    I worked at Wackenhut Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy the teamwork and the variety in the work day.

    Cons

    This is not a perfect company, but I have no cons presently. I have learned if you don't have nothing good to say, then say nothing at all.

    Advice to Management

    Employees as well as management are two parts to getting the job done. Stay focused on working together for the common goal, not isolating into separate entities.

    Pros

    The company has some of the best assignments in the city. This is a great company to work for if you are ex-military or retired polce.

    Cons

    The company has too many supervisors but not enough workers, so workers are occasionally asked to work extra hours above 8 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please closely monitor the number of hours worked in a two to three day spand. I've known of instances where employees have worked 16 hour days for several days in a row.
