Pros

Job are easily attainable with the company. You can move up quickly if you have a willigness to work and have good credientials.

Send out more surveys to middle management on how to better improvise operations and efficiancy. Give support to the office staff. Remember bottom line is important but achieved thru the susess of the offices structure.

    Pros

    Easy place to work if you have homework. Clients have no idea that services are just for show and most guards get to watch Hulu during shifts. Supervisor at my location loves to bring in some home brew which really makes working for this company a blast!

    Cons

    You have to wear a uniform. Must be willing to put up with other peoples mistakes i.e. "I forgot my office key and ID, can you open it for me?"

    Advice to Management

    You really shouldn't cut peoples wages in this field of work. Use those community college skills and just lay one guy off! Why have the entire entire crew bent when one guy could have paid the price for all.

    Pros

    Better pay than other similiar type local companies. The uniforms allowance is decent also.

    Cons

    Management treates entry-level individuals like they dont matter. They need to have better health insurance. Training is terrible. There is little chance of advancement within the company at the local level. No encouragement by supervisors to contact anyone about other positions within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the entry level employees are what help you keep the contracts. If you would treat the employees with the same respect that you expect from them, adequetly train them for their particular positions, and allow them to do their job without micro-management, you would be surprised at the skilled and dedicated individuals you have working for you.
