    It Was a Job

    Police Officer (Former Employee)
    Newport News, VA

    ProsMostly dedicated employees. for the most part, there were some top notch officers.

    ConsEroding Benefits: Like a lot of municipal agencies, benefits have been reduced in an attempt to salvage diminishing budgets. No raises in multiple years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your people. Officers/detectives sacrificetheir time, family lives, and health to protect the citizens. Protect those who protect us.

    I enjoyed working the city of Newport News.

    Library Tech II (Former Employee)
    Newport News, VA

    ProsPeople are nice, pay is better than some other areas, benefits are good, there are good opportunities to advance.

    ConsSometimes supervisors do not always use employees ideas when doing their reports for the future.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould be nice if the pay would match inflation. I know this is hard, but it's also hard to live when you can't exactly pay for what you want because things cost more, and your pay doesn't keep up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
