    Pros

    Good balance of autonomy/teamwork. Our local management team practices the same type of leadership I enjoyed in the military. There is a level of satisfaction and pride I have never attained in any other civilian job.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but the possibilities of growth are endless. This is a career in service to others, which is far more valuable IMHO.

    Advice to Management

    A candidate selection program where deserving employees were sent to schools and/or training, such as EMT or firearms courses, would drive individual successes and drastically increase the desirability of your employees.
