    I worked at Orange County Sheriff - Florida full-time

    Pros

    Florida Retirement System. Many resources and ability to transfer and promote.

    Cons

    Assignments to air wing not based on education, experience or training. We have several pilots including myself with airline, military, ERAU grads, etc working in patrol while others with no aviation background, are minimally trained to VFR standards flying for the unit. Selection to unit is referral and relationship based.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    I have been working at Orange County Sheriff - Florida full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security, decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    I'm my particular area.....if your office has a window in it, I don't believe much of what you say. Civilians are treated differently than the Sworn...
    Not much faith in the big Cheese to have your back.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees say. If asked a question answer it honestly or just say I'm not a liberty to say. Don't lie.
    Give your employees a pat on the back once in a while.
