    Pros

    Good pay, clean, easy work, repetitive work, they hire new grads and experienced nurses. LPNs and RNs. The start of pay is 19.25 plus 2 dollars for nights.

    Cons

    LOTS of Drama amongst the staff. Inmates were inmates but other staff members were ridiculous. Day shift nurses are complete bullies especially one who has worked there for years.

    Advice to Management

    Train other staff members on accepting new team members.

    Pros

    Excellent company core values. The owner of the company is a wonderful person. CEO has great vision for company. Many great professional people striving to achieve excellence.

    Cons

    Caotic culture. Senior Executive R.V.Ps are not always support, respect and demonstrate kindness to others. Executive corporate staff utilized as supplemental staffing for sites instead of ensuring site administrators hire staffing appropriately thus impeding their ability to effectively perform their corporate duties. Excessive travel. Regional Vice Presidents assigned territory for many is not near home. Site administrator not held accountable for ensuring staff consistent delivery with standards of care.

    Advice to Management

    Inspect what you expect. Set the example for others to follow. Hold facility administrators accountable for programs demonstrating poor performance with staffing and delivery of health care services. Don't make excuses or blame others. Support excellent administrators. Don't always believe what line staff are reporting to corporate staff. Remember an individual is innocent until proven otherwise.

    "Subpar Company"

    Pros

    None; Please for the sake of ones career avoid working for this company.

    Cons

    The worst company I’ve ever worked for. Blatant disregard for their patients health care needs and allow patients health care requests to fall months behind with management choosing to ignore the occurrence. Poor treatment of staff and constant blame given to hard working people because management is unwilling to blame themselves.

    Advice to Management

    In order to gain the respect and trust of your staff you must act as someone who deserves it. Bullying, retaliation and unjust treatment will consistently lead to your failure.

    Pros

    A few honorable coworkers. You'll make money, but it's not enough for what you are put through.

    Cons

    A company that treats it's employees like disposable gloves. Their statements about employees being important is simply for investors and banks.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly can't give any advice to Management when in order to become management for this company you have to sell your soul. Good Supervisors who aren't willing to do so always leave less than a year into employment on their own.

    Pros

    Co workers at lower level helpful

    Cons

    This company views you as a replaceable part and will put you in situations that jeopardize your license, They bully employees, no leadership at upper levels namely Kayla the director of the House. They will attempt to threaten to go after your nursing license if you don't work whenever they ask and constantly mandate. There turnover is extremely high and its not the inmates that have people leaving

    Advice to Management

    Fire all upper management at the Franklin HOC and MCJ and replace with people who value employees and don't feel Armor staff are part of the punishment through low quality mental and medical care and refrain from bullying tactics.

    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere for first year post graduate degree career minded individuals who desire to work with diverse population in a Correctional Setting. Encourage individual to be pro law enforcement minded. Individual will be exposed to a wide range of people who have addiction + mental health issues combined; serious mental health-homeless population is the "new problem" for local county jails; and exposure to the "Legal-Justice" system is a plus for post graduate to determine future goals.

    Cons

    The supervisor's are NOT Mental Health Professionals. More often than not, the supervisors are LPN's or RN's who have limited to zero Mental Health knowledge or Assessment Skills yet somehow, Armor has determined they are qualified professionals to monitor and to rate our annuals reviews? There are NO FT Psychiatrists or Psychologists on the sites. More often than not, the MSW/LCSW or the MHC/LMHC makes the critical calls such as Baker Acts.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors or HSA's should be held accountable to the same standard in the Policy and Procedure Manual as every other employee. Nepotism and Favoritism in the workplace is extremely poor management not to mention unethical as well as unprofessional. Moreover if one employee is alleged to have committed a violation in policy resulting in that employee's termination and another employee is alleged to have committed the exact same policy violation; then the same standard and result of termination should equally apply as well. Ethical codes of professional conduct are not the norm unfortunately with this company, it is the exception based solely on "favoritism" and who the Supervisor's "Select" regardless of clinical, medical low performance standards.
