    Pros

    The people are great and the pay is competitive. I get exposure to every department. There are tons of people there that will help you develop your skills. Sr management does a wonderful job keeping everyone informed. I'm pleased to work here.

    Cons

    There was a merger in June of 2011. There are still a few "bad apples" left that refuse to embrace the change. They can be incredibly frustrating at times, but those who refuse to adapt keep slowly disappearing. If they aren't in line with the new vision then they will be replaced when appropriate....as I have already seen this happen. It's a good thing though. To everyone else they just seem lazy, unhappy, and entitled. It's a good thing that they leave in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your staff to place weight on new candidates' potential. Often times inexperienced professionals get turned away, but there are so many eager people who are willing to learn and will become superb performers and HUGE assets to our team. Sometimes they're better hires than experienced professionals who are set in their ways.

    Pros

    This is a really nice place to work. Ihave worked in many different aspects of the nursing field and this by far is my favorite. If you can get past the fact that you are taking care of criminals in a jail, these are some of the reasons I like it here:
    No micromanagement
    Full support from management
    Safe environment
    Very laid back
    Feels like working with your family
    Everybody seems nice
    Doctors are onsite to give orders

    Cons

    You are locked in the facility
    Can't bring your cellphone to work
    Everyone is not fully knoweledgeable

    Pros

    I work with a great department. Love my coworkers and leadership all the way to the top. The support is definitely apparent and appreciated.

    Cons

    Again Corizon finds itself in a time of major change and all the upheaval that goes with it. Lots of new faces in the C Suite which obviously leads to change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to elicit feedback from your employees and be sensitive to what the group has been through for the past 4 years and temper any mass overhauls with that in mind.

    Pros

    I have the best coworkers ever. They really make you feel like it's a big family.

    Cons

    The facility is pretty busy and the area where the work is performed is pretty small. Being that it's busy and many specimens are to be processed there should be more space to work.

    Pros

    Corizon is a family oriented place of business. Senior Management has come a long way in establishing a positive work environment.

    Cons

    There are not enough internal opportunities. Also, it is very difficult to get exposure to Senior Managment to make an impression.

    Advice to Management

    More consideration should be given to internal candidates for job postings. Employees should be given more responsiblity to develop their careers.
