    Pros

    Not hard to get on.

    Pay fluctuates with post. No matter seniority next job may go down, in pay. Training needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Train your supervisors and hold them accountable so your officers have a professional to train them to the best of their ability to do their job professionally. Love this company 5 years ago when I left..it has changed alot.

    Pros

    Learn a great deal about security and customer service. Work is not physically demanding. Constant change. Highest rated security company and one of the largest in the country.

    Cons

    As title said too much turnover. No incentives, no clear career path. Cannot sustain living expenses. Below market average pay. Benefits package too expensive. Uniforms are poor quality and make people look terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the almighty dollar and invest in your people. Negotiate better contracts.

    Pros

    Good Pay for Un-armed Security. Set schedules with little change or disruption. Allows you to get a good foot in the door if you like the security field.

    Cons

    Advancement is shaky. You need to really show you know what your doing and keep in contact with account managers.

    Benefits package is decent but most folks working in cleared sites are military and just use their health insurance.

    Pros

    super easy job, ok pay

    Cons

    whatever they pay you will FOREVER be your pay - you will never get a raise because whatever they pay you is all they're contracted to pay. They don't appreciate employees, if you have any types of issues don't expect them to get resolved. Upper management does not communicate at all. My paycheck was messed up - numerous times which took months to fix. You have to work literally every holiday - the only perk to that is the time in a half pay but they don't care if you have a family to spend those days with. You don't get a 15 or a 30 minute break. I'm currently a breastfeeding mother and they won't allow me to take one 15 minute break a day to pump, as I've said previously... upper management doesn't care about your concerns or needs

    Pros

    Pay better than most companies

    Cons

    High turnover rate in the management office. Account managers don't show much concern for their officers, they only focus on the client
