    Management allows employees to have a great work-like balance and is supportive of employee needs and development. Company leadership is very knowledgeable about industry developments and personnel training requirements. They also display a strong commitment to ethical personnel management.

    Pros

    The work itself is fairly easy and its a fun job and okay pay. The employees are all friendly and kind.

    Favoritism, no recognition for excellent service, will write you up for any little thing, promoted a officer to captain over sergeants and a lieutenant due to favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote qualified people not people you like.
