I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Consistent amount of full time hours. Most of the people are good to work with. Uniforms are provided and are of good quality.

Cons

Very inconsistent hours/days. Some weeks I would not know when I would be working almost until the day of. You absolutely cannot call in sick or have an emergency, because getting someone to cover your post can be next to impossible. And if you are unlucky enough to be a rover, dont plan on having a life outside of work because the minute someone calls in sick, has an emergency, or resigns on the spot (which happens frequently), then you have to fill that post- no matter how short notice or if it is day or night. No vacation time until after an employee has worked at least a year. Health benefits are not very good. Overall, I would not recommendd working here unless you are sure you are going to move up the ladder quickly.

Advice to Management

There is really nothing they can do, as they are bound by what the clients pay for the services. And many clients have a habit of frequently asking Allied to lower the price of the service.

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

    Pros

    Supervisory skills are vastly improved, Leadership and training are strongly emphasized. American owned. Nationwide and can promote within

    Cons

    Field pays poorly, promotion is slow, people are looked at at resources not human beings that need a break

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you look at employees as people not just as resources. Practice the "internal customer" philosophy that is in so much of the EDGE training

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    An energetic staff and collboration contribute to a great team atmosphere. The benefits are decent if a bit pricey but the work-life balance of most groups is great.

    Cons

    Management is reluctant to address problem staff and weak players. High turnover may be expected amongst the officers but 50-60% turnover within IT in 2 years points to a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Shuffle the deck and bring in fresh management.
