    Pros

    I have nothing good to say

    Cons

    Do the right thing and they will punish you. If you are a member of the guard or reserves, don't expect any opportunities and to be constantly mislead by HR.

    I worked at Stanley Security Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Proud parent company, has scale and opportunity

    Cons

    Literally the most dysfunctional management team I’ve ever witnessed. They promote cheerleaders and self promoters who lack real management experience to run the sales team. Strategy changes each day. Business run by consultants.

    I worked at Stanley Security Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The only real pro is the Healthcare Benefits. Definitely one of the Best In the Industry.

    Cons

    No car, salary ok but the ability to actually book a job in the very outdated System takes a week at best after making the sale, Extremely Confusing Pay Schedules so you never know when you actually get paid or if they are even calculating your pay correctly, Business Model Changes by the hour, completely run by inexperienced Install and Operations Mgrs which leaves no motivation for The Sales team, Large company but does t believe in spending money for Reps to have offices or even works spaces. No Leads so you pretty much have to self generate any and all Sales Opportunities, and they are quick to let people go whenever there is any kind of decline in sales or change in job market. Therefore constant turnover. No room for advancement in Sales whatsoever.

    I worked at Stanley Security Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Initially on the surface, a division of a F500 parent company with significant resources. Unfortunately, this pro is also a con, as leadership recently talked about monetizing the security division. Some very dedicated and smart product leaders.

    Cons

    Where to start...zero onboarding, no structured training, no CRM training resources, overly complicated CRM, no clear national account sales plan , reliance on projects from long-time customers, no strategy for attracting new logos, no strategy to build recurring revenue model, no strategy to stem recurring revenue attrition. Broken promises for assigned accounts. No shared vision or direction. High turnover throughout the security division.
