Great environment, but underpaid
A number of the projects I was involved with could not proceed as they could not get anyone to work for the low salaries. This is why I left.
Sergeant in Ottawa, ON

Been a member of the RCMP for almost 20 years. The RCMP purports to support mental health and gender equality. It all looks good on paper but in reality you will only be a number and no one will care about you. To promote, you either need to have friends or be lucky. Really the process is not impartial. It’s who you know. The RCMP is a joke. We can see it in the media…. Federal investigations are slow and often lead to nowhere. Most employees want to quit or retire at 20 or 24 and a day. I don’t recommend it to anyone. It will leave you with PTSD from mistreatment from your colleagues or management.

Not a recommended career or organization
Incompetence and problem people are rewarded and/or moved along and made someone else’s problem. Management is generally in way over their heads. Advancement is nearly non-existent unless you’re BFFs with certain people. Everyone gets hosed on relocations and health benefits. Policies are extremely ambiguous so they can be interpreted against you. The work itself can be interesting but obviously hits max levels of stress. You’re pretty much guaranteed to develop PTSD at some point. Pay is decent if you’re willing to work lots of OT. Base pay is finally comparable to top municipal pay across the country. Bottom line: Wade very carefully into these waters as there are sharks everywhere. This is not what it appears and is certainly not for everyone.

Soul sucking organization
First off, a career in policing is difficult but very rewarding. It takes a special kind of mentality to do this job and I have no regrets regarding my career choice. I do regret the force I joined, being the RCMP. Members are overworked short staffed and work with the most outdated equipment in canada. Leadership is rare in this outfit. Most NCOs will hang you out to dry to earn a competency towards another promotion, and the commissioned officers are some of the biggest bullies in the force. There is no communication between street members and management. Trying to voice your concerns to the upper ranks will earn you a warning to shut up and fall in line or else. The health service offices do everything in its power to bully and force members with operational stress injuries out of the organization, while telling the rest they have their best interests in mind. Harassment is rampant, morale is at rock bottom, and the government has no interest in fixing the deep systemic issues within the organization. Aspiring officers, do yourself a favour and join elsewhere. The career is worthwhile, this organization is not

Rewards came from meeting challenges and not whining
A fulfilling career that i seized on opportunities. I worked my tails off. I didn't last 35 years because of pay. I stayed for self satisfaction of making a difference. The worse leaders are the ones that tolerated laziness and catered to the entitled cry babies. It got to be too many of those and I left.Its a tough job, know it going in - if you can't handle tough go somewhere else.
