    Government Jobs

    Tax Auditor (Current Employee)
    Akron, OH

    ProsThe city offers excellent benefits with great rates. It is also nice that you are guareteed a raise yearly for the first seven years you are in a position. Time Bank is also a great asset because you do not need to worry about missing pay if you have an unexpected illness or surgery

    ConsNo room for advancement. Many of departments within the city offer little room for advancement. There are few managment level jobs and a large number of employees are stuck in the same position for their entire career.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Akron Police Department

    Police Officer (Current Employee)
    Akron, OH

    ProsInteracting with people from all aspects of life and protecting the public from harm. The feeling of gratification after solving a crime or finding the suspect of a crime

    ConsDealing with the emotional aftermath of violent criminal behavior, accepting the worse of the worse when it pertains to criminals, also there is a political aspect to being a police officer and sometimes it comes before serving the public's best interest.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain a healthy work-life balance, in law enforcement this may be an obstacle due to work elated stress. Time off is never static, you can be called in to cover a low manpower shift.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
