    I worked at NSW Police Force full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Policing is a great job. Loved assisting the community. Overtime was great although sometimes a little too much work.

    Cons

    Post traumatic stress. Missing out on important family events and fun times with friends, being on call, too much overtime. Middle management up are just looking after themselves and their cronies.

    Advice to Management

    Look after the little guy. Assist those in need. Be aware of work stress and PTSD. Be much more vigilant in this regard.

    I have been working at NSW Police Force full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - A diverse range of skills and jobs can be acquired.
    - Opportunities to move around the state.
    - Can't complain about the money.
    - Roster can be very appealing (flexible roster with 4 on/6 off)

    Cons

    - Seeing some horrible things and doing some horrible stuff.
    - An organisation that seems to suppress leadership above the level of Sergeant.
    - Reasonable possibility of being posted somewhere you don't want to be.
    - Management that is obsessed with statistics and out of touch with the "boots on the ground" workers.

    Advice to Management

    Foster leadership in the upper echelons of local commands.

    Pros

    Best job ever, always welcoming, provide all the courses you can imagine to assist your goals. Plenty of relief duties to climb the ladder of success.

    Cons

    I did not find any downside to my 22 years of employment. Opportunities were there at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with relief availability and training. I could not fault my 22 years experience.
