Safeguard is good for money/benefits but very stressful.
Convey Specialist (Former Employee) – Valley View, OH – June 9, 2017
Working for Safeguard in the beginning always seems to be enjoyable, but becomes more stressful as they increase production and quality standards for all of their workers. Daily, it was difficult to maintain the standards (90% and higher production 90% and higher quality) when there was no way of guaranteeing the vendors would turn in accurate work on the first attempt, as the vendors were still a separate entity performing work on behalf of Safeguard for our clients (Banks, Fannie/Freddie Mac, HUD etc.). There were many times where there would be technical difficulties, which would put us behind and we would have to work mandatory overtime. Management seemed friendly, but did not really attempt to listen to suggestions/requests from employees. Some of the management was also inexperienced and knew less about the overall work requirements than some of the people working under them. The best part of the job was good pay, benefits, PTO, and the occasional fun event.
Very stressful work environment, poor management
