    "Worst company I ever worked for."

    1.0
    Former Employee - Associate Investigator in Tampa, FL
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at US Investigations Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked for this company for more than six years. There were no Pros to this company. Working from home was not a plus. I could never get the assigned work completed before another pile was transmitted to me. The company car was a joke. Just give me mileage or a gas card and partial mileage and I will put the money toward a new car. I couldn't force myself to give the company even a one star, but can't submit without one.

    Cons

    If you had vacation time good luck taking it. Had Christmas off one time. Couldn't have more that two investigators away at the same time, they said. Didn't stop my Team Leader from taking seven 5 day vacations between January and July one year (I stopped counting at seven). I did a good job but it was not appreciated.

    Pros

    The people are nice and allow a lot of latitude.

    The company was purchased by an investment firm which seems only to care about making money. Jobs where sent off shore and many people lost their job.

    "Record Searcher"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at US Investigations Services full-time

    Pros

    Work from home on company laptop and local travel to interesting companies.

    Cons

    I was there 05-07 but that wasn't a choice for this review. Although there was a central office, record searchers didn't need to go there often so there was no getting to know your co-workers or office culture, which is isolating.
