    Former Employee - Police Officer in Newport News, VA
    Former Employee - Police Officer in Newport News, VA

    I worked at City of Newport News Virginia full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Eroding 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Library Tech II in Newport News, VA

    I worked at City of Newport News Virginia full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would 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.
