    Amazing management and team orientated

    Security Officer (Current Employee) Merrimack, NH (US)

    ProsThey have a lot of team orientated things. They train you in many different things. The sights are amazing and you can do more than a lot of other companies. The benefits are amazing! And you can grow with the company. There is always a way to move up.

    ConsThe pay is not as much as you do for it. There are certain people they hire that should have never been hired to begin with.

    ProsThis company is the 2nd top private security company nationwide, it's more professional than the other security companies out there. And there majority of the security officers are unionized with SEIU local 32bj. They now have Vacation pay, Sick Leave, Personal Days, Holiday Pay, Medical, Dental , Vision ,and 401k plan.
