G4S Employee

"I worked for G4S for several years. The raises are close to non-existent, averaging 1.5%. They also do not have a long term business plan or any continuity. They hire a lot of people, and lay off a lot of people. Benefits are OK, but you should plan on getting no additional pay other that what is in your offer."

"The company is a cookie cut company. I mean high turnover with no accountability and no care at the field level for field level work. The corporate office does like to show concern but does not concern themselves too much at the ground level. Better to pass this company by unless desperate for work."

"The projects assigned really pushed the technology envelope. At Times, we had to think outside the box."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

What don't you like about working at G4S?

"My boss. She seemed to manipulate our performance reviews in a way that prevented advancement. During an average performance review, she once told me that perception is everything when referring to my work ethic. I would arrive at work at between 5 am and 7 am daily because of the work load, but I need to leave by 5 pm. She told me that people outside the department would talk about how I left at 5 pm every night. It didn't matter to her that I was actually putting 10-12 hrs every day. What mattered to her was what other perceived."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Upper management should monitor middle management more closely. Middle management needs to be more fair and honest with the employees under them."
