G4s are probably the best security company that I have worked for. Managers and team are great, pay always spot on and on time. Work was great up until covid, then shifts and working hours changed, I found it incompatible with family responsibilities. Had to get a job with set/secure days/hours. I would highly recommend g4s to everyone, especially if they are single.
Pros
Hours, payed on time, helpful management
Cons
No prospect of pay rise or promotion, men working 8 years for g4s on the same pay as a new start.

If proper person to proper departments fix up by top management no one can beat G4s anyways. Also I wanna advice with my personal experience that must encourage and do support for any rank of employee.
Pros

Cons
Inventive

I worked at G4S for nearly 13 years. I enjoyed my time working with the company and would recommend it to anyone. Work is not difficult and there is no one constantly looking over your shoulder. Get your allocated work done and you will have no problems.
Pros
See above
Cons
Training could be better

20 plus years employed. I have witnessed and have been a victim of their worsed work related practices, to include targeting of individuals like me, isolation no recognition of constant hard work where it benifit the client. Ongoing denial of holidays every single year, only when it suits them. Constant and ongoing bullying tarnishing of your name even before other work mates have met you, they destroyou, in particular management in Limerick, I have witnessed a col a work mate harassed while on sick leave up until he died while on sick leave. Disgusting management and an even worse md in Dublin, who is on the ly

Probably one of the worst places I have ever worked in, it's a about who you know not how good you are, very poor training and support, managers are not very nice and not approachable at all.
