I worked at G4S full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

G4S is a career oriented world wide company. Many of the comments here come as a result of misundersanding the security officer business as a whole. What the customer is willing to pay has to be worked back into wages, administrative fees, insurances, medical benefits, vacations and a plethora of other costs. The majority of that billing rate comes back to the hourly security officer leaving managers (former) like me to deal with the overhead expenses and overtime costs. There were officers who made more than me as a manager and that is because the customer was willing to pay for them. G4S is absolutely the best company in the world and I don't work there anymore.

Cons

Too much daily crisis management brought on by Regional actors.

Advice to Management

Visit the Regions on a more frequent basis and get into the 'trenches' where the work is performed. Take what you hear or see on paper from GM's and RVP's with a grain of salt. Ask questions. Get answers
