Satisfying but I should have had an exit strategy
I was completely new to the legal system, having never been in trouble with the police, and the job I applied for was re-engineered so when I arrived it was a completely different beast.
Hampshire Police are a reasonable employer, but have the same issues every service has, sometimes you get good management and staff and sometimes you don't, I was lucky at times and had some of the best line managers (Sergeants) that I've ever had, but equally I had some that I just had to work around because they were not there for the same reason everyone else was.
If you want an employer who will give you every opportunity to eat up your personal time and give the minimal thanks for it, but equally if you are driven enough to do that become a warranted officer and see how far to can climb, in my time I have seen new intakes reach detective sergeant level, so if you want to go for the higher ranks it is open for you to try.
My experience has been different and the job nearly broke me at times, they try to assist when stress levels get to high but need to stop trying everything to fix people when they break and start looking at the root cause for so many people struggling.
