    I have been working at San Bernardino County Sheriff full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to move around and not stagnate.

    Cons

    Absolute lowest pay in the industry in SoCal. It is depressing to compare paychecks for the same job. Anyone worth a damn is jumping ship. Problem is county wide with all departments. People get hired and trained, then leave to someplace else that actually values their work.

    I have been working at San Bernardino County Sheriff

    Pros

    Great benefits, job security, great people! There are many opportunities for promotion and plenty of areas of specification.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than many in California, and considering the cost of living, it's relatively low. Like most service careers, there's always the chance of getting injured.

    I have been working at San Bernardino County Sheriff full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent pay. Promotion opportunities due to size of agency for those that have actually earned it. Most patrol stations allow you to be pro-active

    Cons

    Favoritism in promotions and discipline is over the top. The union is the weakest I have ever worked under. Do yourself a favor, drop them, go fair share and join FOP.
