    I have been working at New York Police Department

    Pros

    Job security, career advancement, every day is a different opportunity to learn something new, see things that nobody sees, satisfaction of working in the center of the world

    Cons

    the micromanagement that comes from above. All the chiefs think they know better and dictate policy that doesn't work out in the street. Investigations are dragged out because of bureaucratic paperwork and insanity. Nobody wants to make a decision and if you do, you're Monday morning quarterbacked until the end of time. You're at the mercy of cop-hating politicians, media, lawyers, judges, and the ghetto-lottery hopefuls looking to make a name or a buck off of second guessing good police work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire already. Stop treating the supervisors and officers working hard out in the street as children. This is the greatest police department in the world and some of the finest cops are at your disposal. Let them do their job. Believe me, you'll look good in the end.

    I have been working at New York Police Department

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pension. Was 20 and out, now I understand its 22 1/2 and out. you can still retire before the age of 50! Great place to BEGIN a Law enforcement career.

    Cons

    Only join the NYPD if you want to write summons and be treated like a child by "Supervisors" and disrespected by the community. There is very little "Law Enforcement" unless you want to risk your career and life in narcotics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you have not worked in a busy house, respect those who do.
