Company Culture

The culture of this agency is horrible. The morale is at its lowest and employees are being worked to the bone, while upper management gets to go home early and have time with their families. The top upper management has long checked out mentally and will not go against the Sheriff to make the proper changes so people suffer.

Support from management

Support from management is also at an all time low. Directives come from above regarding different matters, so even if you are right, if they so you are not you are not.

Teamwork

Teamwork however, is very high. And that is because the line staff does all the work and they have to rely on each other to make things happen.

Freedom to work independently

Too much micro management , the only autonomy are the people they wish to give it to.

Internal Communication

Communication is also bad here. Because they contridict themselves so much, you have a hard time getting the right answers, especaially in regards to overtime.

Gender Equality

More females are being promoted now, whether they are qualified are not.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are allowing the newer people to get positions and letting the veterans rot in the their careers, but even the younger people don't stay long once they see how things work there.

Career Development

Career development is not fair across the board for everyone.

Overall compensation for your work

You will be paid handsomely for what you do. So if you need a check to provide for your family, you will be fine. You just won't have the time or energy to enjoy the fruit of your labors

Environmental Friendliness

They are a green facility.

Work-Life Balance

Work life balance is horrible here, and always has, but it is at it's worst now. Employees are forced to work extra days every month, and supervisors keep changing the schedules or giving their favorite people the best days off, and you can get mandated to work even if you have worked several days in a row already.

Job Security

There is no job security here. They fire some people they should actually give a second chance to, and keep those who have done things that are not fitting for a law enforcement officer to do, but have still made rank. They are horrible when it come to decision making and treating people fairly.

Workplace Safety

Because so many employees are working hard, it is making the facility unsafe because if you have to go hands on with someone you don't have the energy to defend yourself properly.

Challenging Work

The work is very challenging here. Extremely challenging!

Inclusive / Diverse

We have a diverse workforce.

Suggestions for improvement

  • A new Sheriff with better management that can speak up for the employees.

What I like about the company

The training

What I dislike about the company

Everything else, beside the training and pay. This is a bad place to work.

Company Culture

The company culture here is bad. And voicing your opinion can hurt your career.

Support from management

There are good leader at this agency, but their hands are tied as well. And the overall cultural leadership is bad.

Teamwork

The teamwork hear is phenomenal. The Deputies are the soul of this agency.

Gender Equality

This is not a fair place to work. The favoritism is the worst I have had the experience to be exposed to.

Work-Life Balance

The work life balance is horrible. We work mandatory overtime days because so many people are leaving, and you have little time for yourself and family.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The entire culture of this place needs to change, starting from the top.

What I like about the company

This is a good place to start your law enforcement career, but not finish it.

What I dislike about the company

What I don't like about the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office is the favoritism, and how they promote people.
