Absolutely shocking. Management for Oxford, Swindon and Basingstoke area are worse than useless. No support or consideration for staff. If you want to work in Security there are plenty of jobs out there, most with better pay, so choose another company!
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Management in the Human Resources Department had no qualifications, were often disrespectful and generally unprofessional. There is definitely no career advancement even though you are told that at interview. High turnover of HR staff due to a particular Team Leader.
Pros
None
Cons
No career advancement; unprofessional; definitely NOT a Top 100 Employer

its a high pressure high stress job but with good salary perks, if you put the hours in you can make a fair bit of money but be careful its a very high pressure job with a high employee turnover, and stable income is an issue,

Managers have a do as I say attitude & no interest or loyalty to staff, if you standup for yourself your branded a trouble maker or constantly criticised for everything you do. Often received calls, email, messages from managers (even on days off/out of hours) for things that had nothing to do with me & was their responsibility but get told to sort it out more often than not with little or no information.

Not much chance for advancement in my case which culminated on me leaving the company I would have stayed if there was more advancement and some silly rules that truly count to no team building.

You receive no respect from management nor do they communicate with you but expect you to drop everything to get them out of a situation of short staffed. Pay was awful as were the hours

Poor management, always issues experienced with wages. Nothing positive at this present moment. Recently did a 2p over, given promises that our contracts will remain the same and guess what a pack of lies.

There is favouritism with management.
Treat staff poorly especially external security than internals. There is bullying, harassment and racism, drugs, within workforce. No point doing training course with them as the management team don't imply to the rules and regulations of the company policy. As they ignore the work ethics and Securitas look bad as they don't show professionally security.
