    I worked at Illinois State Police full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The salaries are very good.

    Cons

    Training/continuing education for non-operations employees not budgeted for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with other organizations, would be helpful for upper management to value the input of those who report to them.

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

    Pros

    Lots of talented people trying to do a good job. Most work together really well. You receive better training than many county and municipal police officers. Great salaries for this type of job.

    Cons

    Upper management wants their egos stroked regularly. Their idea of diversity is a variety of different people telling them how smart they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push decisions down to the lowest possible level. Allow your people to blossom. Stop thinking all good ideas originate in your office.

    I have been working at Illinois State Police full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Like with any state job, it comes with good pay and benefits, relatively comfortable working conditions, and paid time off. Most positions are Union backed.

    Cons

    Depends on the position. Some jobs are cake, while others are crazy demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it trickles down from the top, but most managers are two-faced.
