I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

    it was fairly easy to get a job at this company and they have well laid out internal rules and procedures. It is difficult to have a hard time at this company. they hire very often

    Cons

    they hire very often and they'll basically hire anyone who can pass a urinalysis. The quality of their candidates is low and their workers are poorly paid.

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They sincerely try to provide good value to their clients and they take client concerns seriously. They don't play games with their Security Officers. They are strict but fair. With the high turnover typical of the industry, there are lots of opportunities for advancement through the supervisory ranks.

    Cons

    Security Officers have pitiful benefits and mostly low wages. Typical of the industry. They don't have any kind of Leadership program to find executive capable people within the ranks. Once you've reached salaried status you're a "made man/woman". Like every big company, they are top heavy so the line employees take it in the neck. Bottom line is all.

    Advice to Management

    Since sites and Officer performance is only as good as the leadership, you need to do a much better job of hiring/promoting Account Managers and Operations Managers. Higher than that its mostly corporate flacks, so no hope there.
