Correctional Officer (Current Employee)
Ridgeville, SC

I have been working at South Carolina Department of Corrections - Columbia, South Carolina

ProsIt's an opportunity to serve. It's interesting and challenging work. You learn a lot about yourself and human behavior.

ConsPay is limited. You deal with people who can be extremely unpleasant. Employees risk injury every day. You need to have a strong mind. You are surrounded by cursing and vulgarity, which can easily creep into your conduct and conversation. You need to have strength of character to resist that temptation.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs in most workplaces, there are power struggles that sap the organizations morale. There are gifted people whose talents are underutilized. We have a large gap between the training manual description of the work and the customary and accepted practices of the workers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
