    I have been working at City of Houston full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Houston Police Department is quite diverse and offers great job variety for each officer to specialize in area of interest.

    Cons

    Seniority is important for first 5 years. Must work shift work and unlikely to have weekends off. Patrol can be dangerous but also exciting.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and support officer and sergeant level personnel. They perform the daily duties of the organization.
