    I have been working at Gavin de Becker & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best leaders I've met thus far. They are honest, fair, and if you work hard it will give you opportunity. Great training by Instructors who have a wealth of experience whether its Military, EMS, or Federal Law Enforcement. EVP at one time headed the Department of Homeland Security.

    Cons

    If you have no prior experience in the field your early stint working in a residential CC or Corporate Security role may bore you a bit. 1st year or so.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the 7 on 7 off schedule here in the US. You need time to live and train your body. 12 hour shifts working at a CC versus say a Global Security Agent role traveling with the Principal is vastly different. I think this would be a game changer and keep more guys around longer.

    I have been working at Gavin de Becker & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Entry level position that introduces you to "executive protection".
    Decent pay if you have military or prior experience.
    Hyped up for job at the beginning.

    Cons

    It's a good ol boys club. If you're not already on the ready team, aka the team they fly out to do all the details, then good luck getting any actual details after even 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    There are plenty of people with significant experience with high profile clients that have been in more dangerous situations than the Grammys. Use them.
