    I have been working at Gavin de Becker & Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Pay. Great stepping stone for law enforcement. Top quality training and experience in the Executive Protection field. A lot room for advancement. Lots of promotions within first 2 years.

    Cons

    Long hours. Tough work-life balance (but manageable) Work is primarily in Los Angeles and the Bay Area so if you do not live around the area then you will do some commuting. Traffic is also rough.

    Advice to Management

    Over staff the details to prevent Protectors from working too much overtime and balance out their work-life balance.
