I have been working at New Mexico Department of Corrections full-time (More than 8 years)
flexible work hours and schedule. good pay (for some positions). good retirement and benefits.
good ol boy system. its about who you know and not how much. also if you don't tend to kiss a little butt you won't move very far up. no advancement unless you want to be a supervisor. often times you deal with an unbearable caseload and you can never keep caught up.
Advice to Management
management does not care or just does not care to fix things. often times too much is expected of you regardless of pay. the amount of work especially within the last year makes it impossible to stay caught up. new policies need to be updated to keep workers safe and the job more manageable.
