Everything is CYA.
Support from management
During my tenure I had several supervisors,some were great,some were good and some were awful,however the latter seemed to be more plentyful.
The lower ranking officers were positive and worked well together.
Freedom to work independently
There again it depends who the boss was,but for the most part,everything is dictated.
Plenty of meetings,but usually consisted of negative feedback,everyone needs to do more or better.
There are not as many women as men in this line of work but they do have the same oppertunity for advancement.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Can't discriminate because of age ,but not a lot of older workers want to get into this line of work. As you get older,upper management has ways to let you know it may be time for you to retire.
If you work hard you can advance. Most training is geared for everyone,however there is some specialized training.
Overall compensation for your work
Like everthing else everyone always wants more,but they do a good job in this area. The only negative is they have no longivity pay or performance pay increases. If you are graded exceeds or meets as far as pay increases it means the same thing, nothing.
Office / Work Environment
Supplied with everything you need.
Working hours are on a set rotation. vacation may not be taken during major holidays. Memorial Day,July 4, Labor Day,Thanksgiving Weekend and usually not after the middle of December. If your regular days off fall during one of these holidays more than likely your rest days will be moved around.
Has alot of good people,commands respect and is highly regarded by citizens.
No problems here.
I enjoyed my work and felt like I made a difference to the motoring public's safety. it was just the fact that many times you felt unappreciated.
