Poor management, sending under prepared and under qualified officers to site, allowing long serving securitas staff to do what they want and not follow site instructions while staff recently tupe'd over get treated differently, appointing team leaders who are lazy and have zero management skills.
Pros
Pay for SIA renewal
Cons
Poor management

The job is a good job. The Branch Manager doesn't get round site so therfore doesn't know the job or the people.Very clicks which brings double standards.The branch manager deals with the same situation dependant on who you are. The officers. They have an engagement manager who you never seem to engage with.
Pros
Regilar pay
Cons
Dont really care about the welfare of the staff. Bottom line is their only concern

We had calls daily, emails of support, meets outside with the management team. Thank you for hard work awards,assistance with training, the bronze training is amazing and I thank my managers for putting our team in silver training

Whylst all my work colleagues were absolutely superb the evil minded management spying on staff thru the crack in the office door and consequently having 17 dissaplinariess in 1 day just enforced the view that management were not suitable to hold their position.. A position of threat and fear ruling
Pros
Work colleagues the best
Cons

This company has really bad ethics and seems to have no concern for the health and safety of it's employees. I started working for Securitas as a result of a TUPE at the National Gallery. After Securitas took over the security department they changed almost everything even after telling us they wouldn't. Significant cuts to staff were made and security standards have dropped. Most of the original staff have been made redundant or resigned.
Pros
None
Cons
Incompetant managers

Have worked for this company for near 2 years. Work hours and locations change with very little or no notice at all. Told to check portal for work. Deep seated favouritism. Management not available at weekends nor do they visit site. No paid breaks. Managers working from home and sometimes unprofessionaly shout at at staff over the phone. Workplace culture is stale and breeds contempt from and between staff. Pay is up and down, can be dropped from 56 hours down to 42 hours.
Pros
Easy job and some good co workers.
Cons
Management, pay.

work culture is ok but most . staff are from the x forces so if your not into it as in conversation it can get very boring as that's all they know. meeting new people ,is something i looked forward to on my shift. Pay was not bad but you have to put in long hours. i was not 1 for travel but had to spend lots on fuel been sent to really far locations all in all i worked there as i was from a security back ground .after 29 years i called it a day fun times.
Pros

The shift patterns are not great. I worked at the University of Bedfordshire and they were making me work from 5.30pm-6.30am every Friday. I would only have Sunday’s off. I worked there for 4 months and I couldn’t manage.
Pros
Relaxed
Cons
Long hours and not much work-life balance

managers and supervisors do not have a proper training to manage people .they are rude instead. Head office is run by immature group where they all are related to each other and more!perhaps thats why they don't care about the security officers .no wounder no officers last longer at this company. You can't have social life ,consitant calls on days off for shift covering at different sites .if you don't agree they will start threatening you of sacking you . Or your hours will be dramatically reduced ,I ended up getting 30 hours only for the entire month .Do not work for securitas.
Pros
None
Cons
Calls on days off

Security employment depends wholly on the site you're allocated. They vary to such a wide extent. Some are over demanding and regard security staff as general purpose lackeys, others can be bearable and then if you are really fortunate you'll find pure gold. Treated with respect ,fairly paid and friendly staff to work with and for. I have experienced several of a wide spectrum and have a great deal of sympathy for those placed on sites with absolutely no merit at all. Sadly it is a lottery.
Pros
Clean comfortable and warm work station. Personal efforts trusted and appreciated
Cons
Any outside work in foul weather and no shelter.
