Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at US Investigations Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Car and gas card, working from home

Cons

Deadlines for cases are unreal and not realistic. Its like a made up date to complete so it can get turned in quick so USIS can make a quick profit without doing a thorough investigation. The metrics system is so stupid and realize that I would need to work over the paid 40 hours a week to get a raise. They demand a lot for not very good pay, especially for Northern CA area. If you put integrity before their unrealistic deadlines, you will never get a raise. Its been 2 years with no raise and I refuse to be rushed and not complete an investigation
properly for that raise. The government should cancel contracts with all contractors and conduct their investigations internally. This would insure more thorough investigations. The goal should be National Security.

Advice to Management

Stop pulling us along acting that everything is fine. Be more respectful and fair to your employees when it comes to raises and benefits. Stopping the 401K contribution for 7 to 8 months was very unfair. Start concentrating on quality instead of quantity and less on the profit margin.

    I worked at US Investigations Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to meet interesting people, go to interesting places. Company supplied training, company car, GPS, laptop with report software

    Cons

    There was a lot of pressure to streamline the interviewing process to under one hour when it could easily take up to 2 hrs to interview subjects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut corners on reinvestigations!

    Pros

    They offer flexible hours and the work is easy as long as you don't mind being on your feet for eight hours a day

    Cons

    There is very poor communication throughout the entire organization. To get an answer to any thing you always have to go over your direct supervisors head.
