    Pros

    Wayne Alarm Systems truly is more than just a company. If you work here you are part of the family which everyone looks out for one another. Great benefits, full health insurance, management that truly wants everyone to succeed, and a company that heavily invests in training it's employees.

    Cons

    You will be held accountable for your work. If you are not producing or are a detriment to the companies culture you will be gone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I'm excited to see where Wayne Alarm Systems is 50 years from now.

  3. "Marketing Intern"

    I have been working at Wayne Alarm Systems as an intern

    Pros

    Wayne Alarm System's combines the pro's of a small privately owned company, such as having personal relationships with your coworkers and management, with the same driven attitude of a large company. In my opinion Wanye Alarm Systems falls in the best of both.

    Cons

    Can't think of any of the top of my head.

    Pros

    Friendly people, this review had a minimum of 20 words but there are no more pros for this company. This should give you a good starting point.

    Cons

    Horrible management, this companies senior management is only concern is money. The owner is just a figure head and is not concerned with what is going on in the company. New technicians have to go to Nantucket for a week at a time, no insensitive for this and if you ask for something they give you a run a round answer. Company has high mark ups of products and labor. Customers are always complaining, and unhappy with services. I have a feeling of embarrassment, going to work with the way this company conducts it's self.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure upper management!

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Wayne Alarm Systems (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full coverage Health care BCBS

    Cons

    They are CONSTATLY changing your schedule to cover all shifts except for senior operators of 10+years. Constant schedule change is due to central station being a revolving door for operators.

    Advice to Management

    It would be best to stop the seniority favoritism since it isn't conducive to productivity as a team. Also not fair for newer employees to pick up the slack for the older ones getting by on their status and not work ethic or dependability. Also this company starts at only $9.45/hr and they are hesitant to give raises.


  6. "Summer Job"

    Pros

    Great people, good environment, good location. It was a very warm environment to work with and I felt that the people that worked there really loved the company.

    Cons

    Not many cons. I was really only there for the summer. It was the typical office environment. Everything went smoothly for the most part.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. It was a pleasure getting experience in an office setting with you guys. I feel like I learned a lot.

    Pros

    Everyone at the company cares about one another and they all want you to succeed. This is really a testament to the owner of the company and the culture he has instilled in everyone.

    Cons

    Because it is a small company there aren't that many areas for growth. Pay is just ok.

    Advice to Management

    Consider creating more career paths for employees so they can see what their future could be.
