    I have been working at City Of Modesto

    Pros

    I really enjoy working with my co workers and supervisors. I get to plan my day the majority of the time. Ok pay for the area.

    Cons

    Some policies are very limiting to streamlining records and making workers more efficient. Benefits have been gradually reduced over the last 6-8 years.

    I worked at City Of Modesto

    Pros

    -The people.. Some real public servants
    -Training: frequent and on-going. (see exception below)
    -Equipment was very good.
    -Worked well with other agencies and departments.

    Cons

    -Constant budget cuts.
    -Expected to do more with less.
    -It seemed like the City Council frequently requested changes in focus based on the latest phone call from a citizen.
    -Too many ethics and workplace harassment classes. After one "bad apple" incident, we all had to be re-trained just to "CYA".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (I was management)
    -Continue to listen to the folks on the front-line doing the work.
    -Train and care for your people.
    -Focus on core functions.

    I worked at City Of Modesto

    Pros

    There are some great people at Modesto PD. They do place an emphasis on officer safety and they generally do provide good equipment.

    Cons

    However, in a rush to fill open Sergeant positions 9-10 years ago, some inferior people rose up through the cracks. This has led to some less than effective supervisors from Sergeant and above, as they have promoted even higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an employee voices that a supervisor may be ineffective, in turn affecting the job they do, listen to them. At MPD, less is done because it is the right thing to do. Rather, more is done because it will further a personal agenda, or payback an old friend or partner.
