    Pros

    Pay is pretty good compared to other security companies. At the time I was hired the manager was worth speaking to.

    Cons

    Management fails to listen to employees about "supervisors" stealing time and failure to properly train officers.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee tells you a laundry list of things, it might be a good idea to listen and change things.

    Great Corporate Management Team who cares for their employees and listens to their ideas. It's a very"Teamwork" oriented atmosphere and this inspires and motivates us even more!. Feels wonderful to be a part of a company that is strong, solid and growing like crazy, To sum it up, I'm so excited to be a part of the Cypress Team!

    Cons

    We need more room, bigger offices- growing by leaps and bounds, :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing :) You make Mondays fun for everyone.

    Pros

    Pay on time, awful locations, low pay, worse training, a place to truly develop bad habits, hand written format where nobody checks, to learn how to lower the bar fast

    Cons

    Worst leadership, low pay, poor conditions, lack of stable equipment, lack of quality employees, overall poor

    Advice to Management

    Worst leadership in a security company I have ever seen. Incompetent Manager and what's worst, everybody knows it. You have a patrol driver doing questionable activities in the patrol car, fix it. You allow a rumor mill to undermined your ability to lead. Maybe this isn't the job for you. With growth in mind with employees, not with you. Given information on possible contracts, you ignore them or not even contact. Embarrassing lack of actual work. When in vegas people hear cypress, they never heard of you. Get off your bottom and actually do the job or let someone else who can.

    I have been working at Cypress Security full-time

    Pros

    In my experience Cypress Security has a great employee centric culture and offers opportunities for advancement for anyone who is interested in a career in the security industry. I have been an employee at Cypress for several years and have taken full advantage of the training program and employee benefits offered to me.

    Cons

    I would like to see more of “upper management” visiting the various sites where our employees work.

    I have been working at Cypress Security full-time

    Pros

    The Business Clients are great to work with.

    Cons

    The Cypress Security staff gets very little training for job requirements. I have witnessed Policy violations from local Managers, Post Order violations from Site Supervisors and possible HIPPA violations.

    Advice to Management

    SF Management should call your Business Clients on a regular basis and ask about the professionalism or lack of such while on site. The local QCM swears F-bombs at you and falsely accussed me of lying. Daily witnessed a Cypress Security Officer playing on her phone with large pink headphones while doodling on paper on a job site. The Site Supervisor is outside smoking most of the shift or playing on her laptop. These are complaints from the Business Client. Your business client relationship may be in jeopardy.
