    I have been working at Electric Guard Dog full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful training & on boarding program. Beautiful corporate office setting. Warm, friendly & welcoming environment. Strong support from Department Manager - Crystal, as well as the entire team! Crystal is very approachable & highly respected by her team. I truly felt part of the team after only a week.

    Cons

    I wish I found this opportunity sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the environment fast, fun & friendly. Continue to manage poor performers and move them out. This will keep morale positive among top performers. Recognize strong performance & set challenging, yet obtainable developmental goals. Continue to lead by example. Build strong rapport with other departments while working cross functionally. Give real time & constructive feedback.

    I have been working at Electric Guard Dog full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a long road to find a place like EGD. Not only is the service and product we provide something I truly believe in, it's also like working with a big family. The work is challenging, but I never feel taken for granted and I'm grateful to be a part of this growing establishment. Creativity and ideas are welcome. It's a rarity to land a job you look forward to everyday!

    Cons

    Nothing I don't feel comfortable speaking to my manager about.

    Pros

    This will be a living review that I will update during my time at EGD. It's an exciting time to be with this growing company and so far everything has been top notch. From a visionary leader to fantastic management and even a stellar corporate office. I'm blown away and I can't wait to see it evolve further!

    Cons

    Nothing so far and I hope it stays that way!

    I have been working at Electric Guard Dog full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My favorite thing (out of many!) about working at EGD is management's encouragement of using creativity in problem-solving and solution development. Innovative concepts are not only encouraged, but cultivated and implemented! I have not been part of such a forward-thinking company before, and it is so refreshing! Absent is the old-fashioned mentality of "do it this way because that's how it's always been done." Quite the opposite. Team members are challenged to share their ideas on how we can continue to improve our methods. It is inspiring to be a part of a team who is not only "Relentlessly Protecting," but also "Relentlessly Improving!" No matter how great things are, there are always ways to improve.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any!

    Pros

    This is the first company that I have worked for that I can honestly say I LOVE MY JOB (CAREER)! The company cares for you as an employee and it shows through a competitive compensation, managers that encourage creative thinking and input, a team effort and many other small ways that add up. It's a challenging position that keeps me on my toes, but that's one of the many reasons why I love it. I also love that there are many opportunities to grow with the company.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons.
