Positive experience.

Supervisor (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCCA provides upward mobility for the motivated and excellent employee, and good basic jobs for those with less motivation and ambition.

ConsThe wages are fairly low for the level of responsibility that is given.
Communication of facility issues on a strictly "need to know" basis is very frustrating. One feels very disconnected from the workings of the prison when one's only resource for news is the "grapevine."

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent about news and happenings in your facilities. Get rid of the minority of employees who don't care and who treat inmates poorly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
