Great Employees, poor upper management

Public Safety Officer II (Former Employee)
Oak Lawn, IL

Pros-Good pay
-Room for advancement
-Great training and development opportunities

ConsUpper management can't get its act together and that has serious ramifications for staff

Advice to Senior ManagementChoose a strategic vision and stick with it. Our long term department goals changed dramatically times while I worked there. My department degenerated from the tip top of its industry to sham of its former self. While I was very satisfied with my supervisors and (up to and including the manager), everyone above him had no concept of how the public safety department works. Yet they did not hesitate to hand out directives that undermined our ability to do our job. Furthermore, rather than heed the advice of the department's leadership team, which have decades of law enforcement experience and are leaders in the industry, the "powers that be" elected to bring in a consultant who has no background in law enforcement or security. The result was the constant undermining of our staff which hindered our ability to protect the medical center and it's staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
