Positive Outlook

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

Pros

The atmosphere is very family oriented. You will see the owners walking around every day, and they will talk to you like you are one of the family. Benefits are not too bad either.

Cons

When working in customer service, everything is scrutinized. When you are finally supposed to make sales, it gets even worse. You are constantly supposed to be trained in different areas, and if you do not get it , you're in for an earful. Slight revolving door when it comes to employees.

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

    Pros

    3 divisions in one company. Company catered lunch and breakfast once per month at MI HQ. Several long term employees who have 20+ years with the company. Strong leadership and new technology. HR is very responsive to employee needs/concerns. Vacation, medical benefits and company size is just right (you're not a number but treated like a person).

    Cons

    Uniforms are required for some positions. Company is modernizing but the pace could be faster.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees informed of all changes in advance.
