Good job
Fire Safety Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 12, 2019
Considering the rest of the security companies are contract and have no obligation to their employees beyond a paycheck durst does stand out in this regard. However it’s akin to saying one friend is only better than the other one because ones a liar and the other is a thief. Not a bad company to work for but one can do better outside of Durst.
Pros
Union. Take full advantage of the benefits.
Cons
Management is very thinned skinned.

Nothing really special working there its just another job. You learn day by day as you see what your job or duties require you to do. Nothing really hard to learn.

Great Family to Work For
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 13, 2017
The company is a great place to work because the family makes it worth it. Team members are amazing but department heads are out of touch with the members of their team, which causes unneeded tension. People are helpful throughout departments.Office hours are great, layout of offices in main building are out of date. Great location in terms of transportation, beautiful buildings. Environmentally sustainable,
