Decent but not the greatest
Security officer (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 27, 2015
Pros: Union and flexible schedule
Cons: No room for advancement
This is my first security job. The experience itself has been eye opening. It is extremely political when it comes to advancement. I have completed and excelled in each of the aspects of my job and I am seen as the best officer on site. Even with this being the case, I am not considered for higher positions when they open. Management is extremely lax and does a terrible job when it comes to maintaining a level competency at the site.

Pros: Good work environment, good staff
Cons: Working Holidays, not very many people to cover shifts.
I work at the Delaware Art Museum, the client is proactive with the security officers. The main office for Allied does their jobs as best as possible. There is support there when needed.

Horrible Managment SKills
Security Personell (Current Employee), Central Valley, NYMay 26, 2015
Pros: Always have job security
Cons: NO ADVANCEMENT
Seems like anyone can get hired.... So people who are thriving to better themselves and move up in a company, good luck!! It truly seems as if employees have to not know what they are doing or be removed from a site due to not following rules (such as stealing) in order to get a promotion. Seems backwards to me.

Security Officer (Former Employee), Tampa, FLMay 22, 2015
Watch the CCTV monitors and patrolled the building and made sure everything was safe for the employer. I once stopped kids from skateboarding on the stair next to the building. Helped one of the cleaning ladies out the elevator cause she was stuck on one of the floor.

Security Officer (Current Employee), Shelton, CTMay 21, 2015
working for Allied Barton is good because it can be challenging yet it is rewarding at the same time. The hardest part of my job is dealing with tenants that do not want to comply with site specific rules. The most enjoyable part of my job is that there is a variety different jobsites so things are constantly different

Get treated like dirt
Operator (Current Employee), Lexis Nexis Miamisburg OhioMay 19, 2015
Pros: None
Cons: Underpaid, Boss is very vocal about his favorites
A typical day of work consists of doing a badge report, signing out badges, responding to alarms, perimeter checks,and escorts if necessary. I have learned that some companies really do not care about you or your livelihood. The management here rules with a dictatorship like style. The hardest part of this job is having a smile on my face. The most enjoyable part of this job is the interaction with the Lexis Nexis employees and the guests coming in.
