    I have been working at Polk County Sheriff - Florida full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many places to move around within the agency, decent pay, good people to work with, decent and improving benefits

    Cons

    Politics, but that will come with any agency or place of employment. Some not-so-great supervision, but the majority are excellent.

    Pros

    I love working here, great place to work, job satisfaction, competitive pay and benefits with surrounding agencies. Awesome Sheriff! All around satisfaction.

    Cons

    Not very many down sides, the main one that most people complain about is the requirement of a bachelors degree to get promoted. i understand the policy but wish it was not so strict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. The upper management does a fantastic job. You couldn't ask for better bosses, especially the sheriff, a man that definately leads by example.
