Beneath me.

Correctional Officer (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

ProsI like the once a month check., The pay is better than the private side of Corrections. The benefit package is Ok and you can retire if you stay in uniform after 20. If you stay in uniform for 5 years you can transfer to a desk job and keep your 20 retirement.

ConsThere are alot bullcrap people that make decisions that effect you with zero regard to you. Someone always has to be receiving punishment for something. Everyone is on eggshells and nobody trust the others.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it more honorable, promote from within the prison leave probation and parole out of the prisons.
