    I have been working at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SALARY & WORK SCHEDULE & PEER NURSES are advantage that is all

    Cons

    Management at facility doesn't listen to staff. Management at facility has no confidentiality and takes retaliation to employees who questions new decisions and HSA use others to do his retaliation and then lies when he is questioned by his bosses. Management allowed to break policies and procedures but employees are not unless you kiss up. Facility's HSA feels that because the employees question the process in order to make it better he takes it personal as an embarrassment and fires back on employee as in harassment when questioned talks out of both sides of mouth.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to your employees and have complaints investigated by outside personnel that are not involved so that it is fair. When any member of management has any meeting with an employee they need a third party that is neutral so that the employee and management is cover in the event any issues arise. Management needs to learn policy and procedure and the employees handbook if you expect us to know it. Management should be so much on command and control and understand that the employee has the right to question the process this is how we can make the process better but management needs to understand not to take it personal this is a job this business this is how we better the business and improve the business and make our employees better and our company better

    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Although the environment is unhealthy, there are still some decent employees that make the experience manageable. Other than that, there really wasn't anything else as a pro.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive. 401k match could be higher. Upper management plays favorites and don't get involved with the concerns of the employees. Negative environment

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.

    Pros

    Nothing positive about this company.

    Cons

    They do not care about the employees. You face retaliation for any advice or opinion that you voice. The pay is okay, benefits are a joke. They will take anything they can away from you , especially if you put in your resignation. They don't pay you your earned vacation time when you leave. The worst company I have ever worked for. They need to be investigated for unlawful labor practices, extortion, and discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Hire SVP, RVP, and HSA that are honest, caring people.or get out the correctional healthcare!

    Pros

    None , literally zero. If there was even one of be fair enough to include it . Why would anyone put up with the total lack of anything one expects from an employer.

    Cons

    Administrative nightmare , forced overtime , threats for questioning any policy , which are made up on the fly , totally disrespectful to professional nurses, short your pay and make you wait and fight to get it . Worst experience ever.

    Advice to Management

    Nurses are a limited commodity

    Pros

    Good pay. Good cheap food in the cafeteria. Worked with a highly qualified dentist. Friendly professional associates.

    Cons

    Very limited services and experience for the serious dental asst.: extractions, temporary fillings; very little else. A lot of paperwork: patient information on several forms: request form, dental call list, consent form, charge form, dental log, sharps log, x-ray film envelope. Emphasis on the security of the dental instruments (daily instrument count) often leads to severe targeting of the assistant after mistakes that in any other setting would be considered minor and excusable. One assistant was fired by a high-level supervisor on her 2nd day after supposedly "miscounting" air/water syringe tips, when one was set out to be used (all are supposed to be in the drawer before being counted). Another was fired after an instrument was found in the trash, with no proof of culpability. Inefficient use of time with patients: a lot of talking, some of it necessary and helpful, much of it unnecessary and self-indulgent.

    Advice to Management

    Provide written direction to dental asst., as well as documentation of reprimands and direction for improvement of work performance.

    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The experience of working in corrections is great. Our team is amazing. Shockingly, neither of these have anything to do with Armor.

    Cons

    Working for Armor is great, if you like being repeatedly accused of being lazy and inept. If you enjoy having no written policy, and an employer who backtracks on verbal policy when it's convenient, then this is totally the company for you. This company excels at looking over your shoulder and punishing the entire group for simple mistakes, instead of training and discussion. This company also does a fantastic job of treating LPNs poorly, and seems to forget that we are actual nurses. It says so, right in our title. Armor is a terrible company to work for, and despite their oft touted rhetoric of, "Of service to others", and "being a team" and "they are patients first, not inmates", they do a terrible job of actually providing what we need to provide appropriate patient care. They also seem to forget that it's us, the LPNs, RN, and MAs who are in the trenches, providing care and establishing appropriate patient relationships with people most of society would like to see dead.

    Advice to Management

    - written policy would be helpful. On actual paper. - Training that doesn't dissolve into arguing about our ineptitude when we try to tell you that what you're saying isn't feasible. - Stop letting people from corporate make punitive decisions that are over the top and irrelevant to situations that could be resolved with training and discussion. - Don't wait to train your staff about your policies until a year after you've been in facility.

    great pay that is all

    Cons

    hideous management, expensive benefits that DO NOT PAY! They promise all these lifelines,people you can speak with, access to employee sites and nothing after almost 8 months has happened or panned out! They hire non-medical staff to run a medical site and they have no idea what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    listen when employees talk, especially ones that are coming to you about your staff that are not in your employee!
