Police Constbale (Former Employee) –  Glasgow20 February 2019
A workplace which is very institutionalised and reluctant to change.

Senior Managment Chief Inspector and above locally very incompetent and self serving. No care for welfare of basic bobby.

Local management, Sergeant and Inspector predominantly very commendable.

Career progression opportunities are available. But, please be aware it is an incredibly tedious job, with very little challenges and most of a working shift can be spent idle and with little to challenge the mind.

Retirement age is also 67, which is ludicrous to expect a 66 year old to bear body armour and firearms and competently complete Authorised Firearms Officer training as detailed by College of Policing.
Pros
Good local management, opportunities to progress/specialise
Cons
Poor senior management, tedious work, little challenge and institutionally adverse to change.

Good work life balance. Pay as with all public sector jobs is poor. Promotion prospects is not done via work performance but instead how well you get on with your boss.

Summer Placement Engineering Student (Former Employee) –  Bristol15 March 2019
Good office environment, flexi time is a big bonus. Good scheme and chances to progress although compared to industry salaries are low, probably due to the good work life balance.
