    I have been working at Safeguard Business Systems part-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities for motivated people. Great network of professionals to learn from and collaborate with. There are a lot of ways to learn more about the industry and initiative is appreciated.

    Cons

    Not really any downsides that I can think of, although I wish I had the opportunity to be a full time employee (with benefits would be nice) after years of being a part timer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to look 'down the ladder' for innovation and great ways to get the job done.

    I have been working at Safeguard Business Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back, friendly, flexible and overall good benefits.

    Cons

    Management, promotions, raises, and individual performance is not fully attainable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and use their skill set for other areas, rather than doing A-Z on what they normally do daily.

    Pros

    I absolutely have none for this company. It's really sad. I didn't feel as they had anything for me. Worked there for a short time and thankfully it was short.

    Cons

    Too much gossip and talk and too many women in one small office. Advice, hire more men or a balance.

    Advice to Management

    Make new employees and anyone new that walks into your door feel welcome and happy to be there . Too much gossip and personal talk around the office. Not enough or intensive training at all. Hire more men, too many women brings too much drama. Lots of talk there and didn't feel welcome once. Felt more negative energy. While working there the employees were talking about how much turnover they got back to back. Not good

    I worked at Safeguard Business Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation and decent benefits. Flex time and remote work opportunities. Building being remodeled with very nice gym and cafe.

    Cons

    Complete lack of effective management. No progressive thinking and completely behind the times. Easy to become stagnant, and very little room for growth. Poor job training with little to no structure. Hostile work environment in some areas, with highly negative atmosphere. Reported hostile work environment with repetitive racial jokes and slurs, but nothing done to disrespectful employees with tenure. Company performed very poorly (financially) in 2016.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace a progressive way of thinking. Remove negative employees and take employee reporting seriously to avoid position turnover and lawsuits.

    Great benefits, PTO, Earn monthly commission.

    Every person is not a robot and does work with feelings. Take heed to your employees as they are the ones to play a major part within the business to keep a float.

    Pros

    Casual dress code, hours, people. Some of the people are there for 25+ years.

    Cons

    Poor management, way behind from current technology. PTO system is absolutely horrible. Since they have some legacy employees for 25+ years, they get to pick their vaca days & new employees aren't allowed to take those days off.

    Advice to Management

    Change your PTO policy. Get up to date with current technology. Hire managers based on skill.
