Poor Managment Avoid

Terrible atmosphere at this company , too many lazy and complacent duty managers who are not interested in the staff .Newcomerss are not made to feel welcome and they will do everything to stop you getting your leave days when requirerd and your shifts will be less come the following month .If you raise any concerns or issues you wiĺl not be listened to.And there is no confidentiality from management who thrive on the gossip culture .

Pros

BBC scotland location has great transport links

Cons

Dont ask for holidays they dont like it

Terrible comps

A terrible company. They care about their reputation than employees! If you don’t want to be respected, talked down to. Never get any promotion. Then go for it.

Pros

Nice uniform

Poorly managed

Productive at work

One of the best security company I have worked. The management and the staff are very good and has helped me in shaping my career. The over all is good and is recommendable to anyone. The organisation have now emerged with Knightsbridge security and is controlled by Interserve.

They are a tremendous company to work with.

FSG is an upward looking company that is always driving you to excell in your working endeavours. Working with them gave me a huge experience on how to see diversity as a very strong point. I enjoyed working with them on the BBC site in Central London and if another opportunity arise, I will work with them again.

Pros

Good pay rates

Cons

Less training courses

Interacting with people and seriousness when necessary

I had the chance to work in different sites to another, meeting new people and learning more skills. The management is not very well adjust due to the shifts rotation. My co-worker are very approachable and welcoming. The hardest part of the job is that there isnt enough shift nowadays. What i enjoy most is that i havent got any disciplinary siting on all of my career.

Pros

meeting new people and learning more

Cons

not enough working shift
