    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    lots of 'free time'.
    Generally speaking, few duties, patroll, check ID cards, simple stuff.
    flexible hours.

    Cons

    \the company doesn't really give a crap about you as an individual.
    you get paid depending on what site you are contracted at, not what you are 'worth'.
    you are a "body-on-site" so the contract gets filled, they will replace you in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Give long term employees raises, even if it's low, like +$1/hr * for every year worked.
