Pros: excellent learning experience.

I enjoyed the academy while in training. Found the actual job to be not suited to me. Too many surprises and uncertainty.
This is a job for a big man, not a 5'4" woman.

Would go back
Police Officer (Former Employee), Miami, FLOctober 17, 2014
Pros: everything except pay
Cons: pay and shady co-workers
If our family lived in Miami, we would go back. But with a kid, it's just not going to cut it. Pay sucked because of the pay freezes and cuts but it was fun. Loved being a PO there, great co-workers but there are a lot of shady people in management. (Many of them have pending investigations on them). No wonder people don't trust police officers there, but that being said it was a good place, great memories.

Coordinator for Dislocated Workers Program (PIC) (Former Employee), Miami, FLAugust 29, 2014
Pros: after counseling customers and assuring them of the potential outcomes, their joy was restored.
Cons: there were some sytemwide who could not deal with the situation and ended their lives.
Supervised a team of 8 counselors. Assisted customers who lost their jobs due to the closing of Eastern Airlines. These people were broken and losing hope. It was my responsibility to train staff to be compassionate to the needs and concerns of our customers and to meet them where they are. Encourage them to attend programs where they can become gainfully employed in other areas of occupations. The joy came back to them when they began attending classes at Miami Dade Community College or other certification programs that took less time to acheive.
