    I have been working at Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Sheriffs Department offers a sense of pride and a second family. They also have great benefits and strong job security.

    Cons

    Because of the strong job security, employees get complacent in their position and become lazy and ineffective. This can cause departments as a whole to take forever to complete tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify job expectations and create incentives to meet quicker deadlines.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good working environment, and good work hours.

    Cons

    Employees who have been around for years tend to be lazy. Performance appraisal does not seem to touch on this.

    Get rid of lazy ones that bogs down those who really work.

    I worked at Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department full-time

    Great pay, zero history of layoffs, a large variety of jobs within, very supportive supervision. Can get your perfect work schedule after a couple of years of being at the bottom of the totem pole.

    Cons

    Huge bureaucracy, limited appreciation of individual talent or effort. Focus on promoting females to meet quota.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for the Sheriff's department is their benefits. The department offers very good medical benefit packages for their employees. Also at most of their facilities free lunch and breakfast meals are available to all employees. Also there is a association available to employees that may need financial loans in between paychecks.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working with the department is receiving help when newly hired into the department from other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have complaints at all with upper management.

    Former Employee - Sheriff Station Clerk II in Lynwood, CA

    I worked at Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the job can be challenging even though its repetitive. I mostly enjoyed working with the deputies.

    Cons

    The attitudes of some of the civilian/professional staff are bad. Some of the supervisory (civilian/professional) staff need more training on how to be a supervisor.

    Not a lot of advancement opportunities for civilian/professional staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to professional staff more. There was a lot of problems with tardiness and leaving early. Installing time clocks will not only cut a lot of that back, it will save the Department and the County Thousands, if not millions of dollars.
