Substandard management, Who you know not how you do!
Fire Alarm Technician/Installer (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INJune 1, 2018
Substandard management with no conceptual reality of people/supervisory skills. Frontline supervisors are more concerned with self-preservation/exaltation as opposed to fostering successful paradigms among the companies up and coming talent. They advertise a family atmosphere but operate within the confines of the “good ole boy”, who you know system. Promotion is based off elbow rubbing over talent/skills.
Pros
The day you choose to leave or wisly seek employment elswhere
Cons

Fire Suppression and Fire Alarm Lead Technician (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 12, 2018
Very organized and established place to work. But if management fails the blame rolls downhill. Pretty flexible company if you need to be late or leave early if you let them know on time. Good company to grow with

Poor leadership
System service tech (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHFebruary 11, 2018
Fast paced, over burdened with paperwork, poor local management. Spends to much time chasing national accounts while neglecting local customers. Does not stock parts and charges customers for unneeded return trips, creating stress between the tech and customer.

Good company focused on doing the right thing
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALFebruary 5, 2018
Koorsen offers opportunity for the right people. For an individual that has the technical skill level and the drive needed to learn the Fire & Security Business this is a great company. There is a need for Fire Alarm, Fire Sprinkler and Access Control skilled personnel.

Branch Manager
Employee (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNJanuary 31, 2018
The branch 10 manager is unqualified to run a branch. Very short tempered and reacts poorly to employees or problems. He will lie to your face and claims to care about employees but that is untrue. The branch and moral have been on a steady decline since his hiring. Corporate puts profit before anything else.especially its people.
Pros
Good co-workers.
Cons
Horrible management, cheap

Stressful Work Place
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYJanuary 30, 2018
It's not a very positive work environment but their benefits and pay almost make up for it demands a lot of work for the time given and not a lot of incentives are given and it is a very stressful job and feeling taken for granted it the norm

good company to work for & good people to work with
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 22, 2018
I very much enjoyed working at Koorsen Fire & Security. Everyone was helpful. I was happy to work there. My hours were great - pay was fair and benefits very decent. I would have stayed there indefinitely, but there was a company-wide job downsizing.
Pros
great co-workers!
Cons
can't think of any

Typical Work Day
Fire Alarm Technician (Former Employee) –  Mt. Pleasant, MIJanuary 8, 2018
In the morning we would meet at the shop. From there we would proceed to go to a job site where we would review the prints and find a way to make our process of the work as fast and easy as possible within the codes that we must follow. After we have processed the whole project we would then proceed to get the work done.
Pros
everyone generally has a good work ethic
Cons
work load generally is too much and not enough techs to get work done in a timely manner

Never allow family to manage family
Intern (Former Employee) –  Columbus, INDecember 15, 2017
Used to be a great place to work but they have lost that family feeling, no one cares about the employees anymore. Family managing family equals favoritism and protection not to mention the drug/alcohol problems that aren’t reported. Good people gone or left because of poor management from on high.
Pros
Out on my own meeting new people every day
Cons
Poor upper management

Good career option but with cons
Fire Alarm Technician (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHNovember 7, 2017
Good career option with room to grow but they almost expect you to live to work for them. It could become worthwhile but starting out you just don't make enough for what they expect of you. Can be doing the same if not harder work as other techs and getting paid significantly less.
Pros
Room to grow
Cons
Long inconsistant hours and skipped lunches

Very unorganized, you will be stressed and annoyed almsost every day
Fire Alarm Technician (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 18, 2017
Benefits are good and pay is okay. However management is no good and it all slides downhill from there. Your job will not be as easy as it should be because you will have to carry the weight of your incompetent co-workers. The worse you are as an employee seems like the more they move you up in position. If you are actually a good worker look elsewhere.

Country club mentality
Special Hazards Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INApril 6, 2017
If you work in Indy, the corporate branch, it's a great company. The branch levels stink. They do things their own way, and the management is more of a club environment. You rarely see anyone from corporate come to the branches, and they rarely address your issues.
Pros
Good pay and overtime.
Cons
If you're not in 'the clique', they set you up to fail.

Freedom to do your job, but management is hand selected from among their friends
Fire Prevention Specialist (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INApril 1, 2017
I enjoyed working there. They give you the freedom to plan your schedule and then work your plan. They expect you to have a balance between work and family and really encourage you to have that.

No job security
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJanuary 3, 2017
There is no job security for adminstrative positions here. If you keep to yourself & are a pushover then you will fit in perfect- the management team will love you!
