    I have been working at Lee County Sheriff - Florida full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Good sergeants. Good extra-duty detail opportunities. Excellent car use policy. The men and women you work with are terrific. Good camaraderie. Very good training department and opportunities.

    Cons

    Horrible support from upper management. Sheriff doesn't care about ranks and file members at ALL. You will not advance to anything higher than Sergeant unless you are in the inner circle of buddies. Very, very clicquish. It is more likely you will advance if you are on SWAT or went to Estero High School. Sergeants and district commanders will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. Girlfriends and family of the in crowd advance to detective faster than anyone else. If you have a college degree, you are often made to understand that "you aren't that clever and that you made mistakes and can be replaced by any idiot." Direct quote from a district lieutenant. The sheriff is against unions and actively union busts, threatens union organizers, and promotes and offers bonuses to those who do not support a union. If you donate to the sheriff's election find you move up FAST. There is even a name for it: the Thousand Dollar Club. Give more and you can leapfrog other deputies. The deputies have not had a raise in seven years. Civilian staff have. Among the lowest paid agencies in the nation for its size and area population. One-third of deputies are on food stamps if they have kids. The benefits do NOT make up for the poor pay.
