    Great experience with lots of opportunities but the moral is low.

    I have been working at Orange County Sheriff - Florida full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Because of the size of the Sheriff's Office many opportunities exist to transfer to different areas of the agency. Very good vacation, comp, and sick time accrual rates.

    Cons

    This agency is extremely political. It's the only job where you can be 100% right and still be terminated based on a biased media report. Management has made it very clear that they will not back you if you're negatively portrayed by the media, even if your actions were justified. Not worth having your professional life ruined. I've never worked at a place where the morale was as low as it is here. Orlando Police pays more with better benefits and backs its officers when they're right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale matters! Back your people when they're right. No one joins this career expecting to get rich and understand its a thankless career, but at least treat your people with the respect and dignity they deserve.

    I worked at Orange County Sheriff - Florida

    Pros

    Fair pay good promotional policy. Benefits are fair with a cost that is also fair. Take home car for sworn members, 12 paid holidays for all, paid sick time that accumulates so you get rack up thousands of hours of sick time. piad vacation 2 weeks to start increases with time up to five weeks.

    Cons

    The pay is fair but needs to be addresses, with poor economy nobody has recieved a pay increase in the last three years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with rank and file. She employees that you are willing to fight for them when budget time comes around.
