    Pros

    I would say that you get benefits that are pretty good.Such as health insurance,life insurance,and you also get a twenty year retirement if you are a Corrections Officer.This twenty year retirement is only for CO's, and other jobs that falls as hazardous duty.You do get to work with some really good officers, and staff.

    Cons

    The downside for me working as a Corrections Officer is the shift work.I've worked different shifts for the last elevan years.I also feel that we are underpaid compared to other Department of Corrections around the country.I get frustrated sometimes becuse I have a Bachelors Degree,and I feel that I'm underpaid.We've also lost officers due to furloughs, and budget problems..

    Advice to Management

    I think the Upper Management needs to develop better ways to recruit good hardworking people.I think that they need to have better plans to increase morale around the facilities.

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    There 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 Management

    Make it more honorable, promote from within the prison leave probation and parole out of the prisons.
