      Poor management, no work life balance

      Pros

      Getting to experience and handle interesting cases Meaningful work

      Cons

      Your work is not appreciated. There is no room for error. Higher and middle management lacks empathy. They don't seem to care about officers' welfare. Gossipy colleagues. Quite a toxic work environment to be in. I see pregnant colleagues getting flamed for not being in office when their movement is really very restricted with a big tummy. I see colleagues who are stressed and need a break being persuaded to continue doing shift work. I see colleagues with family problems/marriage problems because of their absence at home. I see supervisors being unkind and passive aggressive to officers. Very gloomy place to be in.
