Reviews - What employees say

Company Culture

People are treated like children. It's a hostile work environment and employees are shown no appreciation or respect

Support from management

Most management only care about appeasing city hall and couldn't care less about their employees

Teamwork

People are very clickish, unfriendly and two faced. Unless you're a spinless butt kisser, people will ostracize you.

Freedom to work independently

City of Dallas is a very communist type environment. You must do everything the exact way you're told to.

Internal Communication

The communication is horrible. Unprofessional. It's like the asylum is run by the inmates

Gender Equality

Women are generally given equal opportunity, but I've also witnessed sexual harassment

Attitude towards older colleagues

Unless you capitulate and demean yourself you will be treated as subhuman filth

Overall compensation for your work

Workers are rewarded by being sycophants not by the performance of their work

Office / Work Environment

Environment is hostile and cut throat. Very unprofessional and demoralizing

Work-Life Balance

There is decent vacation time but some departments have long shifts and have to work weekends, holidays. I've worked many shifts over 12hrs which shouldn't even be allowed

Job Security

You basically have to do something drastic after completing probation to be fired

Workplace Safety

I've witnessed very unsafe conditions. There were no safety officers to uphold a safe workplace. They basically didn't care if you lived or died

Challenging Work

At some locations due to substandard equipment, completing your work is extremely challenging

Inclusive / Diverse

The diversity is so extreme that many home grown Americans can't get jobs

Suggestions for improvement

  • Complete overhaul of management. New city manager and better pay and benefits for employees

What I like about the company

Job security, leave allowances

What I dislike about the company

Everything. Hostile corrupt work environment. No respect for employees. Low pay rates, cut benefits. General Unprofessional demoralizing environment

Suggestions for improvement

  • The City of Dallas needs to replace the city manager and most definitely the mayor. The police chief should also be replaced, she lacks the experience and knowledge to lead a large department like Dallas. The citizens of Dallas need to stop electing democrats to public office, every city and state that democrats control are either bankrupt or on the verge of being so.

What I like about the company

The hard working men and women of the Dallas Police Department are phenomenal. They continue to serve the citizens of Dallas valiantly, despite the lack of leadership and support from the command staff and the city management.

What I dislike about the company

The command staff, lacks the leadership to run such a large diverse organization.
