    I worked at British Transport Police (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Whilst working at BTP, I worked at FHQ based in London. I had access to many career development opportunities and was able to undertake tasks that I would not have been able to at other organisations. I felt like I was certainly making a difference and that my work contributed to something important. I have met some great, hardworking people and I was definitely sad to leave.

    Cons

    There is a lot of pressure to meet requirements, once you have met your target you are merely rewarded with more targets to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    More needs to be done to reward employees through base salary pay, as it does not currently meet the market rate.
