    I worked at GardaWorld part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get company and people to work with. Fantastic salary; flexible hours. Since I was an hourly employee I did not request benefits but I know the full timers were happy.

    Cons

    GardaWorld purchased Aegis and the contract I worked was awarded to Aegis and I know the deployed individuals were not happy with that because Garda treated the employee very well and I've heard and personally experienced unpleasant incounters with Aegis upper management with deployed employees. Example being one upper management would try to blackball employee clearance so they had a hard time getting another contract job.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you would want to be treated!
