    I have been working at Stanley Security Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and company discounts on tools. The pay is good. Our local ops manager is great.

    Cons

    Horrible micro management by people who dont know what they are doing. They also hire field supervisors who have ZERO field experience. There is no track for advancement. Lots of promises for training that never happens

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing your money makers and the employees that have daily customer interaction. Promote people that know what they are doing and stop sticking people in random positions.

    Big company management brings too many people not directly involved with customers. Some are just working for a paycheck.

    Take better care of the customer and those that work directly with the customer.

    Pros

    Brand reputation, solid benefits and pay, relatively stable and largely a good set of middle management and front line employees.

    Cons

    Their security business is run by a revolving group of tools people who have no idea what they're doing. Also, finance literally runs this business and has little to no grasp on the current events of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Hire/promote people who understand the business they are supposed to operate. Stop cycling through tools people to lead the business and then wonder why they can't grow it.

    Pros

    Very good colleagues to work with across the company. Good salary/benefits.

    Cons

    Ever-changing upper management. They keep bringing in management from other divisions that have no idea how to operate this business. Very confusing promotion/advancement that doesn't seem to be based on merit or productivity. HR group is very ineffective with the exception of one person.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the current very good performers and put them in position of running the company and don't keep promoting/advancing people who dont' deserve it.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. very supportive of the employees. Good benefits and perks. Provides the right equipment to get the job done right. Listens to the serious inputs of regular employees to help drive change for the better.

    Cons

    A little overly micro managed. To much drive for the sales department to make money without emphasis on knowing the products. Pushes to many new ideas down the line which can be very overwhelming. Needs work providing a better customer experience.

    Advice to Management

    Better local level job training program for technicians and sales.
