Company Culture

The culture is great; but, it is a tool to manipulate you and string you along so that you can work through all the bad leads to find the good leads. They are constantly hiring which is telling. They will bleed you dry promising you great pay; but, it only pays for the chosen ones.

Support from management

Support is great; but, management will just use you to increase their numbers.

Teamwork

The team work is great; but, it’s a hustle to manipulate you to keep you working.

Internal Communication

Communication is great. They will coach you up as much as they can! But, no matter how much coaching they give you will get you off a bad “routing.”

Career Development

Great career development for your next job.

Overall compensation for your work

The compensation is great if you can sell; but, only the select few sell. They have a system where you have to weed through all the bad leads to find the good ones. Who gets what lead is how they control you.

Office / Work Environment

Work environment is great; but, that is to blind you from the lack of money, the revolving door of people quitting, and manipulation they use to string you along. I watched people go broke, homeless, loose possessions trying to make it work

Company Image

Great image that hides an exploitative system over the workers and psychological manipulations to sell

Job Security

Longest employee I met has worked here for 5 years. Met a couple that last 2 years. You are considered a veteran if you last a year. They say that people quit or are fired bc of attendance; but, if the job was so great and compensated them they would find the right people that would stick w the company.

Challenging Work

Challenging for sure bc most people don’t know how they are gonna cover their next bills

Suggestions for improvement

  • Just get on the same page when it comes to training because it seems like some branches do things different then other branches.

What I like about the company

I want to start out by thanking yall for the opportunity to learn in grow not only in my new career but also in my life. I am so thankful I have a chance of a lifetime working in such a rewarding career field. From getting to give back to the community and charities, and being able to attend extensive training courses, to serving and protecting families. I have never worked for a company who execpts me to better myself before I try to improve on my job and who gives me the time and necessary equipment to better myself which is very rewarding

What I dislike about the company

The only thing I could think of that could be a downside to working at defenders would be I wish that we could do a more indepth hands on training class where we learn about using our tablets as well

Suggestions for improvement

  • Travel and spend time with the field workers and see our troubles and customer concerns. It is not that we can't sell it some times the cm can't afford it.

What I like about the company

I love getting up each morning knowing I am going to help someone today. I like protecting families and gain satisfaction when customers say they will sleep better at night. The business provides many learning experiences and abilities to learn and to grow by self improvement and improvement of others.

What I dislike about the company

It is all about the bottom line and meeting the mark. I understand the business has to make money but when installing a power series which takes more time and education aND you get paid less it is not right. I am not a big seller and could loose my job but I am consistently called by other techs because I have the knowledge and experience. It seems that the job has turned to what you make not who you are.
