supportive of your management team

    Pros

    Decent pay for work performed.

    Cons

    Very unresponsive to needs of employees. Never see management to voice concerns and suggestions--does not answer e-mails or phone calls. Hiring process is a ridiculous 6 to 9 months and thus lose qualified people in process--Always short staffed!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat front line CSOs as the professionals you would like to have the public see them. Also nee upgrades in technology.
