    Work with good people, opportunity for growth. Always busy, no downtime or staring at the clock. Managers interested in their employees growth.

    I worked at Vector Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest thing I can come up with is the insurance benefits decent. I honestly can't really think of anything else.

    Cons

    Corrupt management. Not all...but most.

    I was basically taught how NOT to treat people in this office. Almost everyone seems miserable and fake.

    Advice to Management

    There's no point.

    Pros

    When I started at Vector the company was ran much smoother than when I left. Overall I enjoyed working there and the coworkers are excellent.

    Cons

    Too many changes that happened to quickly. Also I was very disappointed in the lack of loyalty that was shown to the top sales reps of 25+ years

    Advice to Management

    If it's not broke don't fix it. And also the thoroughbreds that helped build your company up should be compensated as such not as a rookie who is out door knocking for a living.
