    Good compensation.
    Good work-life balance, although it can vary depending on which business unit you work for.

    New Management is hardly in the office, and does not seem to understand the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appoint senior leaders who care enough to learn about the business. Make them visit the jails and prisons in order to make effective decisions.

    Pros

    There is a lot of room to grow. Individual leadership is recognized. High standard of care. Nationally accredited at our site. Chain of command is very clear.

    Cons

    Most sites are rural. Working with the inmate population can leave you feeling unappreciated and stressed at times because you are always watching your back. Corrections isn't for everyone but when it is, you just know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. I've seen a lot of improvements this year at our site. Employee appreciation on nurses week was great. Recognizing employees who have done an excellent job across the board was really nice. Our recruiting efforts are night and day compared to last year. It really feels like you guys took some negative feedback and tried to improve upon every one of those issues. I love working for CHC

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on a variety of issues. Challenging, to say the least.

    Cons

    Professional development does not exist and communication throughout the organization is horrific

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make CHC a place people want to work. If you don't care about your employees they won't care about the company.
