    Current Employee - Fire Officer in Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    My co-workers are top notch. The work hours allow for a full off duty lifestyle. Serving the community is extremely rewarding. Not many people get to have an effect on the community like a Firefighter. You truly do save lives on a regular basis and nothing is more rewarding than that.

    Cons

    The Chief is completely out of touch with his departments needs and more interested in his political goals. It is difficult to watch a very good Fire Department slowly being picked apart by constant staffing cuts. The services we are able to provide are continually being diminished, yet our senior management refuses to make a stand against the politicians. The safety of the citizens and the firefighters is being but in jeopardy.

    City of Milwaukee employees are forced to live in the city of Milwaukee.

    Advice to Management

    Remove your lips from the Mayors hind quarters.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Milwaukee full-time

    Pros

    Job Security, Pension, deferred compensation program.

    Cons

    Not what it used to be. Whining co-workers, that watch you, and cry to the boss when you are not working. Management has their butt kissers, that can do no wrong. Promote to their hand picked pets. The ones that have been there the longest, and know the operation, get denied constantly !! Morale at all time low, and gets worse every day !!!

    Advice to Management

    STOP MICROMANAGING EVERYTHING !!! Don't you have enough of your own work to do ???
