I worked at Professional Security Consultants full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Its biggest client is Westfield Malls, so it's a great opportunity to work in mall security. Medical and dental benefits available. More secure and stable than most private security firms. Does not require much experience.

Cons

Big disconnect between corporate and operations level. Constant turnover. Low pay.

Advice to Management

Random drug and alcohol testing.

    I have been working at Professional Security Consultants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy Job for regular floor officers

    Cons

    Its all politics
    No raises for some promotions (Don't Understand That!)
    Most employees are not positive
    Supervisors, ASDs and Directors don't get paid enough for the amount of work that has to be done and politics that have to be dealt with on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people you like. Most of them are idiots. See who really is working hard and knows what they are doing. Also, stop trying to get everyone in trouble all the time. Let people know when they do something right. All I hear is complaints about employees. Not very positive atmosphere.

    Pros

    PSC is fast moving company that always is looking to improve and expand. The client is the most important person at PSC and PSC bends over backward to satisfy them. If you have something to contribute, you will asked to help.

    As long as you can understand the big picture of how PSC operates, on a client satisfaction and client restrained budget, it can be a satisfying place to work.

    Cons

    PSC does it's best for its employees in the field, but often is subjected to "cut-throat" bidding by its competitors. This leaves a very narrow profit margin and benefits and incentives for field employees. It seems as if PSC at times is being "not caring" to the field, but they are only managing what the client wants to give. Tough economic times dictates the business.

    PSC is an Israeli owned and managed company. Those that adapt and learn often do well. Those that do not adapt and expect the company to change for them will be unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Always to your best to maintain serious and loyal employees.
