    I worked at Pinkerton Government Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    organization is well operated . Pay was good, employee standards were above other companies I've worked with.

    Cons

    contracts were mostly in Dallas area, I live in Mid Cities area. PPO work opportunities were few and far in between.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain open communication channels with field officers. Be fair and impartial when conducting evaluations of personnel. Expect officers to adhere to company dress code and policy.

    Pros

    Pay is above average than most unarmed place.
    advancement opportunity is there if you are good with management and other officers.

    Cons

    Advancement is not secure.
    You can get cut any time and go back to the bottom
    Better than receiving unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront with your supervisors and instead of cutting them or demoting them maybe offering them other sites and don't embarrass them.
    Other than that the company and business is ok. Just that. It's all business.
