Management don't care for your hard work
A.T.M. Tech (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB4 January 2017
Worked very hard but never have been appreciated and the culture is bad as well.
You will remain in the same capacity for years to come doing the same job over and over with no growth.

Great overall place to work
Messenger (Current Employee) –  Prince George, BC11 July 2016
I have only been employed here for approximately 10 months, but overall it's been an amazing place to work. The employees are friendly and welcoming, the management is great, and everyone is helpful any time I need it. It's more of a family atmosphere than a workplace.
Pros
Great hours (works around schedule), professional management
Cons
None

Challenging work environment change adoption
Sr Director, Information Technology (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 June 2016
As a US owned subsidiary, a challenging work environment, managing communication across four organizational levels with constantly changing priorities and initiatives. The financial services Brinks provides have been commoditized putting continual pressure on margins and operating costs. Brinks as an organization is burdened with significant multi-level administrative policies and procedures greatly encumbering their ability to respond to customer and market place changes.
Pros
Overall physical work environment
Cons
lack of agility to manage changes required to meet market place demands

Don't, Just Don't
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC10 June 2016
This company is horrible, from the second-in-command down. Its employees are bitter and negative and don't trust anything announced by upper management.
Upper management is completely detached from daily operations, and middle-management falsifies reports to thwart embarrassment on weekly teleconferences.
Guards, messengers and drivers are gun-happy and haven't figured out yet that they have no police authority.
If you are unlucky enough to be a customer of Brink's, your valuables are at-risk. Choose another messenger service.
Pros
None. Rotten job.
Cons
Long hours

Not your every day job
Guard (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK12 April 2016
Handling securities and being liable for a large amount of money and other things is stressful but very interesting. Must be willing to be unionized but other than that fantastic company to work for

Great brand, but the future looks grim
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 November 2015
The Canadian management team worked well together and created good financial results and an excellent corporate culture. Unfortunately, a lack of vision from the global senior management left a gap in the future and prevented the reinvention of a business in decline.
Pros
Great brand
Cons
No innovation and reinventing of the brand to be relevant to the 21st century
