    Cons

    They don't value staff rip off clients poor pay for what they expect from you. Run a blame culture. What ever you do is never enough you've always done something wrong somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff don't treat them like they are idiots or a liability. Pay a proper wage for your skilled staff. They keep you earning your millions while you probably don't even know they exist.

    Minimum wage ,long hours client constantly adding more on to our workload.Job can be pressurising at times at busy periods.Feeling undervalued is the general feeling from staff.

    Advice to Management

    Everywhere else minimum wage is rising. Security should be getting the living wage of atleast £8.75 an hour.We work hard and do alot of hours to earn a okay wage. Why not give all security the living wage of £8.75 per hour.We deserve it for the hours we put in and lose out .All other sectors are putting wages up why not 14 forty part of the compass group!
