    I worked at G4S full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I honestly do not think there is any pro to working here unless you are desperate for work

    Cons

    This is the worst company I have ever worked for. The turnover rate is unbelievable due to horrible management. The internal power struggles and power trips are ridiculous and should be a study in how NOT to run a business. The managers are not there to help you grow, but instead fear and fire anyone who questions or offers ideas. They ask for people to work for pennies and bend over backwards to do the job of several because people either get fed up and quit or speak up and are let go. They are greedy beyond belief and mark up the simplest things so that clients pay more. An all around horrible company with horrible current managers
