I have been working at Michigan Department of Corrections

Pros

Lots of OT. Great place to work. great stepping stone for those wanting to move up. Not to much bad to say about everything.

Cons

There is a glass ceiling. Like any other government position things tend to be very political. but overall it is a great place to work. lots of opportunity to learn

    I worked at Michigan Department of Corrections full-time

    Pros

    Pay, availability of overtime, challenging, personal growth and learning social issues.

    Cons

    Food Service was privatized. Very negative work environment. Sexual harassment from older white male staff( including touching body parts even though I addressed that this was unwanted-I did not flirt or lead them down that path). Staff will be as big of an issue as inmates. The good ole boys club still exists but is probably less than it was formerly. Racism from older white male officers (not all but enough). Lack of teamwork. State procedures require us to be a positive example to inmates but so many staff members are poor examples (again-expecially older white male officers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting individuals just because they're officers - look at other options for the coordinators and prison counselor spots. Stop trying to convince older employees to get on board with compliance of discriminatory harassment policy - get rid of them; don't allow the 50+ white male officers to mentor young officers this contributes to the poison that is in the system.
