    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great management staff and employees. There were some challenges in my schedule that came up and they were able to work with me without discipline.

    Cons

    After Merger, things "changed." The atmosphere was different and employees seemed to be more worried about what was going to happen to them. Turnover began to happen in management staff that had me worried.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. Retain those that have worked for the company for a long period of time, those are the ones who are loyal.

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time

    Pros

    If you work at a dedicated site you will have a fairly dependable schedule. It can give you inside into a specific site/company you work with if you are ever interested in applying there. There is some opportunity to move upward within AB

    Cons

    Turnover was always an issue for sites, which contributed to extra hours for those staying. The compensation is on par with other subcontracted security officer services.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a fine job, negotiate higher contracts with the benefit of keeping site dedicated team members. The advantages are definitely worth it. Develop software "guru's" for the common access control platforms and offer training to both officers and customer sites.
