    I worked at AlarmForce Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The reason for staying in AlarmForce mainly because I have no choice. The economics in North America was getting worse since the September 11th, and even further worse after 2008's financial crisis. It was not easy to find another job.

    Cons

    This company has no professional moral at all, whether it is for employees or for the customers. Full of lies, bully, & injustice. Some of the guys can even earn $200,000/year just by sleeping in the office, while other hard working guys with 10+ years of contribution got fired just by doubting the leadership. Some of the leaders would not take any responsibilities for losing thousands of dollars manufacture materials,...

    competitive pay, good benefits, linked to BELL for employee discounts. Company has made serious leaps and bounds towards their offering to both their customers and their employees over the last few years and seems to be trending that way.

    Hard to have your voice heard, very bureaucratic and slow moving in response to new ideas and suggestions to improve.

    Clear out some of the slow moving parts in upper management that bog down the rest of the company
