    I have been working at Cook County Sheriff full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    For civilians - unbeatable benefits, paid time off. Good municipal government experience for new graduates or new to government, interaction with collective bargaining groups. Some great minds that want to better the CJS

    Cons

    "If you're not sworn, you're not born" - merit rank sworn officers generally treat administration (civilian staff) poorly. Bureaucracy, slow to change/adapt. Some incompetent employees that hold high positions only because of their seniority. Inability to find, tap and foster potential future leaders. Financial compensation for hardworking and skilled employee is rarely rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Put employees in the correct positions, entice good workers to stay, provide more opportunity to gain more knowledge of how to achieve office mission
