Current Intern - Student

I have been working at Devon County Council

Pros

Cons

Can't think of any cons

Former Employee - Detective Constable

I worked at Thames Valley Police full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Interesting work Great people A large force and ability to move to other areas and jobs (sometimes there are difficulties but generally you can move around) If you have kids or family issues the... Police are great at flexible working, making allowances for you. Pension is great, even though the government changed it for the worse, it is still better than anywhere else I believe Job security for life as a Police Officer (as long as you don't act unprofessionally or get into major trouble)

Cons

Senior management (like any company or organisation) are often poor The work can be hard and mentally difficult but your colleagues get you through it Moving around is a pro, however sometimes... this is blocked depending on resourcing levels Sometimes leave and duties are changed at last minute due to operational reasons - however this is part of the job and although annoying, it is important Police and especially senior management seem overly focussed on diversity and ethics - these are so important, but often it's shoved in your face at every single opportunity and I think it loses meaning because it is often insincere and said just so they can say they've done it
