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

    Pros

    Jobs were mostly not very difficult. The jobs that were difficult we're at least interesting. The work was the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Moved from a site due to a lapse in my security clearance. No effort was made to place me at a site that payed as well as my previous long term assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Offer promotions within the company before going outside the company. Nepotism does you no favors in the long run.

    Pros

    Jobs are quite easy. This is a good job if you go to school, you can use your free time to study.

    Cons

    There is not much chance advancement from this company. The pay grade depend on which site you work at, which probably depend on how much the customers are willing to pay. As a security guard, don't expect much pay grade increase or any if at all. This company has gone through a couple of owners already. This company is older than me. Sometimes Allied Barton lose contract with other companies and you might move to different site.
