Average, nothing more nothing less.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good close knit family up in head office. If you need someone it's easy to identify the exact person. Not good for career progression. Not many sites have a supervisor and the few that do pay what a security officer should be on really. Would like to have been offered the chance to go on courses etc. Ok if you want steady income but will not for career progression.

Pros

Local sites, overtime, small head office

Cons

Low rate

Security done right

UGS are a company that operates consistently within its limits, not overreaching and spreading resources thin. They have always been fair with annual leave, pay rises and learning resources. The provided uniform is as expected, with regular replacements available. Contact with Control/managers has always been simplistic, with my issues or concerns always recognised and addressed. Payslips/paychecks are always on time and never wrong. There have also been nice touches over the years, like contact from the CEO and Christmas hampers. Overall, they are a security company that stand out for employee welfare.

Pros

Proactive management, good pay, fair annual leave, caring attitude.

Cons

None.

Really a bad place to work.

Employers are horrendous. Salary is minimum in comparison. Very demanding. Lack of good manner. It is a family run agency. Where the MD is the mother of two spoiled managers, who are basically mama's boys. They all have bad attitudes.

Pros

No pros.

Cons

Long list of cons.

I have not any reason whatsoever to complain about this company.

I have really enjoyed the camaraderie that I seems to be enjoying with the Controllers and Management. I have no reason to raise any complaint so far.
