    I worked at Seminole County Sheriff - Sanford, Florida

    Pros

    Salary is decent, but benefits/insurance package is expensive. Other than that, nothing much else to think of for this agency...

    Cons

    Corrections Department. I left an already decent career to join what I thought was a promising opportunity. I was dead wrong. Department bad mouths other agencies but hides their own problems such as dishonest employees. Unprofessional. Spent two days in orientation hearing upper management promoting "change" needed.They specified that we, the new employees, are the change to wipe out the negativity in the facility. If they are the best agency to work for, what's with all of this "change" needed for? Why are they continuously hiring for such a small facility? They are not growing anymore and promotions are slow. This is just another jail, not a better jail that they claim. They are just different, but definitely not better. Worst career change and decision I have ever made. God awful...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management wants change, but lower management does not. Lower management runs the show here. Period.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, high morale

    Cons

    Pay is not as good as being a cop can be, but it is on par within Central Florida. You would have to move to south Florida or Tampa area to make high end of potential pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great leadership, management very approachable and friendly

    I worked at Seminole County Sheriff - Sanford, Florida full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits are on par with other government agencies

    Cons

    The Corrections facility at SCSO allows racism and discrimination to run unchecked, even after bringing it to their attention. Myself being the target of this during my employment there, I have never felt so abused in my career. There is a fear that runs amongst the employees in the facility that everyone speaks under their breath and behind their hand when voicing any criticism of the powers that be. It is very sad how many people have spoken to me about their own dislike of this problem, but fear for their job should they try to do anything about it by actually saying something. Very depressing environment indeed. It just isn't worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real about the situation there, or end up getting sued for discrimination.

    Best Sheriff's Office in Florida

    I have been working at Seminole County Sheriff - Sanford, Florida

    Pros

    You will be treated right at the Sheriff's Office. If you work hard and try and make things better you will be rewarded. This Sheriff's office is modern, the equipment is top notch, and the method of policing is an example for the nation. The current Sheriff really cares about his Deputies and non-sworn employees.

    Cons

    It is a smaller agency so there are limited opportunities to work in specialty units. Promotions can also be limited by the size of the department. The pay is on the low side compared other counties, but pay is not everything the way you are treated counts for much more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A pay scale of some type.
