    It pays the bills but can be the most boring job I ever hade

    Correctional Officer III (Current Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsIt pays decent compared other off the street jobs

    ConsToo many supervisors for a job that requires none ...It is true that heads swell when given the chance to boss people around

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever change from the time you arrive at the institution and when you get promoted and don't get promoted just to be the boss

    Stable and stress free work environment filled with nice people.

    Information Resource Consultant I (Former Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsStable work with the ability to be very influential in business decisions. Three weeks vacation to start and three weeks of sick time, which can be carried over year to year. Fantastic place to work if you have a spouse that pulls in the big bucks and you need something to do with the flexibility of taking time off whenever you need it.

    ConsNo opportunity for advancement until current management retires. Pay is on the extremely low end for the state, which is on the low end of the nation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe benefits can never be so great that pay won't be a factor. Pay developers at least $40k for entry level. Experience should be getting you at least 10-15k over that. You will find that a lot of good people will come and stay for that kind of range with the benefits provided.

    Serve your community and find out what your made of.

    Correctional Officer (Current Employee) Ridgeville, SC

    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
