Very repetitive work
Accounting Staff (Current Employee), Gainesville, VAJune 22, 2014
I did not enjoy the job probably because I wanted to get a bigger role with more resposibilities. This job did not offer me these opportunities. With my degree in accounting, I was more interested in getting a role in public accounting. The environment at vector was fun however.

Admin Support II (Former Employee), Columbia, MDMay 23, 2014
Pros: free lunches on certain holidays, room for advancement, health benefits
Cons: management and how some employees act
A typical day at work was that I came in to do my work, met all deadlines. I have learned the security trade while working for Vector Security. Management tends to favor some employees over the others. Most co-workers were very pleasurable to work with. The hardest part of my job, was completing all paperwork at end of month by a specific day and time – more... and the most enjoyable part of the job was the picnics, parties, birthdays, etc... – less

Tech./Lead Tech./Training Tech./Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Plymouth Meeting, PAAugust 27, 2013
Pros: positive feedback and freedom to grow.
Cons: salary not competitive in the industry.
I came into the this position as an entry level technician and was able to gain experience trouble shooting many different products and security platforms. Management had a very hands on approach and were always there to assist. The most difficult part of the job was my initial lack of experience. The best part of the job was making progress and getting – more... recognition for performance milestones. – less

Data Entry/Dispatch Operator (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJune 27, 2012
Pros: very positive atmosphere
Cons: had to leave personal family issues
Very fun place to work. Management really showed you they appreciated your work. Always had some type of incentative if you picked up extra hours, stayed over late and for coming in on your off day. Co-workers were very friendly and any personal problems in you personal life they were very sensative to your issues. Hardest part for me was I had to leave – more... after my husband died because my children were young. – less

Day Shift Central Station Operator/Supervisor (Former Employee), Plymouth Meeting, PAMay 8, 2012
Pros: benefits, 401k, extensive training, closeness of workers
Cons: n/a
Typical day was working from 7am-7pm. There was always a full day of reports,meetings,customer interactions, team members concerns and support. I learned how to be a team player. I learned that the group is only as good as the leader which made me want to be an example of excellence. My teammates (co-workers) were a supportive family. The hardest part – more... of the job was training someone else to take my place. The most enjoyable part was when someone came to me and said thank you for all that you do. – less
