    I worked at OpSec Security Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I took the Job at OpSec because it was a cool product in an interesting field. OBP is constantly changing personnel, but it's been a rotating team full of genuinely good people.

    Cons

    No benefits to working hard, and no consequences for not.

    At first I loved the job and hoped to work at OpSec for 20 years. I soon realized why the members of OBP become so pessimistic.

    There is no criteria for career growth at all. I went above and beyond for years and when it was my turn to get promoted, the promotion criteria changed to avoid me. People with less experience and less education were promoted and hired over me. 3 hires and 3 promotions were chosen instead of rewarding the fact that I had the largest workload of any analyst, the longest tenure, and I was even performing the responsibilities of a former employee that was fired. I absorbed all of his responsibilities without management even acknowledging me.

    The final straw for me was spending weeks making a resource for new hires on top of my workload (which was significantly larger than other analysts), and management credited my hard work to someone else. Less than a month before this happened to me, I interviewed for a promotion, and a decision wasn't made for nearly a year. I turned down a job offer from another company because of the opportunity to promote at OpSec, and management kept me on the line for nearly a year...... Pretty discouraging stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Communication: Vocalizing program goals will reduce the monotonous work.

    Career Arch: Vocalizing goals, performance, and feedback will incentive OBP. Promoting people inconsistently, and illogically will discourage people.

    Ill always be appreciative of OpSec giving me a job and a handful of good friends, but overall it was a disheartening experience.

    I worked at OpSec Security Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You learn to use Excel fairly well. Standard 9-5, pretty much.

    Cons

    I hadn't planned on writing anything but recently heard that another negative review on this site prompted the CEO to email the Boston office that the review was from a single disgruntled former employee and to disregard it. I understand that is hearsay and potentially unfair, but based on my experience at OpSec, I believe it to be true. That belief and my feelings toward company management (disregard for employee welfare, dismissal of criticism, etc), in making such a statement have led me to this review.

    So that gives you an idea of what the company is like. In actuality, my experience was one where I used my lunch breaks to send out resumes (I worked there approximately 1 year). My total workload was full of routine, busy work that we could (and often did) outsource to other countries. It involves manually reviewing hundreds of links a day, paying a $40K/year salary, and offering very limited opportunities for advancement or pay raises. Although I had a business graduate degree, no one ever asked my advice or offered me a chance to grow beyond the busy work. Middle management is dismissive of low level employees and extremely demanding of deliverables.

    Advice to Management

    Either outsource the work, write better software to do the "analyst" work, or take care of your employees so they can develop and create a decent product.

    Boston location in the city

    Cons

    I worked at OpSec in Boston. Nothing special here with this company. Management isn't transparent with their employees. Company hides information. Leadership team, managers, and HR aren't too helpful. You're stuck with figuring stuff out on your own. Communication and expectations are poor.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management

    Utilized my various skill sets until the operations transfer was complete

    When Opsec purchased my job site in 2012, my responsibilities did not change but it was known that ultimately they would be transferring operations to their pre-existing location

    Pros

    The company is full of some really smart and talented people, specifically in the brand protection division. The leadership is very committed to the employees success and works hard to achieve both unit and individual success. A pleasure to work with and learn from the members of the brand protection team.

    Cons

    The direction of the company as a whole seems to shift with the wind. Divisions within the company can be very focused but the overall vision of the company lacks clear direction from an everyday employees point of view.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden the understanding of company plans and vision for product development, placement and future. The divisons within the company often times seem segregated.
