I worked at Virginia State Police

ProsCol. Flaherty has made a good effort to diversify management. In the old days, it was all old white guys.

ConsYou have to have a certain type of personality to work there. Ex-military, ex-police and (for some reason) Christians seem happiest there. Senior management's response to complaints/problems is generally "suck it up". Civilians ("unsworn") always come in second.

Advice to Senior ManagementGood or not, once you reach major or above, you're there for as long as you want, competent or not. Not a good system.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Virginia State Police full-time for more than 10 years


Pros: Job security (state government) - marginal benefits Cons: No room for advance. Very political. Advice to Senior Management: Try being fair for once. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
