Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at GardaWorld full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The pay is decent when you add up all the premiums, you get to work in different environment very other day, you meet different kind people if you're lucky you might get a good contract with a stable salary.

Cons

They don't care about their employees's we'll being, not a career job and money is more important then the staff. Have been working for almost 8 years, I've been in many life and death situation while on duty and I've never received a letter to acknowledge my action.

Advice to Management

Start caring.

    Disorganized management during continual reshuffling processes and contract negotiations. Improvements were made recently and stability is impoving.

    I worked at GardaWorld as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Garda are a huge international mult facet business. So you know they are not going anywhere like Aeroguard.

    Cons

    They are so big they don't take the time to build solid working relationships with thier staff and treat everyone like a number. Management sit in the back office and work with numbers then complain to the staff if they are not hitting the magical metrics that they need to look good. If you ask those Manager's how to change the numbers they will not be able to give any answers that add value.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff that work on the floor and have been doing the job for years. They are going to be able to tell you the areas of improvement required and where things need to get better. The so called management staff that work in the back offices who think they know the best thing for the business do not work on the floor in the actual work environment and do not know what they are doing. Management preach culture and values but do not uphold it or notify staff about what it is.
