    I have been working at Inter-Con Security part-time

    Pros

    Great people and teams. Located in a great spot in the middle of Old Town Pasadena, so great food and places to run quick errands during breaks. Good time to join the company as its updating its approach.

    Cons

    In the middle of a temporary workspace updating (i.e. new systems, new office layout). Seems like it'll be much better/more modern in the long run, but many adjustments being made currently.

      I worked at Inter-Con Security full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      With the new president, seems like there’s a potential that the culture could improve in a positive direction.. there had been larger company events and there’s an anonymous survey on what we wanted to comment/complain. Which was good.

      Cons

      I feel like the employees are not valued enough. The company/management pretty much treat the employees as people who bring more money to the company and that’s all. I saw no room for growth unless someone above us quits, training for new hires were not structured, and there was little chance for professional development. No end of year bonus, bad benefts, company culture should be improved. Pay was also below market...

      I have been working at Inter-Con Security full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Pay, great for someone wanting to get into security/law enforcement or a retirement job

      Cons

      Hours can be a hassle, uniform=mall cop, leadership can be..different. Paperwork is a waste of time

      Advice to Management

      Uniform change, figure out a more modern way for paperwork and clocking hours. So much wasted paper.

      Former Employee - Finance/Accounting in Pasadena, CA
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Inter-Con Security full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Finance/Accounting Department - Coworkers are nice and helpful, creating a positive, collaborative work environment. VP and controller tried to maintain flexibility even though company is not (i.e. work schedules, etc.).

      Cons

      Company did not treat employees as professionals - not flexible with work schedules. Benefits were not good - no matching 401(k), minimal paid holidays and you can't even leave early on the day before a holiday. Dress code - business attire (slacks, ties for men, no sleeveless shirts or capris for women, all even in 100 degree summer weather) Mon-Thurs even though we don't interact with clients, business casual Friday...
