Life Safety Consultant (Current Employee) –  Columbus, MSJuly 25, 2016
Not a fan of working on commission only. Having to pay for medical bills each paycheck and then having to pay the entire visit up to a certain amount a year (in the thousands) is not ideal.
Pros
I get to make my own schedule
Cons

Amazing Company
Sales trainer/ Former Tech (Current Employee) –  Savannah Historic District, GAMarch 12, 2016
I have worked for ADS for 7 years and have been promoted several times through hard work and dedication. ADS gives you every tool you need to be successful. I have never been lied to or misled in anyway, my managers have guided me to be the best employee i could be. Managment looks to promote from within whenever possible. i have worked for larger comapnies that lose focus on there employess and ADS is not one of them. Admin,sales and techs all work in a unified front to give the best customer service possible! You want a career this is the company you want to work for!
Pros
Iphone, Ipad, gas card and Work truck you get to bring home

Beware
Technician (Current Employee) –  GeorgiaFebruary 19, 2016
Huge disconnect between the corporate office and branches. The CEO is probably the most down to earth person I've ever met. The management lies about promotions and pay. The technicians are knowledgeable, but whine and cry about every job they are given. They will complain in front of customers and will cry their way out of jobs. Promises are not kept, and you absolutely cannot support a family on the abysmal pay. The health insurance is an absolute joke if you have a family. If you are not a dual income household you simply won't be able to afford it. Jobs are unorganized, and a few members of the sales team don't bother to look over jobs. All the company seems to care about is the sales team, at least from the branch perspective. Raises are flat out pitiful. You're expected to absorb and know a ton of information, and are never fairly compensated for it. The technicians are welcoming, but have know it all attitudes, and give you the "low man on the totem pole" talk. Even if you come from a similar background. The managers will lie about pay and raises to get you in the door, but after you talk to employees you will find out that it will be years before you make a decent wage.
Technicians will complain, stretch jobs out and disappear. Some members of the sales team will over sell jobs, and will literally sell to anyone just to make money.
The corporate office is a thousand times better than the branches. The CEO is very approachable, and you get the feeling that the he appreciates everything you do for the company. The branches, not so much.
Bonuses are dictated by sales.
  more... Nothing the technicians do affect the bonus. The company recently implemented driving into bonuses. How exactly do sudden stops and fast accelerations dictate the performance of your job?
Office admins are awesome. Technicians almost always have terrible attitudes, and it absolutely affects their work performance. They will literally complain about every little thing and some will refuse to do work. Like climbing a ladder or working an hour past closing time.
You can bust your butt, but it won't reflect your pay. The company sends out raise letters talking about record profits, but can't seem to give you even a dollar raise.

Pros
Work truck, work phone. Probably the best CEO I've ever worked for

Head of Security (Former Employee) –  Heathrow Terminal 3July 16, 2015
Making sure that Heathrow's customers are happy within Heathrow airport. Guide any customers who wanted help and make sure anything suspicious was reported. worked within a small team and made sure that my task was done with the best of my ability. The most enjoyable art go the job was learning more about airport operations. Toughest part of the job was some of the tasks that were given to us, it was always about making the right decision.

Beware
sales (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLDecember 6, 2014
Non supportive team in Melbourne. ADS can, but will not compete with residential sales with the major companies in the industry. They make you jump through hoops to learn and encourage you to upsell. Not all they are cracked up to be. High turnover with new res sales people in Melbourne. Bad leadership & they will place the blame on you, not the management.
Pros
cell phone, gas $
Cons
sales process is more complicated than it needs to be

A company that truly cares!
Sales (Current Employee) –  ALMarch 19, 2014
ADS Security is one of the last remaining caring companies. The company leadership is beyond amazing and they work hard to make it a fun and friendly environment for everyone. The compensation is very good for a good sales person. There are always multiple contests and trips to win to encourage success.
Pros
comp plan, growing company, etc
Cons
lack of micro-management can sometimes leave you feeling unsupported.

Great small privately-held company

Great management, Little or no room for growth. All leads are self-generated. The company does very little advertising and commission reward plan is based on new business only.
Pros
territory is local. no overnight traveling.
Cons
little room for advancement.
