Very little training once in the office. The job is great, however the work load is extremely heavy.

I have been working at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation

Pros

Monetary compensation and benefits are amazing. Always room for upward mobility for those who apply themselves.

Cons

Very poor work/life balance, dangerous work and you must know how to work well with difficult people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire quality workers, provide the training necessary for employee success. Do not micro-manage individuals who are hard workers, all the while individuals who are less than team players get away with everything because they kiss up to management.

    Former Employee - Chief Executive Officer Healthcare Services At Two Prisons 60 Miles Apart in Jamestown, CA

    I worked at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation

    Pros

    The action of the courts to take over the management of healthcare in the prisons and brought opportunity for much need change which could not be done as a state government institution

    Cons

    Managers at the top out of touch with managers on the front lines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not look for scape goats and someone to blame -- get together with staff and solve problems

    Pros

    Good pay and benifits in the Peace Officer side of the house. Promotions are available with the ability to lateral into other departments a plus. Peace office retirement 3.0 at 50 years of age (excellent)

    Cons

    Poor management. Promotions not always given to the most qualified. Still a "good-old-boy" network. Working environment (prison) can be dangerous and depressing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss major decission and policy changes with line personal prior to implementation
