Use as a stepping stone only.
Pros: huge company, so you might luck up and find a decent worksite
Cons: nepotism, favoritism, inappropriate relationships being used as the foundation for promotions and shift assignments, snide higher-ups, gossiping, officers writing false statements on each other
There have been very few places I've worked where favoritism was so rampant and blatant that the higher-ups could plainly see it and have employees come to them to talk about it and nothing was done. This place was one of them. The Employee of the Month thing was a joke. People who really work and do a good job every single day NEVER get it! Spot awards are given to people within certain circles when they haven't really done anything to deserve them.Promotions are often given out because of brown-nosing, who an officer hangs out with after work, what kind of personal relationship the officer has with whom, or who the officer is related to. Yes, there is a big problem with inappropriate relationships and nepotism. Even the overtime is not handled fairly. If a supervisor is friends with a certain person (or more than "friends") that person is allowed to work all the overtime he/she wants. Others are always told "We don't need anybody today" when they ask to come in and work. We've had people's vehicles deliberately damaged in the parking lot, but the illustrious Investigator can never seem to find out who's doing it because "The cameras in that area are down", ALWAYS! But he can always manage to see a night shift officer nodding! And let's not forget those dirty officers, including a few supervisors who are known to be dirty, but for some reason are allowed to make decisions concerning other employee's employment! Avoid at all cost!
