    Pros

    Never a dull moment; lots of good people to work with; your input is heard

    Cons

    Top-heavy administration; lots of rules that change frequently; easy to get overwhelmed so you really have to take care of yourself -- definitely not a nurturing environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain stability and clarity; communication is the key

    Former Employee - Mental Health Professional in Arlington, VA

    I worked at Correctional Medical Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was treated with dignity and respected as a professional throughout my profession. My work with CMS to this day remains as my most pleasant professional experience.

    Cons

    Though I never encountered any negative experiences, there was significant turnover in administrative staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My position encompassed working with correctional staff as well as Dept. of Human Services staff who were County employees. Such had created a somewhat "territorial" environment where CMS staff was oftentimes considered "outsiders." In order to work moreso as a cohesive team in an already stressful, unpredictable environment, I worked with CMS administration to include all staff, including correctional officers, as part of the "treatment team" which allowed all perspectives to be heard & validated with respect in the facilitation of making decisions regarding the mental health unit. In a very short time, barricades among staff dissipated and those involved in inmate mental health care felt their input as validated.
