    Pros

    This is a great company who treats many of its employees like family. Being part of such a large corporation does come with perks sometimes such as company functions, frequently having meals provided by executives and free items such as tee-shirts, pens, and desk accessories.

    Cons

    With any large corporation, things can change quickly. Many times a year CCA will lose contracts with particular correctional facilities and lay off the entire staff associated with that location. In addition, if you are working within the CCA Corporate Headquarters (or Facility Support Center as it is referred to) be aware if you are not an 'internal' employee. This company uses many contract employees but they do not receive the same treatment or perks of the internal employees or 'family members'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gauge and communicate with staff to take a temperature check of how things are going. Many times it seems like management is cold and removed and have an attitude of 'it's just business.' All employees were created equally... Let's make sure they know that! :)
