Nothing like that always complaining

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They need to improve operation outside due to issues during public holiday when people can't get to work, they don't provide taxi for their staff's or asked mobile driver to pick security officer during covid-19 or Christmas holiday. Their controllers are rude for controllers they can call you anytime most of them are not honest and management don't see like that so they need to improve both internal and external.

Pros

No bring your food

Cons

12 hours

Bad place to work. The managers are so clueless

One of the worst place to work and enjoy. The company don’t care about your health all they want is for you to be sent to different site to work. The site managers are so clueless and mannerless. They need to be retrained.

A Security Company that Cares

Having worked at CIS for over two years I can state that they are clearly a company that cares about their staff. They do not always get things right but listen to criticism and will review their company practices where necessary. Work life balance is good and they demonstrate empathy and compassion.

If Auschwitz was based in London

I have tried to find something positive about CIS but unfortunately I cannot. The managers micromanage and the particular site I was based at had unachievable and unrealistic goals which would sometimes be changed on an hourly basis.

very professional and friendly Security company

I worked for CIS Security for over 25 years, They were always over the top good to me. All the management are motivated to improve the service and improve conditions for the Security Officers. Never had any serious issues with pay. Always fair with Annual leave. Health benefit scheme available. A really well run company. Would recommend to anyone. It was a shame I had to leave.

Pros

Total peace of mind that you are working for a professional outfit.

Cons

none.

No

CIS is a very good security company. Unfortunately, I was sent to the Lewisham hospital site. Nurses and Doctors are very good to staff.But the Security managers are crooks and have no respect for staff. Therefore there is mismanagement and poor communication.They are bullies and treat members of the public very badly. Any one that does good work is a threat to the managers. Very bad things the happening in that security management in the hospital.

Pros

Friendly doctors and nurses

Cons

Bad security managers only serving their own interest.

Productive and professional

Productive and professional family run business. No two days are the same due to the nature of the business. The hardest part of the job is travelling to and from work. The company provide ample benefits to all staff.

Very satisfied

CIS SECURITY is very considerate when it comes to managing family life and work life. The management is good. They listen and considers the change of work patterns for their employees. CIS is the best security company I have worked for. They always appreciate and reward people for their good works. There are no two days that are the same in most of their sites..

Good place to work!

I would recommend CIS to anyone. They have a good career path for progression, good benefits, fast replies and everyone is nice and friendly! Recruitment is speedy and they do a excellent job in helping you find the right job for you. One of the best security companies to work for!

The company is a family set up very sincere and articulate.

Having worked with a multi million renowned company like G4S, then tupe to a young family growing company, there was a lot of set backs due to their poor financial resources. For an inexperienced security officer,it will be easy to cope with their pace. One need to go with the technological advancement.

No comment

Working for this company is not worst in the industry and it's also not the best. People have their own experiences which differ from man to man. It's really a matter of fate, I think.
