    Cons

    I am racking my brain. At this point I believe that the below with negative remarks are from the people who did not fit in with the culture at CPI. They have a great culture of what I would call people like me. If you do not want to work your butt off, help grow an organization, work with a team, then I think this would not be the place for you. Every company is going to have their challenges, you just need to keep...

    I worked at CPI Security Systems

    Pros

    Great product, competitive monthly pricing, very modern equipment, growing company, great income potential, monthly inventives

    Cons

    Regardless of what they title a job they are all door to door sales jobs. You are expected to push the standard 60 month contracts or get hit with a rep discount (deduction from your pay). Learn what rep discounts are become very familiar with them because you will see them often. You will get an email every single time someone another sales person closes a deal. It gets ridiculous them number of worthless emails...

    Advice to Management

    Leave the office on occasion to remember what field work is like. A nominal base salary would probably help reduce the tremendous turnover the company has. There is a reason there is a new employee training session every single week!!! It is always cheaper to pay good people than continue to retrain.
