    Pros

    Lots of overtime, the coworkers are great, flexible with time you start working, and work from opportunities available. If you have a dr appt you can leave and come back to finish shift

    Cons

    Lots of mandatory overtime, training needs to improve as they do not give you tools needed to succeed. The manager will tell you it’s ok and they will work with you but then just fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Need leadership class

    Pros

    PTO and dress down everyday.

    Cons

    Terrible place to work, poor management, lot's of people have been let go or left due to poor management. Does not appreciate there employees at all, work ethic is shady. I worked there approx. 8 years and the place fell apart. Started of being a very good workplace for the first couple of years, but then quickly went downhill. No one knows what they are doing and the ones that do are not appreciated. They promote quantity instead of quality of work, which is why this place is falling apart FAST! Found a job in the same field w/ one of their competitors and I LOVE IT!!!!

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

    Pros

    Pay was decent, plenty of hours available.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? They use dos operating systems, I received ZERO training pertaining to my position, was thrown under the bus by other employees to vendors for being new, co-workers are more worried about your clothes and gossip than they are their own jobs, insanely unrealistic expectations from management, no office supplies provided (bring your own push pins and pens!) strict atmosphere, turnover rate is through the roof (I wonder why), dismissed after being hospitalized with pneumonia with no regard.

    Advice to Management

    Most companies have adopted an "open door policy" Safeguard should consider this. Team leads are great however, upper management acts as if any communication is bothersome. When approval is needed it is only granted along side of unrealistic expectations that result in essentially asking contractors to work for free.

    Pros

    There is a cafeteria at the main building.

    Cons

    With it's blatant favoritism and overall unprofessional actions, this place is a morale killer. You can work as hard as you want and be as knowledgeable as you want, but if you are not in the high school clique masquerading as leadership, you will not advance at all despite effort, attitude, expertise level, or what you are told. If you are skilled and looking for career enrichment and advancement, work somewhere else. You can do better.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is top down. Incompetence breeds incompetence, and new, qualified employees won't put up with your antics for long. The only ones that will put up with it long term are the dregs. Consider interviewing team members for positions that have earned them and are qualified for them, rather than secretly appointing overnight your pets and buddies from your previous workplaces , (most of which appear to have gone under during your leadership).

    Pros

    Working from home is awesome

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations. Change of management. Don't fix what's not ever broken. Stressed out everyday. Then went from processing 28 registrations to 49 per day that is double the work. So I always feel good at the end of the day that I did a good job but I don't know they can fire you in an instant. So beware because all your hard work and efforts are just going to be flushed down the toilet and then you will be left with nothing

    Advice to Management

    Don't make people feel like they are going to lose their job every day of their life people like us we process things and do our job accordingly but you put me in a category that is
