    "Unethical/ Unprofessional"

    RN Management (Former Employee)
    Nassau, NY

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

    ConsUpper 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 Senior ManagementChange upper management or Armor will lose Nassau facility contract and keep losing employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Enlightening

    Director of Nursing (Former Employee)

    ConsPoor upper management. Disrespectful. Poor training

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand different nurses strengths and weaknesses and assist and allow them to grow without ridicule or demeaning them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Caring and generous

    Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee)
    Ocala, FL

    ProsEasy to reach HR, friendly.

    ConsNo real complaints, they are aware of the needs of the inmates, and staff accordingly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome back to FL... Corizon has it ALL screwed up!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Mismanaged disaster

    Nurse (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsKnowing Armor's time is running out.

    ConsWorst 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 Senior ManagementI hope you lose your contract. The media was right to expose you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for.

    Director of Nursing (Current Employee)

    ProsCEO 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.

    ConsNothing 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 Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Get more contracts so that we can get higher raises.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Professional and talented upper management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and pay schedules

    ConsSome sites have poor middle management

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore on the hands involvement on the day to day operations of sites, especially remote ones.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good experience...but

    Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsThe 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

    ConsToo 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Nice Place to Work - Teamwork Environment

    Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsCompared to other correctional health care companies, Armor provides a good starting salary and benefits package.

    ConsCorrectional healthcare is not for all. You must have a passion for it because the environment is conducive to stress. Due to the amount of patients received and their increased acuity levels this can cause for a higher volume workload. You must be organized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to make yourself available to your staff. Keep your open door policy in order to continue to promote a healthy work environment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
