    Pros

    Salary was good. Staff was good to work with

    Cons

    Too many roadblocks to doing your job properly. Company wanted to tell prescribers what meds they could prescribe (the cheaper ones). Corporate office offered no training or proper guidance. It was all up to the site. You had to learn as you went along. Training program is non-existent. Support is non-existent. All they care about is getting the contract renewed and have little or no interest in the employees. Not a place to grow and feel supported. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time at the sites and get to know how the job is done. Support the people out there doing the job. Get a better benefits package. Insurance benefits very poor.

    Listen to your staff vs what the prison wants.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and clarity due to many changes in the upper management roles
    New Management is hardly in the office, and does not seem to understand the business

    Advice to Management

    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 Management

    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
