    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Armor's salary is not bad. The benefit package is ok. The correction officers are very helpful and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Upper Management is the worst they are very dishonest and disrespectful to staff members. Upper management is the most unethical and unprofessional management I have ever seen in all of my years of nursing. They tell you they will give you one week training then after one day they leave you on your own. The Don has no clue what is going on. The turn over rate for this facility is the worst in the country. That alone should tell you there is a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change upper management or Armor will lose Nassau facility contract and keep losing employees.

    Pros

    Knowing Armor's time is running out.

    Cons

    Worst place I have ever worked. Ever. Staffing is a joke. Plan to average running THREE nurses short every day. Overall sub par care. Lost medical records. Management plays blame games. Unprofessional nurses fighting each other - weaves flying. Awful place. The prisoners are the best part. (Quite pleasant actually)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope you lose your contract. The media was right to expose you.

    I have been working at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time

    Pros

    CEO and other corporate members are hands on. They visit the sites often and are always quick to hear suggestions and offer a "Thank you for all you do". Very friendly and easy to speak to.

    Cons

    Nothing preventable but because of the ecomomy and lost contracts raises aren't as plentiful. I do feel that they are trying hard to fix this. Newletters and e mail are full of updated information, accomplishments and future outlook for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Get more contracts so that we can get higher raises.

    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best experience working for Armor was working with the other nurses because we had great cohesion. We would need to cover someone else during our shift and the need would arise to cover the following shift but as a team we managed without bickering

    Cons

    Too many shift covers especially on the weekends and sometimes they need nurses to cover two consecutive shifts. Also, the orientation period is about two days then you are on your own.
