Approves of CEO

I worked at Guardian Protection Services as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

Nice friendly people, enjoyable atmosphere and working conditions, not micro managed and ability to work with a style that suits you.

Cons

Does not seem to have the desire, management, and drive to become big in this industry. Raises not meeting cost of living and not based on performance. Check the wind gauge for direction of managerial decisions

Advice to Management

Act upon the common folks advice/suggestions because sometimes it's better than your direction.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Guardian Protection Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone there is very nice and very helpful.

    Cons

    Everything contradicts itself. As a customer service agent, they have so many procedures for things it is ridiculous. Also when you need help someone will provide you wrong information and then later you get "pinged" for it.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better management of the company. I recommend dividing CSR work in to different groups, for example having a group do the cancellations, another group the troubleshooting, another group the service calls and another group doing the billing. It is too overwhelming the information for only one person.

    Pros

    Compared to other companies, good starting salary
    immediate use of paid sick and vacation days
    cheap medical and dental coverage

    Cons

    raises are even for everyone, better works earn the same raise as the worse worker
    alot of miscommunication between management and employees
    some policies and procedures make no sense and only frustrate customers and employees
    not all departments are treated the same

    Advice to Management

    Hold all departments accountable and reward those who earn it instead of everyone.
