  1. My experience was informative, interesting, and good.

    I worked at Oregon State Police full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Your work is appreciated, no matter how big or small the job. Supervisors, and co-workers are more than always willing to help where needed. They are willing and ready to listen, give advice, and if you still don't understand something, they will change it, or put it differently so you can.

    Cons

    This was only a temporary position. When open jobs came available I was not allowed to apply due to being a temp. Even if I was fully capable or suggested and wanted me to.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't have any issues with management at all. All I would say is keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Command and Control organization, when the program is supported it is supported all the way. Law Enforcement can be very rewarding. If you can get support of senior administration, you'll push through changes easily. There are some really, really good people at OSP.

    Cons

    Too many Type A's. Everyone thinks they can do everything. Every time there's a leadership change there's a complete shake up however the agency needs consistency and institutional knowledge. Budget cuts are constant and there is always a looming threat day after day after day. Very, very little appreciation of anything non-sworn and agency puts little value in HR, IT etc. Everyone is always under investigation.

    Advice to Management

    Value non-sworn activities as much as sworn.....lot's of good competent people there who don't wear a badge.
