Administrative Support to HOLMES, Major Crime Unit (Former Employee) –  Huntingdon19 August 2019
Most interesting job I have ever done and very rewarding. Loved the fact that I could start early and leave early. However, it was not a pleasant working environment. If your face fits you will be fine, if not then unfortunately, you don't stand a chance.
Pros
Flexi-time
Cons
More staff required

fab job
Police Control Room Operator (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, Cambridgeshire10 May 2019
A great role, working with fab people. Something new every day. However you do need to be a certain type of person. You need to be robust and not easily offended and work in a fast pace environment with considerable pressure.

Terrible place to work and people are leaving in there droves.

Staff roles are Micro managed beyond belief.

It used to be good but nowdays it's terrible.

A good force to work for
Constable (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, Cambridgeshire7 January 2019
A good force to work for, the managers DO listen to you, the workloads allocated are not too enormous and they do help when they can. If you are thinking about a career as a copper, then you could do a lot worse than try these guys.

Mediocre
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire21 January 2018
Due to the recent austerity measures budgets are still under close control and there is constant reorganisation/collaboration projects which does not make for job security.
Add to this the fact that police staff who are experts in their field are often overruled by police officers seemingly pursuing their own agenda/managing projects when they should be managing policing operations, the work environment is not the most supportive for civilians.
Pros
Free membership of their gyms, flexi working, family friendly
Cons
Poor planning and management

not all its cracked up to be
Detention Officer (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, Cambridgeshire9 December 2016
working here was great until the cuts got so bad that it started to strain people, very stressful job and a thankless one too making it that much harder. unfortunately politics play a massive part in the way its run and no one cares about the little person.
pay is great but not for the job you have to do and what you have to put up with.
Pros
pay and collegues
Cons
terrible home/work life. treated badly my senior management

Good Place to Work
Police Constable (Current Employee) –  Cambridge11 November 2016
Its a good place to work if you can put the time in.

The work/life balance is more favoured to work as this is more of a vocation but you don't know if you will enjoy it until you do it!
Pros
good environment, excellent people
Cons
dealing with bad situations, pay, work/life balance

Great Work/Life Balance with Flexi
Business Support Assistant (Current Employee) –  Huntingdon10 November 2016
Currently going through budget cuts and staff shortages which result in a poor working environment. Despite the staff cuts, there is rarely a day when there is too much work or tight deadlines so it's brilliant for the work life balance. Plus they offer flexi time and it is very easy to build it up.

I have a personal opinion which I do not wish to make public.
HOLMES Document Manager (Current Employee) –  Huntingdon3 November 2016
A typical day at work is demanding and exciting, each day is very different. I work well with all of my colleagues and there is great team spirit. The hardest part of my job is the actual content matter (crimes of a very violent and serious nature). The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a case through to trial, verdict and sentencing and gaining justice and closure for the families and friends of the victims.

under valued
Enquiry Officer (Current Employee) –  Wisbech8 October 2016
Feel under valued by management. Ever changing policies/management. Co-workers are excellent. It is a demanding and challenging job. You never know what you will be dealing with from one minute to the next - which is a plus if you like variety.

Rewarding yet stressful workplace
PSC operator (Current Employee) –  Peterborough25 May 2016
In this role there is no typical day at work, you never know what is about to happen, every situation is unique and challenging which requires you to be a fast learner and to use basic logic skills.
The management in this company are very talented however there is a lack of communication with staff.
My co-workers at this establishment are all very talented and experienced individuals all with excellent skill sets.
The hardest part of this job is definitely some of the decisions you have to make purely because of the risk that is involved with them, some of which are life or death.
The most rewarding part of the job is when you have successfully helped a member of the public to your full extent and the gratitude they show you.
Pros
Good shift allowances e.g. unsociable hours pay
Cons
Stressful environment, lack of communication with management
