    Current Employee - Police Officer in Mesa, AZ

    I have been working at Mesa full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is good. Benefits are very good. It still has somewhat of a small town mentality so you feel a part of a group.

    Cons

    Not very good at money management. Not too many attractions so tax money is very lacking in hard times. Raises may not come for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if the little guy was given some weight when they spoke instead of always relying on top management to be right.
