    I have been working at Memphis Police Department full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Big city policing broadens your knowledge experience and sharpens your skills.

    Cons

    promotions are slow...average time from patrolman sgt is 16 yrs. expect lots racial bias. Memphis seems to be stuck in the sixties. front line supervisors are lieutenants...creating a "I'm ok you are not ok mentality".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remember where you started...the best and most respected supervisors lead by example...they themselves should learn what selflessness means.

    Pros

    Good co workers, decent pay

    Cons

    All benefits are being stripped, which leaves nothing for retirement! City government does not care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect your employees to pay for mismanaged funds. Have compassion for those who serve your city.
