    I have been working at Sentry Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well organized and structured. Department heads are very experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful. Technology and systems used are advanced in the industry, and constantly being improved upon. Generally flexible with regards to scheduling, days off, vacation, etc. Decent benefits package.

    Cons

    No formal training - even for 'green' employees. Little room for advancement, depending on position held. Employee morale can be low at times - though company is visibly working on making morale better.

    Advice to Management

    Invest as much in the overall happiness of your employees, as is invested in happiness of clients. Upper management should make regular visits to division offices and spend time with office staff - the feeling of connection to the corporate office will go very far.

    I have been working at Sentry Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great entry-level positions to gain experience in various fields;
    Mostly friendly environment;
    Growing company;
    Minimal requirements for Accounting positions;
    Technically competent management

    Cons

    Little room for advancement;
    Uncompetitive pay rates compared to other similar employers (probably due to low entry requirements);
    Often uninspired or unmotivated workforce due to uncompetitive rates

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs decide whether the company seeks to be a high-quality firm seeking high-quality clientele and pay the extra money for high-quality employees or whether it seeks to be a moderate-to-low-quality firm that serves that quality of clientele while paying those types of rates to similar employees. Seeking to be a high-quality firm with similar clientele is not sustainable while employing their current employees at their current rates. Pay more to and demand more of your employees or risk your high-end clients receiving disappointing service.

    Pros

    Good support from supervisors and back office. Easy system to learn and use. On-site management, which I did, allows for lots of autonomy and allows you to accomplish tasks on your own.

    Cons

    You are on call 24/7 at most on-site management positions so you will be called at all hours after normal work day hours. At times you will have to report back to the property if fire or police activity is on the property.

    Advice to Management

    Do not dismiss good managers because of age. Be more knowledgeable and make sure all managers are held to the same standard when performing such duties as writing monthly manager reports and setting budgets.
