    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent medical and other benefits including time off. Only $50 is deducted from your paycheck per month no matter how big your family is.

    Cons

    Communication from departmental leadership is sorely lacking across the board. Leadership treatment of people under them is very poor in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with more respect and worry less about your own ego. You can't manage people properly and earn their respect if you do not give it yourself.


  2. "Overworked but Appreciated"

    I have been working at City of Auburn, WA full-time

    Pros

    The City of Auburn PD is probably the busiest department of its size anywhere... crazy, crazy busy. Unfortunately the City doesn't pay the best and Officers don't get take-home cars. But the Chief, Bob Lee, is probably the best boss in the world. You can't find a Chief who respects his Officers the way Lee does. Top notch leadership doesn't make up for the volume of work and lack of perks to some people... but it does for me.

    Cons

    Too many calls for too few Officers.
    No take home cars.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more Officers in patrol and give take-home cars to patrol Officers.
