    Pros

    you have an opportunity to pick up a lot of risk and exposure that do not belong to you

    Cons

    they create the rules plain and simple. good luck fighting a jewish business embedded with the banks and government. They will force blame on you, illegally chargeback you back, adjust invoices, etc. After being a prized vendor of theirs for over a decade, I had to leave after being crippled by their illegal practices.

    Move on.

    Jan 14, 2019 - Vendor Management in Cleveland, OH

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible PTO policy (even though you were encouraged to not use it because nobody would be covering for you). Pay was competitive, if you work 40 hours a week. The average work week for an exempt employee at Safeguard is 50-70.

    Cons

    Completely unrealistic goals, promotion from within based on friendships, not experience and know-how of the job. Management gives the contractors in the field awful technology to work with and expects them and their staff to troubleshoot all that is wrong and wonders why work is late and not getting done. Everyone is constantly on alert that they are going to lose their job at any time. Mountains of expectation for some, others are freely allowed to leave early and shop on Amazon and Target online.

    Pros

    The pay was great but you honestly never stop working. If you want to be successful you have to work 7 days a week. They had bonus incentives that were very nice when you able to obtain them.

    Cons

    Company culture is complete garbage.

    Run

    Dec 23, 2018 - Vendor Account Manager in Valley View, OH
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Generous PTO - a necessity to trap as many employees as possible. Flex-time - see above. Work from home possibilities if you beg enough, make up a believable lie requiring it, or are a favorite of your direct leadership team.

    Cons

    Incompetent, backwards management. Unrealistic goals - not just bonus goals (if eligible), but everyday goals are unreachable. Management hands you a pencil and expects you to sculpt a skyscraper. Related to the above - zero work/life balance if you even attempt at sniffing the very bottom of your goals. Changes occur in direction too often to provide any sense of stability. This place will drain your soul. With every promotion you are offered, your dreams, ideas, and mental health will die just a bit more. If you are looking for an excuse to be unhappy at home and create distance in all of your personal relationships then this may not be a con for you. If you enjoy having a job that encompasses your entire life and all conversations during, before, and after work involve said job, then this may not be a con for you. If you enjoy your mental health degrading to the point where you are consistently having nightly dreams and waking up in a sweaty puddle of guilt because of all of the terrible things you had to do the day prior, then this may not be a con for you. If you take this position you will go home every single day feeling like an accomplice to a crime. If you enjoy finding and supporting loopholes in poorly written contracts (by employees who were lucky to pass high school English) to avoid paying the subcontractors you are directly responsible for then this might not actually be a con for you. If you enjoy the idea of being responsible for locking subcontractors into agreements that are almost impossible to dissolve (i.e. via scrutinizing the above loopholes once it is known that said contractor would like to end the relationship, via Safeguard entering into backdoor agreements with different background check, insurance, or other related and "required" [that's a no-no word at Safeguard or else they'd have to pay the contractors like employees] processes), then this may also not be a con for you.
