    Pros

    MONEY MONEY no office politics, work from home, OT all the time rewarding work, carl allowances, gas CC, great office, travel to new places

    Cons

    If you have a family and enjoy holidays and weekends not for you. 2 Weekend off a month and long 14 18 hour days but if managed correctly can be fast 18 hours, staying away from home a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten days, guarantee 40 hour a week, cross train, and increase salary especially when covering multiple states.

    Pros

    Paid Holidays and GTO every other week usually a Sunday/Monday. Meal breaks, a few other perks.

    Cons

    Not a real Investigation Firm. Pays below Industry standards. Not safety conscious regarding field Investigators. IM'S pretty much a Bully. Excessive travel outside of 200 mile radius.

    I worked at G4S Compliance & Investigations full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many pros to this job. Only pro and it can sometimes feel more like a con, but working by yourself can be nice. The benefits are not too bad either.

    Cons

    This company lied to me from the start. Don't listen to the recruiter because he will just tell you what you want to hear to bring you on. The turnover rate is outrageous. You will be traveling approximately 1000 miles a week and those miles are on your vehicle. The vehicle allowance does seem appealing at first but after one major repair you quickly realize it's nowhere near enough. You will be staying away from home more than what they tell you as well. Out of the last 3 weeks I've spent more time in a hotel room than I care to think about. The pay is not great. Most days if you haven't seen your claimant by the 4 hour mark they break you off of the case. So you may go a week and only get 20 hours or so of case time. I wish I would have listened to other reviews on here before taking the position. Please don't make the same mistake I did.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people instead of "numbers"

    Pros

    Plenty of work to be done

    Cons

    Calibre of new hires seems to be low. They definitely are EEO, but not all employees are equal

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and discretion in personnel and the turn over rate, level of professionalism, and work ethic will be much better than what we have now
