    I have been working at CPI Security Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic company "family" feel Excellent perks ie: Sporting events, concerts, family days... etc Average support from management Earn whet you're worth... Very good comp plans

    Cons

    -Watch your money. I've been employed by CPI for over a year and can say without a doubt, there hasn't been any large check paid to me that I didn't have to argue over incorrect commission paid... All outside sales reps are commission ONLY, every dollar counts... I've been shorted as much as $800 and as little as $25, but it ALL adds up. -Sales reps are ultimately the bottom of the pay chain. Corporate, Managers, Install...

    Advice to Management

    Hire more than one or two people to assess commissions to be paid out. Having to sell the deal, coordinate the install, follow up on the checks, monies and ultimately page 3 is ENOUGH, we shouldn't have to also constantly check on our commissions also... Managers need to be held a bit more accountable to their reps. Asking a rep to go "sell, sell, sell," and then instructing them THEY have to do all follow-up on payroll...

        I have been working at CPI Security Systems full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Great high tech usage and applications for like minded skill sets. Challenges employees to push themselves and up their game to excel. TONS of perks and incentives.

        Cons

        Employee retention needs to be an important goal. The challenge of training new hires is never easy but needs to continue to improve.

        Advice to Management

        Stay grounded. CPI should be around a long time and eventually become a powerhouse. Quick growth can have a double edge.

        I have been working at CPI Security Systems full-time

        Pros

        Great non traditional benefits ie football games (recently changed) would like to see that return next year, big hit with employees. Carowinds is great for families. So many other things like 10 year anniversary gifts. Sales prizes, trips for top performers.

        Cons

        Feels like there is some favoritism showed to top performers in branch offices. There are not enough supervisory roles in branch offices. The quality of work being performed is slipping. I also see a lack of moral in the branch office I currently work in.

        Advice to Management

        Please look into branch office moral issues. Please look into the issues of favoritism. Job assignments should be assigned properly and certain technicans should not have the pick of their jobs.
