    I have been working at American Defense Systems as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I chose to come over to American Defense Systems because of their reputable leadership of Army Ranger Veterans. I have worked with different companies in the past and it always ended very badly. I can confidently say that I work with the best home security in the industry! They have given me 100% support to build nationally and never missed a single penny on my pay. If I ever have a homeowner that is slightly dissatisfied the ownership handles it quickly and efficiently so that I can receive referrals in the future with my very satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Absolutely no cons working for this company. Simply the best! Shouldn't even be an option to list cons for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and giving the full support that I have always been given. I really appreciate you guys!

    I worked at American Defense Systems (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the most interesting and rewarding work I've done in my career. Many talented and dedicated employees at the lower levels. Ample opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    Upper management was absolutely useless at finding and bidding on new business. Couldn't make a profit because they had absolutely no idea what their operating expenses were. Company was extremely management top heavy. Numerous dead weight employees getting paid to do nothing. Employees who worked the hardest were rewarded the least. Upper management constantly lied to vendors, customers, and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Should have learned to listen to the employees who were around the longest. Should have hired a Chief Operating Officer who knew what she/he was doing.

    Pros

    Mission was important. Company was successful in the early years when there was no competition. Accounting team was amazing on what they had to do.

    Cons

    Too many personnel changes at critical times. Company wouldn't advertise, hoping its past performance would carry them. Engineering had no original thoughts or ability to create new concepts which was suppose to be a strength. Company has done disappearing act in last couple of years ignoring shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck finding someone to take over company.
