    Pros

    Understanding and supportive management team, Benefits and clear structure.

    Cons

    Control Room and resourcing team severely understaffed. Once waited 35 mins on hold to speak to control room regarding an incident, however they do do a good job. Scotland pretty much left and forgotten about. Colleagues like to moan about pay but they need to understand that this is normally set by the customers and not VSG themselves!

    Advice to Management

    Senior Regional Management & Directors need to spend time and meet your people on the front line.

    I have been working at VSG Vision Security Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management Team are always available and always help regardless of how small or big the problem is, and you never feel like you are bothering them. Benefits at work can get you anything from cheap cinema tickets to cheaper holidays. Work hard and want promotion then you need to get yourself noticed and the management team will put you on development path, if you just want to work hard and earn your wages then fine, nobody is pushing you to do what you don't want to do.

    Cons

    Some of the contracts are on minimum wage although I appreciate that the company cannot really help that as they are led by their client's.

    Advice to Management

    keep being contactable.

    Pros

    Great, Management Team and lots of support from everyone including the cleaners.

    Cons

    Less pay for the level of incidents involved and risk to life as Luton has become a very dangerous place over the years. Under the SAR request you will see how many incidents are recorded with Bedfordshire Police.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Management at VSG
    Us security officers at the Luton Mall are on bottom of the food chain, who risk our health and life to keep the public and retailers safe at Luton Mall.

    We are dealing with everything
    syringes, drug dealers drunks.. thefts patrols lift intrapments, car park assistance, aggressive and abusive customers on daily and to also pick rubbish from the Mall floors all for 8.48 an hour we are the front line officers and it's quite sad that we have to face all this to put food on our tables.

    I worked at VSG Vision Security Group full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and people were nice

    Cons

    Bad HR and don’t expect any personal development

    They are a security contracting company so you are an expendable asset and accept any employment offer on that basis otherwise you will be disappointed

    Advice to Management

    Value your people more or they will keep walking away
