    I worked at Maricopa County Sheriff's Office part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many employees have a strong sense of mission. Both a pro and con, people do not overwork themselves.

    Cons

    Small-minded management, more interested in protecting their positions than making strides forward. Intellectually rigid, and chain of command is vastly more important than trying new things or challenging the status quo.

    Pros

    Good benefeits and starting pay is good.

    Cons

    Officers will never receive what's promised on the pay scale. Officers are constantly under investigations and lawsuits due to poor management and inmates taking priority over officers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay officers their step ups as promised . Bring back the pension.
