    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Consistent work, opportunity to learn for people new to the field. Work includes a variety of systems: Fire alarms, Intrusion alarms, CCTV, access control.

    Cons

    Family run and dominated. No significant room for growth due to this fact. Father, son, and son-in-law micro manage and are solely concerned with their interests .Employees are underpaid and easily replaced. No incentive to over achieve. Customers consistently feel cheated by the company.

    Advice to Management

    Provide completion bonuses, buy tools for employees as rewards, incorporate new blood into the triad of Steve, Brian, and Billy. Try caring about your employees and see how much harder they work for you.

    I worked at Sentry Communications & Security full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are bright and motivated, you can earn money. There is a lot of commercial work and a little residential. The company is growing with addition of new trucks and installers. Upper management is accessible and the office staff is very friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is not compensatory to the labor, Technicians are not paid for time driving back home in traffic depending upon the distance of the job. The are no great benefits such as 401k or bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Place more emphasis on workers compensation, unhappy workers are not good for a company. You can't lose paying guys wages that they ask, if possible, if not they find ways that are not to the companies advantage to make things suitable for them.
