    Pros

    If you enjoy a position where you work independently, Securitas is a place for you. The work environment is quiet and easy going.
    Good company to start your career, and good company to retire from.
    Many employees have been there for years.

    Cons

    Much of workload and goal setting is on you. If you are not a jump out of parachute and self starter and willing to take accountability for the work you do, you need to re-evaluate yourself before applying here.

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You should only work here if you are studying for school and still need to work with out any
    distractions.

    Cons

    Anything you do on this job can not help you get another job anywhere. Your Manager will move you from site to site for no reason and always favors "specific" workers. If you are not
    part of the "inner-circle" you will just be push out of a $10 Hr job eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to get real training and with out it they will just destroy this company because of constant turn-over due to nepotism .
