Good place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good place to work. Depending on which role you are in the wages vary quite a lot. Everyone is friendly however little room for progression. Would work in the police again.

Pros

Money

Cons

No progression

Youth club with uniforms.

Employing too many young and immature people with very few life skills facing some serious situations. Not very welcoming to older officers or Specials.

Pros

No two days the same.

Cons

Too much paperwork and policy changes.

Productive and friendly workplace

The position I held was that of Customer Service advisor. This was based in the Grimsby office. We were a small group of people who worked well and supported each other in the work we were doing.

No work life balance

No very suitable for social or family life, long shifts with evenings and weekend working, not always listened to by supervisor. Wages are appropriate for the role.

Domestic abuse coordinator

A typical workday would be to sign into the police databases and email systems. Work on the medium-risk cases that have come in overnight. Research both the victim and suspect and see what came in when the call came in. check guidelines and email partner agencies (if needed) write a report on what has happened and assign a risk level. I learned how the police dealt with domestic abuse and all the parties that are involved with Domestic abuse cases. The work culture is very close-knit as other colleges may know the suspect or victim and can help with the risk assessment. preempting what may happen in the future if the wrong risk assessment was given. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing the research into the victim and suspect and the satisfaction of being able to help.

Not like they want you to think

All appears well within this organisation until you can see the cracks. There are huge faults within the organisation, mainly managment and back office created. If you want to progress, then your chances are limited. Nepotism is rife and the internal application processes are changed to suit the desired management outcome. If you are unlucky enough to make a mistake, don't worry managment and colleagues will be lining up to stab you in the back in order to make themselves look good.

Pros

Wage

Cons

Work life balance, incompetent spineless managers

Always Evolving

Every day is different. You do not know how your day is going to go until you set foot through the door. You have to be prepared to drop everything, and change pre planned tasks etc

Work experience

This was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the roles of the police and the different positions within. A fantastic insight which provided first hand experience into the industry and showed the realities of working in that job. A real eye opener.

Pros

Experiance

Hard but satisfying

You need to be dedicated and hard working, not mind doing shifts, never certain of what time your shift will finish and have an understanding family. A rewarding career.

Poor leadership with no staff value

Poor leadership who do not value staff. Unnecessary changes, unnecessary new policies and no respect for family life. Shifts changed last minute, leave constantly refused. Basic salary very poor, only earn reasonable money due to unsocial allowances. Too understaffed and under trained. Overtime rate taken away from staff. Constantly changing shift patterns causing upset.

Pros

Great team, interesting work

Cons

No life balance, poor pay, poor training and not enough staff.

Worst levels of Moral in 30-40 years

Staff employed by this company are actively seeking external employment. Management are disengaged from staff and seem to oblivious to such feelings among staff.

Life changing experience

No two days were ever the same, it would probably be quicker to list the things I didn't learn, there are so many facets to being a police officer that trying to quantify it is nigh on impossible, it was like being a member of an enormous extended family where the majority were always supportive, a great and strong resolve runs throughout, sometimes you wish you had never signed up because the things you see and deal with are just too terrible to relate but in the next moment you can feel absolute joy and a real sense of achievement and success through a job well done or just having been able to help, I would thoroughly recommend a career in the police service, as long as you have the resilience to succeed!

Pros

The greatest job satisfaction

Cons

Long hours, great pressure and too often unrealistic expectations.
