    I think many employees take it for granted that they will be able to make use of flexi / compressed hours but need to remember this is only really possible if it makes business sense. Even though I am being made redundant I am pleased my employer paid for 50% of my Masters Degree

    There is no private health insurance but sick pay is available for 6 months then pay is halved. Very difficult to get your choice of Annual leave or Time off due to staff shortages.

    Good range of benefits from pension, to discounts on everything from eating out, motoring and holidays

    TVP feels more like a family, less like a police force. This is good and bad. There is also poor distribution of funding; some depts appear quite corporate but front line has been left to rot and this couples with the attitudes of depts internally - lack of cohesion. Good managers but no real leaders. Easy to get Acting with or without Part 1 Ospre but there is consequently high turnover. Response teams feel like sixth form, led by prefects; very different to the MPS. All in all, not bad, but they've got a long way to come in order to retain and motivate employees at a time when the government line is more anti than ever before.

    There are few benefits that you don't have to pay for. You used to get a good pension but the government stopped all that. You end up working longer, putting more in and getting less out now.

    I was able to work from home on a weekly basis, which was extremely helpful.

    Benefits package slowly being destroyed by Government. Changes to pension and extended retirement age make this no longer a selling point.
