Medical Specialist (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – March 28, 2018
Awesome people. Smart, intelligent, and sociable. It was a wonderful reality check of what I need to adjust and maintain. I am just interested in pursuing a different field. Must have thick skin and self-actualization to excel here.
NWDPT Instructor (Former Employee) – everywhere – November 19, 2018
No work life balance to speak of. You are expected to work 12+ hours a day with no days off. You will travel constantly and without warning. You will be "counselled" for spending to much on travel & hotels that you will live out of. Fellow trainers are terrified of losing their jobs and will talk behind your back to other members of management to make them look better. Program & Project Managers will use your division as an excuse to cover for their failings as leaders. No mission support and they treat their protection officers like children not professional officers that they are. These people will ruin your life, stay away form them.
good job for the pay but a fair amount of disconnect between parent company & local management which makes for long delays in pay inaccuracies or any other problem not easily resolved with your immediate supervisor.
The company promises a lot but delivers little. Short notice on training trips and long waits for travel reimbursements. Company supplied equipment always short. I tried for 2.5 years to get a cleaning kit for my weapon. Tried for over a year for large boots, ended up getting them myself. Replacement gear always on backorder.

Armed Federal Security Officer (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA 20171 – September 25, 2018
It is a great company to work for if you want to start a career oriented towards the Federal side of security or law enforcement but only for that. The benefits are alright and the pay is nice but there could be more room for advancement opportunities.

PSO (Former Employee) – Idaho – September 19, 2018
Management always holds the $25 per hour you make over your head and threatens to fire you and write you up. No communication, no honesty among management, they don't care a bit about their employees. Always sneaking around trying to catch you doing anything wrong. The stress working there comes directly from all the management. (which is the 4 people they have running the company. They have no idea how to run a company. You have to fight for your money they owe you and any benefits you are entitled to. You will regret working for this joke of a company if you do decide to give it a try.

I enjoyed working, and the contract was with the Dept of Homeleand Security. Controlled all access to Federal Buildings/Property. But, I notice that when you needed help from abobe, that was usually met with little to none.
Armed Security Officer/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Oak Ridge, TN – September 6, 2018
Working for Paragon was a good job, the pay was excellent. At times I wish I could have juggled between my company and working for Paragon. The leadership is a fair leadership, and the employees are good people for the most part.
