I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

    Pros

    -Good company to move up in -A lot of hours for OT if you are interested in that -Fairly friendly people to work with -Client was great to work with

    Cons

    -Each of the three shifts were run completely different no sense of control from Account Manager. -There was so much OT that my home life was difficult for a stretch of time -Only way to get a review/ bonus, days off, was to complain -Management showed a lot of favoritism to certain people -Left on post alone for hours at a time because guards wanted to hang out for the entire shift. -Was treated unfairly -No punishments were given to people that did not bother to show up or call off -So much drama in the workplace that it became stressful to show up for work

    Great Place to Work

    Pros

    This is a company that motivates employees simply by expressing genuine care, trust and appreciation for the team at all levels in the company. The turnover is non-existent at the office and management level. This culture has spread throughout the company and earned us the status as a great place to work by the organization that ranks fortune magazines best workplaces.

    Cons

    We are growing so fast that many times we struggle to get all the operational pieces in place in a timely manner - this can create some stress amongst the troops. However, since the whole team is aligned with the mission, people come together to get it done.

    Best Large Security Company I've Worked For

    Sep 9, 2016 - Shift Lead 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Professional, reasonable and responsive upper management. Better than average pay and benefits with opportunities to increase wages through longevity (if Union) and promotions to positions with greater responsibility. However, predominant pros and cons are determined by client/site assignments.

    Cons

    Understaffed, underfunded and undeveloped HR/Recruiting Departments exacerbate turnover issues. Exceptional officers underperform and quit when overworked to meet client demands and make up for unreliable officer's performance. Few to no Mid-West and West clients/sites make staying with the company impossible should you move.
