    I have been working at Miami-Dade Police Department full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Progressive, professional work environment with good leadership

    Cons

    Tight economy. Some of the benefits for future employees may change. Part of the Florida State Retirement System.... Future benefits may change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop personnel with potential, focus on succession planning

    Current Employee - Criminalist in Miami, FL

    I have been working at Miami-Dade Police Department

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Good benefits including insurance and tuition reimbursement
    Generous training, both in-house (Training Bureau) and out (federal training like FBI and equipment manufacturer's courses)
    Respect for work-life balance makes it easy to get time off when needed
    Very stable place to work, no layoffs

    Cons

    You get treated the same whether you go the extra mile or do the minimum
    Some employees do literally nothing and management seems to not care
    Promotions seem like they're decided in advance and interviews are done for show
    No crosstraining or upward mobility--middle management is all relatively new to the position so it will be a long time before there are any management openings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We've got great equipment, make more use of the knowledge held by the people who work here.

    Pros

    Exciting job, helping the public is rewarding.

    Cons

    Old boys club alive and well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the smart, dedicated officers, instead of promoting your pals. Would make for an excellent department. Give kudos to those who deserve it, not those 'in the know."
