Set schedule, meaningful work, small team, great benefits, and active work environment.
Pay and little to no room for upward growth.

Command and Control organization, when the program is supported it is supported all the way. Law Enforcement can be very rewarding. If you can get support of senior administration, you'll push through changes easily. There are some really, really good people at OSP.
Too many Type A's. Everyone thinks they can do everything. Every time there's a leadership change there's a complete shake up however the agency needs consistency and institutional knowledge. Budget cuts are constant and there is always a looming threat day after day after day. Very, very little appreciation of anything non-sworn and agency puts little value in HR, IT etc. Everyone is always under investigation.6

Benefits and hopefully after trial service go to another dept or state agency
Management doesn't share any information with workers nor each other. No clear established communication. No training,support or clear expectations for new employees. Everyone is scared of losing their job which ranges from the lowest level employee to executive management with the exception of the director. It's a revolving door there that's why positions are always posted. Employees are expendable and management has no problem displaying it. The few managers that were good were treated just as poorly as non-management3

Your work is appreciated, no matter how big or small the job. Supervisors, and co-workers are more than always willing to help where needed. They are willing and ready to listen, give advice, and if you still don't understand something, they will change it, or put it differently so you can.
This was only a temporary position. When open jobs came available I was not allowed to apply due to being a temp. Even if I was fully capable or suggested and wanted me to.1
