    I worked at AlliedBarton part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at AlliedBarton because I needed an urgent job. But I got to love it in the long run because my manager was lovely and helpful. And the pay was good for a security officer.

    Cons

    If you've worked security before, you'd know that its not always a fun job especially when you have to be outside during winter.

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time

    Pros

    I met 1 manager with a great heart and attitude. He encouraged my efforts and did what he could to help me whenever and wherever possible.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected, extremely dishonest and often place employees without basic computer skills in positions where they become a major drain on the account and the supervisor's time Poor salary (no raises in more than 8 years), and no room for advancement. It takes a full year to earn a few minutes toward a vacation day. No personal days, no sick time and extremely poor benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The poor culture starts at the top and gets worse each time Allied Barton merges with a new company. Management is satisfied with warm bodies and bonus money for keeping overtime down. The culture has consistently gotten worse and as long as management receives decent pay, there is no incentive to change and improve.

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    With the amount of turnover, there is almost always opportunities for overtime. They have 4 options for health insurance which is actually pretty good.

    Cons

    The company literally does not care about individual employees. Best pray you get assigned to a site where either the client wants as little turnover as possible so keeping officer's happy is a priority or an operations manager who views officers as something more than just a required number to fill needed posts. The only chance to increase your salary is to get to a more prestigious site or become a site supervisor. If your operations manager is unprepared for his/her job or worse doesn't care then your paychecks can easily become random and your vacation time will just disappear.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to decrease turnover and the overtime that comes with it, compensate the more experienced officers accordingly.
